  1. Business Partner Collaboration

    Enable a way for external organizations that are partners that are sharing data and displays to also communicate & collaborate with each other in the context of their sharing community SO THAT everyone in the community can leverage the expertise of the community members and work together to meet their collective business objectives.

    Support a chat/message board to enable collaboration and sharing of ideas within a 'community space'.

  2. Community Membership Expiration

    As a Community Lead, I need the ability to configure an expiration date on membership to a community SO THAT contractors automatically lose access after their contract / project is finished.

    In these cases, their member account should be deactivated (not deleted). If they want to gain access again, there should be a way for them to contact the Community Leads to reactivate their account.

  3. Share Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in Communities

    When I'm a member of a data sharing community, I see value in being able to view the names of community members from other Accounts SO THAT I know specifically who has access to our data and I can collaborate with my business partners in an easier way.

    If PII was shared in a community, users would have the ability to opt out of this functionality.

    Please capture any feedback, value prop, scenarios regarding PII sharing to this idea.

  4. Community Exit Strategy

    As a Community Lead, I need to stop sharing data with a partner/vendor/service provider that is providing services to me but we decide to terminate the relationship (perhaps choose a different service provider).

    In this situation, we would like to still retain access to the history of the community because you might need to determine what the vendor was doing with your equipment back in history.

    NOTE: Please use the comments section for this idea to help document your requirements and use cases when a sharing relationship or contract is terminated.

    We need to do more customer research on what the expectations are when a Community is dissolved (perhaps the business relationship has gone another direction) … what happens to the old Community information? what stays around and is accessible vs not anymore?

  5. Short Term / Temporary Community

    As a Community Lead, I need be able to support temporary Communities by deactivating a Community after a project is completed (in a couple of months) SO THAT we can protect our data that they no longer need access to.

    Example Use Case: CompanyA contracts an OEM to manufacture custom equipment for their manufacturing process. While the OEM is building and testing the equipment, the CompanyA wants access to the data to support design and testing efforts at the OEM site. This way, CompanyA's engineers can monitor and provide input into the development and qualification process while working remotely. Once…

  6. Contact Community Admin or Moderator

    Have a way to contact another Community Admin or Moderator from another tenant SO THAT I can work through any issues with them in a community.

  7. Disable PII (Personally Identifiable Information) from being shared in Communities

    If personally identifiable information (PII) is ever capable of being shared across tenants in a Community, have a Community configuration option to turn this off for a specific community SO THAT PII can explicitly be protected.

    NOTE that currently, PII information is not shared across tenants for members within a community. If that ever changes, there needs to be this option to disable.

  8. Deactivate & Reactivate Community Membership

    As a Community Lead, I need the ability to deactivate and reactivate Community member access into a community SO THAT I can restrict access to only those members that are using the data frequently

    We have started development on Community Management features and Stream data sharing in OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) to enable sharing of operational data across tenants.

    As part of this work, a Community Owner & Moderator will be able to add and remove users from their tenant to the Community.

  9. Use Community for Sharing within the same Tenant

    Ability to use Community to share data from different namespaces within the same tenant.

    An example would be a connected services customer who is storing data for their customers within their tenant. Data is segregated by Namespace. These customers may want to share subsets of data with each other. So the Community would contain 1 tenant and data from different namespaces within that tenant, and users of that tenant (who may only access the data through an external app like Power Bi or the Connect Service provider's own Portal).

  11. Transfer Community 'Owning Tenant' to another Tenant

    Ability to transfer the owning tenant / account administrator from one tenant to another tenant in a community.

    This would be useful for situations where one tenant (service provider) may get the community setup but then would like to transfer the ownership to another tenant moving forward.

    Additionally, it would support scenarios where the owning tenant leaves a peer community (with many tenants) and needs to transfer ownership.

  12. Single Community Lead

    As a company that shares data with it's partners, I need to explicitly control who can invite users from other Accounts into my Community SO THAT I can control access. In this model, I will invite all external users into the Community rather than a model where another 'trusted' partner is also a Lead in a Community.

    This idea is in contrast to the 'Shared Community Lead' idea: https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/597811/suggestions/19121905

  13. User Profile Image

    The ability to use a user profile image within the OCS portal and for use within data sharing scenarios (communities) SO THAT other users and partners you may be working with can put a face to the name.

  14. Create an Internal Community for Sharing Data, Displays, and Collaborating Internally

    Create an Internal Community that includes members from the same company or organization (Account). No data or content is shared with external organizations.

    ===
    Example Use Cases:
    * Collaboration around assets (Pump Experts)
    * Collaboration around a business goal (Reducing Downtime, Energy Usage, etc.)
    * Collaboration around a social goal (improving health by all company Fitbit users)

    ===

    NOTE: if you have example use cases, please add them to the comments of this idea!

  15. Shared Community Lead

    As a company that shares data with it's partners, I would like to invite another person from my partner's account to also be a Community Lead SO THAT they can add and manage users from their Account in the Community. Our community Lead will manage our users, our partner's community lead will manage their users.

    This idea is in contrast to the 'Single Community Lead' idea. https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/597811/suggestions/19121872

  16. Peer Community for Collaborating around Shared Interests or Goals

    The ability to create a Community for sharing data, displays, other artifacts, and collaborate among many Peers (or potentially competitors) that share a common interest or goal.

    Some Assumptions about 'Peer Communities':
    * A peer community could potentially include many different companies/organizations (tens to hundreds?) ... more than 2.

    * The data shared into these communities from any 1 company might be very limited in nature. (narrow scope)
    * Does the data need to be anonymized before being shared into the community?
    * Are their potentially members of a peer community that don't own any data but help analyze or…
