  1. Improve "update from live data" performance

    big models with many live data points connected to control takes a long time to update.

  2. roll back commit history

    We can see what the commit history is, but if you made a mistake and committed it there's no way to go back without making a new branch.

    Would be good to be able to roll back changes to a selected point in the commit history so your mistake isn't locked in for eternity.

    Would also facilitate trialing solutions without cluttering up commit history with garbage.

  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. 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.

  5. 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.

    To be clear, changes to the parent can cascade to all child scenarios as long as the same data set is used.

    To inheret changes where datasets are different would introduce complexity and room for error in model management.


    This seems to be specifically a request for a new parent-child relationship among data sets which could exist parallel and independent of the scenario relationships. This way a child scenario could use a child dataset that varies at certain nodes, but still inherets changes from the parent as long as they're still matching - the same way that InfoWorks software handles scenarios. I see large benefits of this approach but it could certain confuse many modelers.


    This is valuable feedback as we discuss model data management in the cloud. Thank you.

  6. 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

  7. 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).
