  1. 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…

  2. 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

  3. Be able to change the background colour

    In InfoWorks the background colour for the GeoPlan is white - it would be beneficial to change this colour to the users choice to make particular features stand-out more clearly in the GeoPlan view

  4. Add new run groups and move existing runs to these

    I’ve currently got one very big run group which should’ve really been split into several different ones.
    Is there a way to move around runs? In the explorer there’s only really the option to duplicate.

  5. Boundary trace toolbar shortcut

    I often use the boundary trace tool to understand the extent of a DMA/PMA. Currently, we have to go to Geoplan -> Tracing Tools -> Boundary Trace, and it would be a lot easier if it was available as a toolbar shortcut.

  6. 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?

  7. water age - representing re-chlorination station by resetting age to 0 hrs

    Depending on the size of the distribution/reticulation system water is often chlorination at the WTP and re-chlorinated at various locations within the network.

    There is no way to reset the water age value at a reservoir or node etc. to represent a re-chlorination station. This makes it difficult to get an idea of the age of water in the reticulation since passing the last re-chlorination station.

    Can this feature be added to the model?

  8. Time varying initial water age profile

    As a user it would be great to be able to add a time varying initial water age profile for transfer nodes. This would allow us to assess water age within the distribution network without having to combine models.

  9. 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.

  10. Node Name Generation Default

    In WS PRO it would be great to be able to set Node Name Generation format as a default for all networks in a database instead of having to enter it in every time I want to add nodes to a network

    The functionality is already provided with the Digitisation Template in WS Pro. Please confirm what enhancement are you suggesting. Thanks

  11. Smart meters

    Water utilities in Australia are installing smart meters in domestic and other non residential properties. Smart meters generates large data sets at each and every individual properties. Any thoughts to integrate those data in to the distribution network models?

    Demand patterns/direct demands in WS Pro can be updated from Live Data by right-clicking on the demand diagram and selecting Update→From Live Data. Incrementing the number of demand categories within the demand diagram it has proven not to be expensive in terms of computational resources (different to the actual “pattern update” which could take long when performed against a wide spectrum of customers).

  12. Support variable speed in live data

    Variable speed is now an unsupported attribute in live data.

  13. 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

  14. Set Area Codes- InfoWorks WS Pro

    Add an "Exclude Selection List" option to the "set Area Codes" tool in IW WS Pro so that you can exclude selected links from the area code trace.

  15. Improvements to custom DB table fields

    1. Ability to modify the length of custom fields in the DB tables after they have been created. This is particularly a problem when you create a text field, but realize later it is too short. Another option would be to make the default text length 250 characters rather than 20.
    2. Better manager for custom fields. The user should be able to create a field once and choose which information DB tables to add it to. See example at link. https://ibb.co/CbFKnn2

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Add ability to rename datasets, patterns, queries, etc

    1. Allow the "Change ID" tool to rename datasets, patterns, queries, etc.
    2. Make the "Change ID" window wider or resizeable to fit longer IDs.
