    This is a great suggestion and will making analytics support much more better.

    At least changing the client time to the server time (and restarting excel) works for my use case.

    In response to Stephen Kwan, "Hi, What would be your desired behavior?..."
    I assume the behavior is unchanged based on the event frame I generated this evening... I was hoping to allow the user to select en event frame from a list of event frame time periods returned to the PI Datalink using Events Explore.
     
    PI PSE: Server: Central Time and Client is Eastern Time

    PI Datalink

    The creates a real mess... Adding UTC to the event frame is not too bad, but then I have to figure out how to convert the time so I am selecting the correct start and end time for PI Datalink to pull the correct data.
     
    Or I can tell my users to change their client time to match the server time zone... That will go over well...

    The export of displays to a file so that they can be imported to another PI Vision server is planned for a future release.

    In response to Ryan McErlean, "Richard, If the sites are identical and..."
    Our company does not have the luxury of having sites even remotely similar to each other, so the OSISoft tool does not help much... I end up recreating all my displays at the new site. Even if it were easy to use the tool (and it is not), then we still have to find someone with privileges to connect to two Vision databases are the same time.

    I assume most large companies only allow a small number of people to access databases... Even our PI administrators are not allowed this type of access to the necessary databases at multiple facilities. Consultants are not allowed this access, so we are forced to get multiple people involved to migrate displays from one server to another. This significantly delays progress, so an export/import process would work better.

    I agree with peter's comment. There are times when we want to persist and times we do not. Peter's suggestion lets the developer make the decision.

    Selecting multiple attributes and tags plus dragging and dropping tags onto a trend are prerequisites for using PI Vision as an engineering tool. Otherwise, ad-hoc trend is pretty useless. As a developer, I can use "Add Attributes" and "Add PI Tags" from PI System Explorer to fill the gap, but engineers and operators do not have this option.

    We are planning to implement this functionality in PI Vision, however, it has not yet been planned for a specific release. This is a high priority symbol for us based on the overwhelming feedback and we are evaluating where we can place this on the product roadmap.

    In response to Victor Zhang Chenru, "Thanks for your feedback, Rick. We have ..."
    We run into instances where the symbols (trends, tables) scroll when we really want the page to scroll. We have displays where the symbol takes up the full width of the screen and therefore it is difficult to grab the background to scroll. This was so frustrating we abandoned out current effort of using native displays for the phone and created ProcessBook displays just for the phone.

    We are already doing this. We use VMware's AirWatch browser to view native PI Vision displays as well as PI ProcessBook displays imported into PI Vision... The PI ProcessBook displays work better on the phones, but do not look as good as the native displays.
