  2. Dynamic element search/view for rollup

    As a user of Asset Analytics I would like to have more flexibility in including elements in my rollup calculation so that I would not need to build large hierarchies just for the purpose of rollup analyses.

  9. Push Notifications: Ability to receive notifications on my smart phone via an app

    As a Notifications user I would like to receive push notifications on my phone so that I can quickly respond to the alert.

    This is more efficient than receiving an email since it will quickly catch my attention.

  10. Ability to send a notification without being triggered by an event frame

    As a notification user I want to receive a report on daily or weekly basis but I don’t want to store any associated data about it like the event frame information or the notification history since I use event frames for other purposes and I don’t want to clutter my PI system

    The “cut” or “move” functionality has not been implemented in PI System Explorer yet, but would be a useful feature. When it is implemented, it will work similar to cut & paste of files in Windows where it will not delete the source until it has been copied to the destination.

  16. Ability to visualize AF element connectivities like a graph using PI System Explorer

    As a user, I want to be able to view AF element connectivities using a graph view rather than a tree, so that I can see more relationships between elements than just parent-child as in a tree.
