  1. New Feature is Active in All Scenarios Option (InfoWater/Pro)

    Add a tools/options option so when you add new features they will be active in all scenarios, instead of getting errors 100 times for every scenario you try to run where the features were not included originally. This would be especially useful when using Intelliselection.

  2. I would like more informative error messages when trying to Change an ID

    I tried to change the ID for a pump, but I overlooked the “Target Element Type” dropdown, which was automatically set to junction.

    It took me a while to realize my mistake. It might be helpful to other users if the error messages/warnings (see below) were a bit more informative… I’d suggest something like “WARNING: Junction ID ‘P1240’ does not exist.” I think this would have helped me realize my error much sooner.

    WARNING: unable to change Junction ID from 'P1240' to 'P1241'.
    MESSAGE: no Junction ID was changed.

  3. InfoWater for QGIS

    ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro are expensive and slow. QGIS is free and fast.

  4. Edit Pump and Valve Curves in IWLive

    IWLive is the perfect platform to examine how well valve and pump curves are simulating the actual behavior under a wide range of system conditions. If these could be modified in an incident run, it would save lots of time going back to WS to modify them.

  5. Specify number of demands

    I almost never need to use all 10 demand fields in InfoWater. The ability to specify the number of demand fields needed would save space in the demand DB table and in the Model Explorer window and make viewing these windows easier.

  6. Reset the active facilities query without changing scenarios

    When scenarios use a query set to define the active facilities, it would be useful to be able to re-run the query and update the active/inactive facilities without changing scenarios. Changing scenarios can be very slow for large models.

  8. Access to UDF Data through DB Editor

    In InfoWater Pro, the model data can be accessed through the DB Editor. The UDF tool does not have any access to the database tables through the DB Editor. It would be very helpful if I could gain access to the UDF tables through the DB Editor, even if it were just under the Advanced Application Data (for Advanced Users), which most users should not use. I ended up having to use a different application to gain access to the DB tables.

  9. I want more flexible shutdown runs

    e.g.: I want to be able to evaluate shutdwon of pumping stations in 1 one run, now I have to create a seperate run for each pumping station. A workaround I use is closing links with a GRM config, but this only shuts down links for the whole simulation.

  10. Default Symbol and Map Display

    Please allow the option to choose the default symbol (InfoWater Model Preferences) and Map Display symbol from the "Styles" built into ArcGIS Pro. Both ESRI and my company have custom .stylx files that house our custom symbols for points, polylines, and polygons. Having the option to chose the default style from these pre-populated styles would be fantastic. Currently, the options to change the symbol feel like it limits the modeler to changing either the color or the size.

    To see where these styles live in ArcGIS Pro, head to the View tab, click on Catalog Pane, then drop down the…

  11. Provide a Standard Warehouse of new assets

    Allow the company that is running the software to define a standard warehouse of new assets so the modellers using it know the assets they are adding have the settings (diameters) of the actual assets or pipes that particular company uses.

  12. InfoWater: Report volume stored in tanks

    I can calculate volume from level, but it's an extra step and requires that I copy the run results out to Excel. It's even more difficult if I have a non-circular tank. Please include tank volume in the tank results and in the "System Demand" report.

  13. allow multiple selection lists in a shutdown simulation

    I am currently working on a long-term planning of our pipeline renovation projects. I need to determine which projects can be executed simultaneously. My approach at this time is to create a selection list of all the pipes that would be taken out of order for the different projects I would like to combine. Each new combination of projects requires me to create a new selection list and reselect all the pipes affected by these projects.

    It would be easier for me if I could create separate selection lists for the affected pipes for each individual project, and then select…

  14. Smarter UDF Flush Sequence Manager Operations tab selection tools

    When using the UDF Flush Sequence Manager Operations tab [Close >], [Open >], or [Remove >] selection tools, I would like to receive the error "WARNING: Node ### is not in the Selection Set 'VALVES'" less often.

    Currently you must zoom in and only select the node you wish to change the state of; any other nodes included in the selection that are not in the relevant selection set will cause this error to pop up.

    When using [Close >], the tool should only recognize valves whose current state is set to Open, and should close all selected valves, ignoring…

  15. InfoWater SA to be capable of managing transparency in the background layers

    Not having the capability in InfoWater SA to manage background information as used to be possible with H2OMap affect directly the efficiency of the product itself.

  16. Option of splitting pipes/Polygons in InfoWorks WS Pro

    Like the option available to split the polygons, if there is an option available that would be good.

    If we are able to automatically split the pipe into many segments automatically using an automated option like the feature available in ICM to generate river cross sections, that would be helpful especially where we have long sections of pipes where it would be difficult to replicate ground level variations.

  17. Split pipes using the InfoWater "Digitize Network" tool

    The "Digitize Network" tool can be used to draw new pipes and junctions, but does not split existing pipes, even though you can snap to existing pipes and add a junction. This can cause confusion because it appears that the pipe has been split when it actually has not.
