  1. Walk through the execution of the PI Connector For UFL's INI files

    The PI Connector For UFL does not have a graphical INI file editor, so customers must either use the one from the PI Interface For UFL or write the code manually. In the user guide, there are text descriptions of how to write the code and how it is executed, but it can be difficult to visualize, and customers end up either wasting a lot of time learning the language or using the PI Interface For UFL instead.

    Please make a video that walks through the execution and flow of control of the INI files, highlighting line-by-line which part of…

  4. SQC Alarms and Charts in PI AF and PI VISION

    Understanding that PI VISION is not going to provide a 1-to-1 solution to that of PI Processbook's SQC Symbol in the near future (see below referenced link) I believe it would help many people if a course will be created @ OSISoft learning website which will explain in details how to cover the SQC topic using PI data archive SQC points ("RTSQC"), PI AF (Attributes and Analysis) & PI VISION.

    Generating SQC alarms is possible using the PI SQC Alarms mechanism (config. wizard via PI SMT) which helps to build the critical PI Points (LCL,UCL, CL, etc) needed for SQC.…

  5. Make viral advertisement videos

    Problem

    OSIsoft's advertisement videos so far are vague and boring. They simply reiterate the ideas of easily accessing your data from a central location and saving lots of time and money. They throw some statistics and success stories in your face, and then say that the PI system is responsible. This is not enough to make someone want to buy PI. There is not enough information on how PI helps achieve success. The PI system is barely shown off, and the viewer is left scratching their head, not quite seeing how the pieces fit together.

    In addition to the poor…

  8. Update Cloud-based PI AF Training Videos & Exercises to reference PI Vision

    I am taking the "Building Asset Hierarchies with PI AF - Online Course" in attempt to learn how to use AF in PI Vision. There don't appear to be any on-line courses for PI Vision either. Given current COVID19 pandemic I can't attend a PI Vision course at an OSIsoft training facility.

  10. RtReports Designer + using Event Frames

    RtReports Designer Course in OSIsoft Learning courses

    Would be great to be able to go through an RtReports designer course @ OSIsoft learning.

    Key Learning Items:
    1. Designing a Report from Scratch
    2. Using PI Event-Frames & Child Event Frames in RtReports (and not just PI Batches)
    3. Running data aggregations\calculations in AF and presenting it in RtReports in appropriate formatting
    4. Creating Trends efficiently and presenting in appropriate formatting in RtReports

  11. Tie training registration to customer account for free EA online classes

    OSIsoft online classes are now free of charge for EA customers, which is great, but they need to enter their voucher code in order to complete the free registration. This requires that the same code used for non-free classes be disseminated. Since customer accounts are associated with (Salesforce) sites in our system, it would be better to just identify the site the trainee is associated with and then allow that information to be used to identify them as an EA customer. This would reduce the friction of providing these classes to our larger EA customers.

  12. Include software version numbers on online course outlines

    Before purchasing an online course, you should be able to see which software version numbers the course uses to determine if it will be suitable for you, or where you should expect things to be a little different. A simple list of software used along with their version numbers in the course outline should do.

  13. Enable HSTS on learning.osisoft.com

    Please enable HSTS on learning.osisoft.com to help prevent SSL stripping attacks, improve the page load time for people simply typing "learning.osisoft.com" into their address bar, and prepare for (hopefully) eventual HSTS preloading.

  14. Reduce the load time of learning.osisoft.com

    learning.osisoft.com can take 10 seconds to load for users that are not in North America. Fortunately, there are some low-hanging fruit to make it even faster. Please consider minifying the HTML, JavaScript, and CSS files and implementing other changes pointed out in the link below:

  15. Clean the HTML code of learning.osisoft.com

    The Nu Html Checker points out many issues with the HTML code of learning.osisoft.com:
    https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=https%3A%2F%2Flearning.osisoft.com%2F

    These issues indicate that the website might not be displaying as intended, or that useless code is included as part of the page, which only adds to the page size and makes the page slower to load.

    Please fix these issues.

  16. Use an opaque background for the course calendar side bar

    Currently, the course calendar side bar has a transparent background and is designed to not scroll when the rest of the page scrolls. On laptop screens, this means that when the page is scrolled down, the footer overlaps with the side bar, making the bottom portion of the side bar hard to read. Please make the side bar have an opaque background that overrides any colours on the rest of the page when the two overlap. See the screenshots for more details.

  17. 'Configuring a Simple PI System' - Make more appliciable to non-cloud users

    When registering for courses, it recommends using your own PI system if possible rather than the cloud environment. However, when in the last three sections of the Configuring a Simple Pi System course, a lot of the videos are simply following what the instructor is doing in the cloud environment, which is not applicable to those not using it. In that case, I'm OK with a "how-to" but maybe more of a description of the "why" behind what is being selected and what to do if you are not in the cloud environment.
    For example, Creating PI Points in PI…

  18. Make a course about OSIsoft cloud technologies

    OSIsoft currently offers OSIsoft Cloud Services and PI Cloud Connect, and it will only continue to expand its offering of cloud-based technologies and programs that integrate with cloud services.
    https://www.osisoft.com/Solutions/OSIsoft-Cloud-Services/

    Please make a course about these and allow the customer to practice in a Training Cloud Environment. As with any multi-program course, the benefits are that the customer will learn how to use their current cloud setup more effectively and that they will understand parts of the OSIsoft cloud that they don't currently use. The latter will help them see the benefits of the OSIsoft cloud, which translates to more…

  19. Make some videos about OSIsoft Cloud Services

    OSIsoft has currently not posted any videos about OSIsoft Cloud Services. The videos on YouTube that do cover OSIsoft Cloud Services were not posted by OSIsoft.

    Some topics to cover could include what it is, how to use it, what problems it solves, why even a small business might want to use it, how it differs from PI Cloud Connect, etc. This would not only be helpful for current users, but it would also help advertise OSIsoft Cloud Services and attract more customers.

    I feel that some customers are in the same boat as me. They know that the cloud…

  20. Redirect HTTP traffic to HTTPS on cdn.osisoft.com

    Here, on OSIsoft UserVoice, under OSIsoft Learning, there is a link to an infographic:
    http://cdn.osisoft.com/osi/infographics/OSIsoft-learning-infographic.pdf?_ga=2.87749400.1055004684.1555988848-382715633.1548508508

    The 1st problem is that the link is HTTP instead of HTTPS. The 2nd problem is that HTTP traffic is not redirected to HTTPS on cdn.osisoft.com. Please fix both issues.
