  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Multi-fireflow in WS Pro

    Currently, the available built-in fireflow options in WS Pro run for individual nodes/hydrants as if no hydrant in the system is open. Adding the ability to run multiple hydrants that are opened simultaneously will be very useful.

  6. Allow the InfoWater Pro "Live Data Adapter" to use non-live data

    The Live Data Adapter can be a powerful tool for calibrating models, but is difficult to set up. Many times, you don't have permission to connect to the SCADA historian database. Right now, it only supports ClearSCADA, PI, SQL Server, and Oracle, formats which require familiarity with these databases. If the tool could connect to Excel, CSV, or Access DB files, it would be more flexible and useful to all users.

    Alternatively, update the "Real-Time Data Connection" feature (Command Center>Edit) to allow for gap analysis.

  7. display multiple scenario results on long section picks

    For long section picks on model runs showing the hydraulic gradients etc. it would be useful when carrying out scenario work to be able to display more than one set of run results - currently have to export to excel.

  8. Can you include scenarios in WS Pro environment similar to ICM

    ICM has the capability of the scenario modelling within the single network. H2Omap also had the same capability. Any possibility of having the same capability in WS pro?

  9. Multiple control options

    Assets with controls (Pumps, PRVs etc.) should have multiple control options.

    So Control 1 could be a control regime applicable to model calibration.

    Control 2 could be control relevant to a General Applications model,

    Controls 3, 4, 5 etc could be used for modelling specific scenarios for analyses.

    A tick box would enable (and disable) which control is used in the model run.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. inlet riser option for tank

    Have an option to specify an Inlet Riser Pipe for the tank element. This would hold the fill head at a constant, set at the riser pipe elevation, but allow the tank discharge head vary with the tank level.

  15. As a user, I would like an automated method to allocate demands from meter points through lateral polyline to pipelines.

    I need a way to allocate demand from a meter (point meter) to the pipe (polyline) based on the lateral connection (polyline) at end points.

    Keep in mind:
    The features might not snap nor connect to pipes

  16. Add zoom to and map navigation ability in the report tables for InfoWater Pro

    I use both Bentley and Innovyze water modeling software and i have noticed that the Bentley software allows you to zoom to elements from the report tables and allows you to pan, click, review properties, etc. while the report table is open. It would be really nice if Innovyze could include a zoom to feature in the report tables (similar to what is already included in the DB editor), and allow the user to pan around in the map and click on elements while the report table is open.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
