    Like with any website, you should be able to add the PI Vision mobile page to your home screen on mobile devices, so it will look like and act like an app. Also, the PI Coresight apps were removed in favour of the mobile web pages. After all, PI Coresight and PI Vision won't work without Internet connectivity anyways, so it's OK if they rely on a browser. The mobile web pages also avoid unnecessary installation on your mobile device (thin client versus fat client).

    This happened at one of the OSIsoft classes. It wasn't obvious that the inability to edit the time was due to the window size.

    I disagree with the "per user" part. That seems rather unnecessary.

    Also, you would have to specify which metric units become which imperial units. For example, do we convert ounces to grams or kilograms?

    When would you be mixing tonnes and MWh in the same attribute? Or am I misunderstanding?

    That's actually not a bad idea.

    A community edition would be good for familiarizing yourself with PI and doing hands-on testing and learning without playing around with and potentially messing up the "good" database at work.

    In addition, having PI at home would mean that you can learn PI, its potential, and its inherent limitations without the pressure of work. This, in turn, leads to users envisioning their ideal PI product.

    I fully support this suggestion. It is very easy for people to make a mistake with the units and think that they have a meaningful output. This is especially the case when you use a function like TagTot, whose output unit is the input unit multiplied by the number of days being integrated, and it is easy to forget that TagTot assumes days instead of hours or seconds.

    In response to PatrickCrummie, even if the calculation is empirical, the constants that are used in the empirical calculation would still have a unit. It never makes sense to disregard the unit.

    To add to this, multi-line text boxes would also be useful. Sometimes, the user wants to explicitly start a new line by pressing Enter.

    If word wrap or multi-line text boxes were supported, OSIsoft would have to implement text alignment (left, center, right) for the text boxes as well.
