PI ProcessBook 3.1: Notifications, Annotations and U(I)
PI ProcessBook 3.1 shows your subscribed Notifications in a docked window. You can click on a Notification to 1) set the display time context from the selected Notification, 2) acknowledge a Notification or 3) open any ProcessBook displays associated with a Notification. The new details pane allows users to see and annotate data in dynamic symbols, to view point attribute information, and to export PI data to Excel or the clipboard. New to trending in this version of ProcessBook are vertical trends where time is on the vertical axis. On all trends, individual traces can be hidden or shown. Linear regressions and trend statistics via tooltips are now provided. The ProcessBook look and feel has been updated to match with today’s most common Microsoft desktop software: Windows XP and Office 2003. Significant user interface enhancements have been made to formatting symbols to improve ease of creating and editing displays, including a new formatting toolbar and a format painter function. Several dialogs have also been redesigned.
