  1. 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.

  3. Include an "excluded search nodes" warning in fireflow output table

    When the design pressure exceeds the static pressure at a particular node, that node will be excluded from a design fireflow model run. The output table should include a banner at the top listing the excluded nodes, as these can make a big difference in available flows and can easily be overlooked. Currently, this event is only described in the .RPT file (shown as "Summary of Excluded Search Nodes: due to static pressure < design pressure").

  4. Max or Min Flow values should not depend on the pipe direction. i.e. the value being positive or negative depend on the pipe direction

    Currently, if the flow direction through the pipe is opposite to the direction of the pipe drawn it shows as a negative flow value. So if the flow goes both direction during the run, smaller positive value shows as the maximum flow and larger negative value shows as the minimum flow. This is wrong.

  5. Modify How InfoSurge Counts Features for Licensing

    We have 20,000-pipe InfoSurge licenses. We frequently have operational models larger than that, where we want to perform Surge modeling. Even if we deactivate portions of the network, InfoSurge still counts the total number of features. This wastes time deleting features to make a new model that is then possibly diverging from the original.

  6. Create a ground model using LIDAR data in a .tif format

    LIDAR data is now typically stored in a .tif format as opposed to .asc, and so it would be useful to be able to create a ground model in Infoworks WS Pro using .tif data.

  7. Addition of Calendar function to DemandWatch Pro

    The current DemandWatch Pro doesn't have any functionality to set national holidays, even though water consumption should change on holidays greatly. Some national holidays are different yearly, so it will be great if we can define national holidays in some ways in DemandWatch Pro.

  8. Display Warnings when Tank Stage/Volume Curve Inconsistent with Levels

    As far as I can tell this is an EPANET bug, but say your tank levels are set to minimum 4 and maximum 20. If you have a stage/volume curve that goes below 4, your tank will supply water forever from a level of 4 feet.

  9. Simple Criticality Assessment Manager reporting in InfoWater Pro

    I want a simple report for each pounded area between valves, reporting the length of pipe affected, number of customers, number of critical customers, amount of demand taken offline by isolation, and possibly the total volume of demand lost between a specified time range.

  10. Statistics in Demand Field Suming

    I notice that the software seems to sum the individual demands in the DB editor with their rounded values. This caused a significant discrepancy when summing the demands in the individual pressure zones but they didn't add up the to total system demand shown in the run report. It seems like the summation in the DB editor should not be rounding the individual demands and then doing a sum, but rather using the true demands (to the decimal place they was loaded) and then doing a sum and rounding that overall sum.

  11. Consistency in Plots Titles for Simulation and Live Data Plot Reports

    Consistency in Plots Titles for Simulation and Live Data Plot Reports

    In Graph tool plot title include ‘Asset ID’ and ‘Node ID’ e.g. “Hausegill SR (Reservoir: 004T4011)”. However in the Simulation report in only shows ‘Node ID ‘ e.g. ”004T4011”
    Could it be made consistent and for the Simulation report to include both ‘Asset ID’ and ‘Node ID’ so plot titles are the same across different graphs components.

  12. Allow decimals in number of properties assigned to customer points

    When setting up future demand scenarios we are often provided increase in population over an existing area of the network, reflecting infill growth across the area. However we can't distribute this across existing customer points because only a whole number of properties can be assigned to each customer point.

    Demand scaling could be used for this but has a number of drawbacks:
    - To use demand scaling we need to change the area code to reflect development areas, which means we can't use area codes to analyse DMAs.
    - It also means the demand statistics for a network does not…

  13. CAM Enhancement

    CAM Enhancements

    A few things to consider that I think would make your tool better than others I have seen/used:

    1. The ability to export the pounded areas into GIS. It seems to me this shouldn’t be difficult as you are color coding them now in your software
    2. The ability to export the other results to GIS like closed elements, isolated junctions, etc… into GIS.
    3. The ability to identify the number of customers (i.e. meters) and the number of critical customers (i.e. meters) isolated for each pounded area. This would require a GIS point layer with meters associated with pipes and…

  14. Extend flexibility in displaying information associated to HGL profiles

    As an InfoWater user I'd like to be able to add more information to my HGL profile, including nodal pressure, pipe diameter, flow, velocity, etc. I'd like see max/min level achieved throughout the simulation and have the ability to quickly add pipes to profile

  15. Head Units

    In WS Pro it would be useful to be able to set the units for head in m AD. This used to be an option in WS. It can be confusing for people starting in or not familiar with modelling to differentiate between pressure and head and having this option would really help.

  16. I want to be able to see what connected Agents are doing and trouble shoot connections from within WS Pro

    A command centre program for WS Pro/IWLive runs which shows connected agents and marshallers and all the runs in a simulation workgroup in one place.
    Better simulation workgroup diagnostics.

    I am trying to trouble shoot remote VPN issues and the IT guys don't understand what WS Pro is doing and Innovyze think it is VPN/firewall issues. Very hard to resolve as the issue is hard (impossible) to diagnose from within the software. The Marshaller can see all the remote agents, but is unable to send a sim to them over VPN. This worked fine when we were all onsite but…

  17. A simple way to straighten short links to display symbols more clearly

    When using the "Expand Short Links" option I find that the expanded links will inherit some geometric points from the adjacent links, and hence symbols for valves, meters etc may not display too well if adjacent to a pipe bend. It would be useful to have a function to delete all bends from a selected group of links, so as to straighten the links out to enable symbols to be displayed more clearly.

  18. Hyperlinks to specific pages within a document, not just the file/folder

    When adding hyperlinks to features within the properties, enable the ability to link to a specific page within the document itself rather than just opening the document on the first page or folder.

  19. Allow copying of model object Sub-themes to Theme objects in the db tree
