PI Vision tooltip configuration

The user would like to have control over the tooltip configuration of the PI Vision symbol. For instance, he would like to show the tag of a PI Point data reference when hovering over a single value from an attribute.

    It is very interesting to me that folks cannot see a PI tag name when looking at an AF object. I'm very surprised. We had to purchase additional PI Vision tools to make Vision usable. We used a company called Software Athlete. It is very inexpensive and the offer support for tooltips and showing PI tag names.

    The 2 main reason why this tooltip configuration is needed

    • Ease of use for our customers

    • Timereduction during troubleshooting

    Already 288 votes are on this topic so this means that it's beneficial for a lot of customers!

    More details:

    To be able to check the correct tag configuration in AF for end users it would be a good improvement to be able to see the pi tagname in the tooltip of an AF PItag attribute.

    Because the end user currently does not see the AF configuration of the pi point in pivision, they have to contact backend engineers to get the used tag configuration, which they need to check if the correct tag is used in the pivision screens.

    This creates unnecessary delays in updates and corrections of displays and assets and offcourse extra request to the backend engineer.

    I'd like to use tooltips to provide information about the tagname of a PI Point present behind the AF attribute

    Having the tag name avaliable would allow me to look at the P&ID and DCS for the affected system and act on off aim conditions faster.

    In addition to Abigail's comments, the tool tip is essential for efficiency in troubleshooting. E.g. An operator reports that certain values are not updating on a dashboard. These issues are reported to tech support. The first question is always "What is the tag name or tag names that aren't updating?" IP21 has the feature on their portal displays that when you hover over an indicator by default the tool tip indicates the specific tag number. The tool tip can be overwritten, but this is the default setting. The lack of this feature is the #1 complaint of new OSI PI Dashboard users at our site.

    The ability to customize the tooltip (i.e. to show the instrumenttag field) or similar, would be a significant improvement in our ability to integrate the use of Pi vision with other systems (maintenance databases, P&IDs, DCS, etc.) that continue to use instrument tag names.

    Tooltip Statistics was one of my most-used features in Pi ProcessBook. I find it very difficult to use Pi Vision without the option to display additional information about a tag by hovering over it, in particular the name/description which saves a lot of time when unfamiliar with a display.

    In my experience, it is something that has been requested several times. I believe this should be something easy to implement and very useful.

    My suggestion, Instead of involving the tag name or tag descriptor from the DA to an Attribute in AF, an easier way to implement it would be to add to the current visibility label options the AttributeConfigString (only for Attributes which have a PI Point as data reference), simultaneously being able to combine it with the Element Name,Attribute Name or the Attribute description.

    For pharma , we need to qualify every components. Of course AF , is part of OSIsoft software. Some customers asked us to confirm the tag name associated with attribute when they use PI Vision through AF structure.In this way , management can use AF structure only, and instrumentation people in dragging over the AF attribute the can see the tag name ( useful for them for troubleshooting ) . The best will be to have AF attribute description follow by | and tag name

    I'd like to use tooltips to provide information about warnings on the screen. For example, the status of a machine reliability indicator is currently red. I'd like to have tooltips to guide the operator on what are the possible causes and common actions needed to revert that scenario.

    A tooltip could be an improvement, allowing to see the tagname and enabling a copy and paste text function. This could allow to work and integrate with PI Universe more simply.

    It would also be useful to have the option of disabling the tooltip for each symbol

    This feature is very important for us as well. We are using PI Vision alongside our control system and it is vital that we can scroll over/use the tool tip to see the PI tag name so the control room operator can reference this in the control system before taking action.

    The abiity to show the raw PI point name for PI Point AF attributes within PI Vision is a very important feature for us.

    My idea would be tooltip configurable with options for most attribute columns (that are available in PSE) including description plus a look-through to PI Point as well if its an indirect reference. Also the value of another related attribute where there may be some contextual supporting information.

    In PI Vision you have the ability to search for Data Archive tags or attributes which is useful. However, if a user is building a display using a list of attributes they cannot easily verify which tag is actually referenced "under the hood" using PI Vision. It would be nice if when hovering over an attribute in PI Vision that the actual tagname would be displayed that is being referenced by the attribute. This would reduce confusion for end users who are very familiar with tag names or are trying to ensure they are selecting the correct attributes, especially while they are becoming familiar with the structure.
