  1. Push Changes From Parent to Child(ren) Scenarios

    Allow changes made in a parent scenario to push through and update all child scenarios unless that link is broken in the child scenario(s).

    This goes along with the improvement suggestion titled "Data Sets" by Kathryn Carreira. The Scenario and Data Sets organization needs to be improved in InfoWater Pro as other software already excels in this area. Right now if something changes in one scenario it has to be manually updated in all child scenarios, this becomes exponentially time consuming with larges model and multiple scenarios.

  2. Evaluate Fireflow Minimum Pressure by Zone

    In the drop down menu for the Critical Node Search Range, please add the option to evaluate minimum pressure based on the same zone. Or add an option to consider multiple search areas where the user can select either the entire system and/or by zone and input the minimum pressure for both search areas.

    To be frank, this is a non-issue with the Bentley software. The user sets the zone or system as the critical node search area, then sets the desired minimum pressure(s). The FF results list the limiting nodes based on the selected parameter, but will report pressures…

  3. Improve Table Joins and Symbology

    Having the option to join all layer tables is great, but it's painfully slow. Other software that are add-ins to ArcGIS Pro do more or less the same thing, but update/run in a fraction of the time. Could the table join or database format be improved so it does not take so much time to refresh?

    Also, instead of having to join all layer tables to utilize ArcGIS Pro's built-in symbology OR only use InfoWater Pros Map Display could they be used universally or in tandem? It would be nice to seamlessly use both symbology tools and have them display…

  4. Initial Status Setting Saved to Model Preferences

    Currently the "Show Pipe, Pump and Valve Initial Status" under the Display Settings tab in the model Preferences window will not stay checked after you save, close, and reopen the model. Please have this option/setting maintain the last setting when the model is reopened.

  5. Batch Edit Datasets

    Currently if there needs to be a global change to a dataset, the only way is to manually go through each dataset and change the element property and save. As an example, if a valve needs to be closed in multiple datasets, it would be nice to have a tool to allow that change happen to all desired datasets at one time.

    This feedback also goes along with the previous posted feedback title: "Data Sets" by Kathryn Carreira and "Push Changes From Parent to Child(ren) Scenarios" by Joe Lawrence.

  6. Allow the InfoWater Pro "Live Data Adapter" to Batch Import Sensor

    When user has a lot of sensors they need to add to the Live Data Adapter, it is really hard to add one by one. We need a way to batch import the sensor using some kind of csv file.

  7. Make InfoWater windows and dialog boxes resizable

    Many windows in InfoWater/InfoWater Pro are not resizable, making it difficult to see long values.

  8. InfoWater Pro report manager bug

    In the InfoWater Pro (v3.5, update #3) report manager, the "Remove All" button only removes some of the reports.

  9. Export InfoSurge results for external application

    InfoWater can use the option to "Export simulation results for external application" to export selected results to DBF files. It would be nice to have this work for InfoSurge.

  10. Making a run in WS/WSpro now a (big) list of yellow warnings pop up. By using an optional selection of (run)validation items not anymore

    Making a run in WS/WSpro the input always gets fully validated including items not used. Those items creates a (big) list (e.g. 81.273) of yellow warnings. Besides run/validation time causes this a list of not wanted necessary warnings which makes it's possible to miss the real important warnings. It would be nicer to switch on/of default validation options in the Tab Tools/options/"used validation items"
    The possibility of the "engineering validation" group is not the solution.

  11. Allow Customized Reports to Also Include Standard and Fireflow Results - Just Have One Result Table

    Currently all model element information and results are separated between the DB Editor, Customizable Report, and Output Report/Graph. This is confusing and hard to export specific information together without having to combine it later in Excel or GIS. The main frustration is that the “Standard” or “Design Fireflow” in the Output Report/Graph results are completely separate from other information related to the model elements. As an example, it would be nice to export all fire flow results for junctions alongside any custom fields made in the DB Editor for easy referencing.
    In short, instead of having three types of tables…

  12. Populate Pump run schedule based on telemetry data in WS Pro

    As a planning modeler calibrating within WS Pro, I want to use the "Load from Live Data" tool on pumps in Plan mode to populate the Control Data timeseries profile based on a data stream of 1's and 0's indicating on/off.
    While this is already available in IWLive for realtime modeling, I want to leverage it for streamlined model calibration and analysis of historic events within WS Pro.

  13. Further "Set Area Codes" functionality - InfoWorks WS Pro

    2 feature requests for consideration, both relating to the “set area codes” functionality in InfoWorks WS Pro:
    1. The ability to save the “set area code” configuration, whether that be in a model tree group or as a cfg file, so that you don’t have to reset all preferences every time you open the tool
    2. A “pause area code identification” button so that you can make multiple changes to assets without having to wait for the area codes to recalculate after every minor change (and without having to close the set area code window to prevent the recalculation, which…

  14. Data Sets

    It would be very helpful if, for any data set that is created by creating a clone of another data set, you could keep track of that. Perhaps a visually branched system of data sets to see if any of the sets were created based on another set. That is how WaterGEMS shows their data sets (aka alternatives). Or some other way of keeping track of which data sets were cloned, with options for recording when it was cloned and a more in-depth description/reasoning.

  16. 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…

  17. Allow InfoWater to export simulation results in CSV format instead of DBF

    The option to "Export simulation results for external application" in InfoWater would be more useful if the results were exported as CSV files instead of DBF files. We regularly need to compare the results from multiple model scenarios. Microsoft PowerBI or Excel PowerQuery are great tools for importing and comparing large amounts of data and could streamline this process significantly. However, neither support importing directly from DBF files.

  18. Persistent Graphs in InfoWater/InfoWater Pro

    Stored graphs aren't that great. Why not just make graphs persistent? This is one area where competitors blow away InfoWater and InfoWater Pro. No contest.

  19. 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.
