  3. More characters for flags

    Having a 2 character flag limit in WS pro can be a bit limiting especially as other packages have more characters (ICM has 3 etc.)

  4. Sort selection sets/ re-order them

    Would be very useful if you could either sort selection set orders or move selections up or down the list. This would make it much faster to find the selection set you want in a large list (e.g. DMA selection sets in alphabetical order)

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. I would like to add multiple rows simultaneously to the Multi-Species Node Initial Quality window.

    Currently, the Multi-Species Node Initial Quality window only allows inserting or appending a single row at a time. I would like to add thousands of rows at once. The MSX tables could either be added to the DB Editor, or at least add a "Add Multiple Rows" option to the Multi-Species Node Initial Quality window, allowing the user to specify the number of rows to be added (such as 10,000 rows).

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. InfoWater for QGIS

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

  11. Option to display in the same time assignments of properties to nodes and to pipes

    Add an option to map to display in the same time assignments of properties to nodes and to pipes. At the moment it is not possible as the 'Customer Point Demand Assignment' option is a radio button.

  12. As a user of InfoWorks WS PRO, I would like to better simulate FMV valves

    In InfoWorks WS PRO is possible to simulate FMV valves, but I would like to introduce a "deviation" option to better simulate it.
    I give an example: imagine a valve whose pressure setting is 2 Bar if flow is from 0 to 10 L/s, and 2.5 Bar if flow is from 10 to 20 L/s. I would like to introduce the possibility to add a "flow deviation" parameter to avoid unexpected opening/closing when flow is close to 10 L/s. For example, we could set deviation at 0.5 L/s, so that pressure will remain 2 bar up to 10.5 L/s when…

  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. As a user, I would like to automate importing network from any external software (Synergi, Epanet, Aquis etc,) in model group

    To complete the initial model set up with Exchange tool, it will be great if importing external software is also automated, as this will enable us do the complete set up in one go without opening the model.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. A simple way to get an upstream or downstream trace analysis for all objects (node or pipe)

    In WS Pro
    Upstream/downstream tracing is easy for a single object.
    Obtaining a single useful value (i.e. property count) is easy for multiple objects.

    Combining the two is very difficult at the moment in WS Pro

    I want to be able to obtain, either for all objects or a selection, the value of data x upstream or downstream.

    For example: length of mains upstream, no of properties downstream

    This would be a really powerful risk assessment tool but also useful for quick operational analysis.

  20. 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.
