  3. RtReports end time for ongoing batch

    The RtReport batch end time and duration should show N/A or * while the batch is still in progress. Users might be generating the report and commenting on it before the batch ends. The current format could cause confusion for the user by showing the time that the report has been generated as the batch end time for a batch that has not been completed yet.

  5. Have both default PI Data Archive and Asset Framework Server load in generator

    Some customers are using the same RtReports Server to connect to both PI Data Archives (for batches) and Asset Framework Servers (for Event Frames) since they are using both at the same time. They'd like to be able to store both DA and AF/Database in the Generator, so there's no need to click around selecting them.

  6. Gridline frequency of X axis in trends

    As mentioned in case 00677743, we wish to be able to format the X axis also.

    For example 15 minutes step. Or 4 grid-lines per trend.

    Also the time value is formatted as integer, e.g. 11.75 hour(s).
    would be nicer if 11 hours 45 minutes.

    Cosmetic things.

    Thank you

  7. Monitor Rtreports tag's Annotation

    all the report's approval, verification status saved in the Annotation of the PI Tag, we want to develop a customized application to monitor the tag value to report the system administrator the status of the batch report approval in real-time. That approval and verification information is encrypted as a byte array in the annotation, we hope Osisoft can help us to transfer that byte array to readable string.

  9. Prevent table rows from being split across pages

    A table row with wrapped text can be split across multiple pages. Provide the ability to shift the entire table row to the next page if it would be split across pages.

  10. Enable Including Event Frames in Time Based Report

    It would be useful to have the possibility to include EFs in a Time Based Template.

    For example:


    • if downtime events are recorded as Event Frames, I would like to report on all the downtime EFs occurred in the last month (for example), including acknowledges and annotations.

    • Using PI Connector for Siemens Simatic PCS7, conditions end-up in PI Event Frames accompanied with a related set of static and dynamic attributes. Having the possibility of including Conditions EFs in a time based report could be useful.

  11. New line or Next line character - Need a "Formating" control character/object such the users may ensure object(s) start on the next line

    The current RtReports does not have any "next line" control character/object that customer is using Text object: </br> which is not recommended by OSIsoft developer

  13. Send notification to next approver-group in approval cycle

    Provide the possability to send notifications based on the approval-cycle status of the report.
    For example: In a "two-steps" approval cycle, send a notification to the final approval group when the first group approved the report.

  14. Support report generation against any batch level

    As a RtReports user, I would like the context level I select in the RtReports Generator to be the context used in the generated report. For example, if I click on a PIUnitBatch I would expect to see only data from within the start and end time of the PIUnitBatch. The current behavior is to crawl up to the top level of the batch structure and use that for the context of the generated report.

  15. Support reading native EF comments and annotations

    As an RTReports administrator I would like to have the ability to incorporate comments and annotations that users attach to Event Frames .  For example, I would like generate a notification report for a unit over a period of time - PI notifications now stores acknowledgments, comments, approvals and I think severity in the AF database.  when generating my notification report I would like to incorporate this data into my report.

  16. Improve the user experience of the "Report Edit" window

    When editing the report Criteria in RtReports, editing the text fields leaves the "OK" button grayed out. In the attached screenshot, the user has edited the "Recipe" criteria field and then clicked into the "Product" criteria field. The "OK" button remains grayed out. The same behavior also exists if you use the Tab key to change fields.

    Currently, the user must hit the Enter key in order to have the changes picked up, which enables the "OK" button. This can be confusing, especially for new users that do not know of this requirement.

  18. Support writing annotations, comments, approvals to AF

    As a PI User, if I comment and approve a report in RTReports, I would like to have the ability to view those comments approvals, etc in other PI visualization tools like DataLink and PI Vision. 

    If Comments, approvals, esigs could be attached to the associated EF and stored in the AF database, this data set would be more easily consumed by others in my organisation.

  19. Allow non-recurring time based RtReports to use the "Generated By" report info parameter

    Currently, non-recurring time based RtReports do not properly resolve the "Generated By" report info parameter. Instead of displaying the user, these printed reports display the text "Generated By".

    On the other hand, batch reports and officially printed recurring time based reports resolve this parameter properly.

    In order to provide a consistent behavior, non-recurring time based reports should be able to make use of this report feature.

    Enhancement Request:  Allow the ability to either export a CSV or copy the contents of the Report Properties window
