  1. Live chat with online course facilitators

    I would like to suggest 'chat' module integrated with online courses so that student can easily chat with the facilitator instantly. Although my facilitator has given me 200% support on email but it would be more easier if it will be on chat so the questions and clarifications can be resolved quickly.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. Local online course facilitator for Asia Pacific customers

    As a customer who is based in China, the time difference between me and the course facilitator in the United States is too long, resulting in opposite work hours. So when I had some questions raised in Discussion Forums, the response came in the next day.

  5. Programming in PI Web API Online Course: Edit instructional videos

    The videos need to be edited properly (cut the parts where the instructor restarted the phrase to correct a mistake, etc.).

  6. Include opportunities to practice developer technologies in Partner Bootcamp

    The course was good, but it also could have been interesting to have a bit of practice with the development technologies.

  8. web API example calling Transposed Tag data by AF Template

    Often we query by a template name to get a transposed list of attribute values between a nominated date range. The hacked OLEDB SQL code is below.

    Ideally, I'd like to be able to run this as a WEB API Call. Can you provide a WEB API Example of calling transposed data by Template between a nominated date range and then filtering the records that do not meet criteria? In this example, they're not null.

    SELECT eh.Path + eh.Name as Element, ta.[time] as dt, ta.[Tag 1 Name] as Tag1, [Tag 2 Name]as Tag2
    FROM '@AFDatabase'.[Asset].[ElementTemplate] et
    INNER JOIN '@AFDatabase'.[Asset].[Element] e…

  9. Uninstall Internet Explorer from the Training Cloud Environments

    Internet Explorer is an outdated, insecure, unsupported browser that nobody should use. It should be uninstalled from the Training Cloud Environments to help promote best practices.

  10. Separate the "Specialized" groups in learning paths into "Specialized" and "Advanced"

    The "Specialized" group was previously called "Advanced", but neither name accurately describes all courses within the group because some courses would be more appropriately labelled as "Specialized" and others would be more appropriately labelled as "Advanced".

    Please reserve the "Specialized" label for courses about deprecated or uncommon PI programs. i.e.:
    • RtReports (needed only in certain industries)
    • PI ProcessBook (deprecated and needed only by organizations that have not yet migrated away from it)
    • PI Integrator For Business Analytics (cost-effective only for large PI Systems or at the corporate level)

    Any course that is currently in a "Specialized" group…

  11. Remove "NEW - " from the beginning of course descriptions

    All of the courses that have "NEW - " at the beginning of their description are at least 2 years old. Meanwhile, courses that are actually new, such as "Asset Framework: Basics", "Calculations and Asset Analytics", "Event Frames and Notifications", and "PI System Administration: Beyond the Basics", do not use "NEW - " in their descriptions.

    The "NEW - " is meaningless clutter at this point. Please remove it wherever it appears, including when "NEW - " is in another language.

  13. Sell self-paced courses based only on content and not language

    If a user purchases a self-paced course, they should be given access to all language variants of that course.
    .
    .
    This will:

    • allow multilingual users to focus on finding the course with the correct content and not have to worry as much about language

    • eliminate any regret due to a user purchasing a course in a language that they don't know as well, only to realize that a variant exists in a language that they know better; this may be due to poor research or the fact that some courses are hidden, cannot be filtered for, and/or…

  14. Replace the blurry OSIsoft logo

    In the top left corner of OSIsoft Learning, the OSIsoft logo is noticeably blurry. It is blurrier than the OSIsoft logo on OSIsoft's other websites and blurrier than it needs to be to smooth out the edges with anti-aliasing. Please use a sharper version of the logo.

  15. Use "OSIsoft" instead of "OSIsoft Learning" as the Issuing Organization when you add a course to LinkedIn

    On OSIsoft Learning, when you click on your picture in the top right corner and click on "My Profile", you can click on the "Add to profile" button of any completed course to add that course to your LinkedIn profile.

    One effect of this button is that the Issuing Organization is automatically filled in to be "OSIsoft Learning". I feel that this should be changed to "OSIsoft", partly because "OSIsoft Learning" is not a separate organization. More importantly, "OSIsoft Learning" will not show OSIsoft's logo beside the certification on your LinkedIn profile, whereas "OSIsoft" will show OSIsoft's logo. The logo…

  16. Update the "PI System Infrastructure Specialist: Readiness Exam" links

    The "PI System Infrastructure Specialist: Readiness Exam" link is broken wherever it appears, such as on certificate pages or in the error message when you try to register for PI System Installation Accreditation without completing the prerequisites. The latter case and an example of the former case are linked below.
    https://verify.skilljar.com/c/gmx5qav8rw2m
    https://learning.osisoft.com/pi-system-installation-accreditation

    Ideally, please fix the broken link wherever it is used, but if that is not feasible, a redirect to the correct page would be the next best option. I'm guessing that the correct page is the one linked below:

  17. Eliminate redirects in the footer of OSIsoft Learning

    For any link, in the footer of OSIsoft Learning, that starts with https://osisoft.com, replace https://osisoft.com with https://www.osisoft.com to avoid redirects and make the pages load faster.

  18. Drill down from country to city in the Location / Time Zone filter group on the All Content page

    On the All Content page (https://learning.osisoft.com/page/all-content), the Location / Time Zone filter group currently lists 17 cities sorted in alphabetical order of city name. This is difficult to navigate and is akin to sorting numbers starting from their last digit.

    Consider turning this filter group into a hierarchy where you have country on the top level and cities within each country. Ideally, the countries would be expandable to show the city, much like how each filter group is expandable/collapsible. Also, ideally, the countries would also behave like a filter item, allowing all cities within a country to be…

  19. Clarify "One Month" in "Training Cloud Environments (One Month Access)"

    The paid self-paced courses come with 30 days of access to the Training Cloud Environment. Does the "Training Cloud Environments (One Month Access)" (https://learning.osisoft.com/training-cloud-environments-one-month-access) also provide 30 days of access? Or maybe "One Month" means "from the time of purchase up until the day with the same day number next month", in which case the number of days varies but the price doesn't.

    Please clarify what "One Month" means. If it is a fixed number of days; for example, 30; then "One Month" should be replaced with "30-Day".

  20. Provide a link to the playlist in the same language as the course

    At the end of the "About this course" section of the self-paced courses, there is usually a link to the course playlist on YouTube. However, the link always leads to the English playlist regardless of the language of the course.

    In the "About this course" section of all self-paced courses, please provide a link to the playlist of the same course in the same language.
