  1. Quickly add fellow admins for many, many sites

    I administrate many sites. I need a way to quickly add a fellow admin that matches my own view and access.

  2. Allow following articles to see when it is validated or has been updated

    Need to ability to subscribe for updates to the article for when a fix has been found/validated - get notifications on bug status, as well as any available workarounds.
    This is especially important for non-validated articles

  3. Make default site under "Products" tab the primary site configured for the User Account

    EA customers often have a large list of associated sites. For EA customers the primary site they use to view available software is the "EA Virtual Site" which houses all OSIsoft standard software for download in one central place.

    CSMs get tons of requests from customers who cannot find software because they don't know to look under the "EA Virtual Site".

    It would be helpful if we could assign the "EA Virtual Site" as the primary site at the User level within Salesforce....then have this be the default site that shows up when the customer clicks on the "Products" tab.…

  4. The current OSISoft web site is not working with Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 which is the supported

    Good Morning Ali, Thanks for u email. The current OSISoft web site is not working with Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 which is the supported browser in Saudi Aramco. Although we tried FireFox as well as Microsoft Edge. Both also are not supported for u web site. The critical issue is all our licenses downloads are stopped due to issues with your web site support only for Crome. We request any urgent remedy for the same please.
    Thanks and appreciate

  5. Allow PI Connectors to be searched and selected

    Currently, when you choose "Collection" under the Product Family, the list that appears under Product And License is limited. For example, the PI Connector For UFL does not appear and you cannot search for it. This defeats the purpose of the new Customer Portal, since customers have no choice but to exclude the product name and version in these cases.

    If having a full list of PI Connectors would make the page too slow, then at least allow specific PI Connectors to be searched and selected.

  6. Improve general user friendliness

    Sharing input by my customer ElecGas - Pego site (Rita Tavares):

    . the new site is not very user friendly on searching for products to download. It shows a very small window with the information, and it’s not easy to scroll down. And, each time with see anything in detail, on going back, it loses focus and goes to the beginning of everything.
    In fact, the old site, regarding products list and downloads had a much better design, with the possibility of filtering by product or “family”, or by the executables or documents.
    And with the chance to see the…

  7. Eliminate the need to scroll on the sign-in page

    On laptops, the contents of the sign-in page do not fit on the screen, so the user must scroll to see all of it. Please redesign the page so that the content fits on the screen. Shrink or eliminate the picture of the bridge, or send it into the background (e.g. https://login.live.com/).

  8. Attach my site's architecture diagram

    I'd like to be able to attach my site's architecture diagram via the customer portal. This would allow me to avoid having to re-explain my architecture every time I call into Tech Support and speak with a new support engineer.

  9. Order the version numbers

    When you go to create a new case online, you must choose the version number of the program. Please make sure that the versions are always in order. For example, for PI DataLink, the version numbers are listed in descending order, which is fine, but then 2019 was sloppily appended at the bottom of the list, even though it should be at the top.

  10. Make the pop-up screen for uploading the MSF file for license generation larger or include a scroll down button

    When generating a PI license file on the customer portal, a pop-up screen is presented for uploading the MSF file. When the pop-up screen opens it cuts off before you see where to upload the MSF file. Include a scroll function on the side bar so customers can expand the pop-up screen and see where to upload the MSF file or make the pop screen larger.

  11. Streamline changing of roles

    As an admin changing the role for a user requires you to enter into each user and updating the role. Unfortunately phone number and/or other fields such as working times, timezone, etc. typically aren't set and these are required. This means that to simply change permissions the Admin must now enter in all of these fields which is an arduous task, especially if you need to do it for a team of people.

    Rather, when clicking Configure for the user the role is shown in a dropdown that's currently disabled. Being able to update the role here would streamline the…

  12. Remove product family from product search criteria

    The Search in the ‘Product’ Section of the Portal allows customers to search a number of fields including anything in the ‘Custom Name’ field. Thus they can name their servers meaningful names (to them) and be able to find them easily.

    This is a great capability BUT we feel that we have identified a problem.

    One of the fields that seems to get searched is ‘Product Family’. This creates the issue.

    It would seem reasonable, in fact a good idea, for a customer to call a server something like ‘Project X Development Server’. But we use ‘Development’ as a Product…

  13. Time zones for 'Working Hours'

    On Windows PCs, date/time zones are referenced to UTC.
    In the picking list for 'Working Hours' in Add a Team Member (to OSIsoft Customer Portal), the available time zones are referenced to GMT. This seems outdated and should be standardised to UTC.

  14. Possibility to extract cases in csv or Excel-compatible format

    For one entity to manage and follow case creation by its administrators, it could be very useful to add the capability of extracting under .csv or other Excel-compatible format the Case database at anytime (by adding a button "Extract all Cases" for instance).
    There could be a standard Extraction configuration (case number, title, dates of opening/closure, status, people involved, etc.) and one with specific settings.

  15. Customer Portal Feedback

    I am using the products page on the Customer Portal and I believe that some changes should be made, regarding the display of release dates and version numbers directly from the download UI, as I feel that this is a necessary column to include, and I don't understand why it's not shown immediately. I believe that better sorting of product downloads by chronological release when displaying "All Versions" would be an important enhancement. I notice that some products have their full version numbers listed, while others have their - more common - version year listed. I believe that this should…

  16. Make it easy to find updated security patches to OSISoft Products

    As a PI Administrator for a power company I am asked twice a month to verify that none of the products I support have had a security patch released.  Any such products in a NERC zone need to be patched within the next 12 days.

    It used to be fairly easy to look at updates to all PI Client tools to find released security patches.  So far I haven't been able to find out if any have been patched.  This would also include interfaces which are prone to being run in a NERC environment.

  17. Group Developers Club users into a single group

    In the software download area I see my various PI Servers but there is also a large list of PI Developers Club licenses. As with all the products associated with each PI Server, I would like to roll all Developers Club licenses into a single category which could be expanded should the need arise.

  18. Allow users to browse >2 pages of cases to view older cases

    Currently, I can see only 2 pages of closed cases and I cannot see any of the cases that I started before 2017. I deleted the case emails long ago on the assumption that the communications would always still be available online, which they are not anymore.

  19. Change "CaseDetail" to "Case Detail" in the title of case pages

    When you click on a case, the title of the web page, as shown in the browser tab, is "CaseDetail". This should be "Case Detail".
