  1. Be able to find "[日本語/Japanese] PI DataLinkを使用した基本的なレポートの作成" using filters on content type and language

    The course "[日本語/Japanese] PI DataLinkを使用した基本的なレポートの作成" currently appears on the All Content page (https://learning.osisoft.com/page/all-content) only when no filters are active. Instead, the course should be classified as a self-paced Japanese course. This would mean that Japanese would need to be added to the list of languages.

  2. List the English version of "Enabling Condition Based Maintenance (CBM)" on the All Content page

    The registration page for this course can be accessed from the Power User learning path page (https://learning.osisoft.com/page/power-user-path), but cannot be accessed from the All Content page (https://learning.osisoft.com/page/all-content) unless you do a text search for it. Please make this course appear on the All Content page. Its Portuguese counterpart already appears on the All Content page.

  3. 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…

  5. 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.…

  6. 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…

  9. 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.

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

    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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  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. '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…

  17. 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…

  18. Replace & redirect http://cdn.osisoft.com with/to https://cdn.osisoft.com

    The domain cdn.osisoft.com is used to store some of the downloadable content for OSIsoft Learning, such as the workbooks of all instructor-led courses and the infographic linked below that is referenced from the OSIsoft Learning section of the feedback website.
    http://cdn.osisoft.com/osi/infographics/OSIsoft-learning-infographic.pdf?_ga=2.87749400.1055004684.1555988848-382715633.1548508508

    Whenever links from cdn.osisoft.com are used, they are the HTTP version, which wouldn't be so bad if cdn.osisoft.com redirected from HTTP to HTTPS.

    Please fix both issues. Replace the HTTP links with their HTTPS equivalent and redirect HTTP to HTTPS on cdn.osisoft.com
