  1. Add Max/Min HL/1000 Results

    Can't currently map Max HL/1000. This would be more efficient/useful in some cases than mapping Max HL (feet). If your model has many segments, it is possible that very high head loss areas will not be flagged if only the HL is available.

  2. in IWPro to have a symbol for easy indication of UPC attached to an asset

    It can be difficult to tell if UPC is attached to a pump without checking every time. It would be very helpful to have a way to show UPC, such as similar to live data.

    This will be provided with WS Pro 2021.5 (target release date April 2021)

  3. Link to Examples

    Do you have an expounded example of each InfoWater Allocation Method with examples? It will help if a link is established to get directed to that documentation. For example; can you help me get directed to an example Closest Junction allocation method?

  4. elevation

    When inserting a new junction in an existing pipe, InfoWater Pro interpolates the elevation data between the two existing nodes to come up with a default elevation estimate. A useful setting option would prevent this from happening, and instead default to a 0.00 elevation.

  5. Add a button or function key to re-run the last model run

    This would speed up the process of model calibration, where I would be adjusting a pipe roughness, PRV or PS control and run the model after each adjustment. Instead of opening the run schedule and clicking run and then ok, a run button or function key would speed this up.

    right-click on the run and re-run → the software is going to ask you if you want to use the latest network/control.

  6. Default 'Start Time' for testing feed Time Range in Live Data Feed

    Currently in Test Feed window of Live Data Feed both 'Start Time' and 'End Time' default to now. It would be better if the 'Start Time' as in the past (e.g. today minus one day). That way when connect to live data from Pi or Scada some output would be produced. At the moment with the current defaults the user always have to modify the 'Start Time'.

  7. Allow Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V in InfoWater Pro

    I could always copy and paste attributes via simple keyboard commands (Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V) in classic InfoWater, but can no longer do that in InfoWater Pro. You can right click and select "Copy" or "Paste", but that takes longer. Bring back keyboard commands.

  8. use of custom buttons over multiple models

    At this time the custom action buttons are only relevant to the database. As a user who has a number of SQL toolboxes which I use across multiple models it would be highly beneficial if these custom action buttons could be set up in the software so they were applicable to all models opened

    SQL can now be exported to IWQ files (binary formats). Those can then be stored in the factory SQL library directory and then used across multiple master databases. Functionality available from WS Pro 2021.5, target release date April 2021.

  9. Run MSX in IWLive

    There is massive interest in having a water quality model that shows pH, Nitrification, chlorine levels, age, and tracing in real time. Currently this is only possible for water age (the basic EPANET WQ does not allow for the source tracing and quality modeling we need).

    Would be really nice to do these with IWLive with shorter duration Server runs (using the proceeding projection), as opposed to having to do 20 day runs in IWLive, export to InfoWater, then setup MSX there and run for another 20 days.

  10. Combine simple and rule-based controls dialogs

    It is currently difficult to identify if a facility has a rule-based control. An improvement would be to access all the controls for a facility through the existing controls button. Clicking the controls button would open a single window with a tab for simple controls and a tab for logical controls.

    New Control Overview functionality provided with InfoWater Pro 3.5 Update 2. Target release date April 2021.

  11. Default MapXtreme setting

    As a user of InfoWorks WS Pro, I would like that MapXtreme was the default setting for the background management. I mean, in the the software download page it's called "InfoWorks WS Pro with MapXtreme", so it would be quite obvious that MapXtreme is the default setting... (Besides, in "InfoWorks ICM with MapXtreme", MapXtreme IS the default setting!)

  12. Multi-species water quality

    As a user I want to be able to handle multi-solute water quality defining my own set of equations (same as EPANET MSX)

  13. Have an indicator of the date/time of last successful model run

    Add a date/time stamp for the last successful model run somewhere in the run manager window would be helpful. Once a run has been completed, it is possible for a user to make changes to the model which would affect the hydraulics, yet the stoplight still shows green/yellow. It's possible for a user to THINK they have completed a run with the latest changes despite their not being incorporated.

  14. clearer ArcGIS version info

    Would be good to see clearer version info on innovyze.force.com...
    The old site innovyze.com/updates was better viz "for ArcGIS 10.3-10.7"

  15. Live data

    Like in ICM, if we can directly import data received from field tests or downloaded data using CSV or some other formats that will save lot of time in processing/creating into text formats.

  16. Trace an isolation to a 2-valve shut down

    Denver Water has a massive outage program that runs a minimum of 6 months per year. All outages are modeled. For nearly all outages, 2 valves are shut down for safety. Having the isolation trace in IWLive contain an option to trace to the 2nd valve would be really useful and make this process significantly easier!

  17. Enhance the performance of domains in InfoWater Pro

    There is no reason an ArcGIS selection should work 5-50x faster than using domain tools in InfoWater. ArcGIS made great enhancements to ArcGIS Pro and utilizing a 64-bit environment. InfoWater could be much improved from a performance perspective

    This is an issue that laisse inside ArcGIS Pro where moving the information of large maps and layers between threads may take some time. This has negatively impacted the InfoWater Pro performance, where simple tasks like enlarging domains or switching scenarios could take up to several minutes where the same task would have been performed in a matter of seconds on regular InfoWater. The Development Team identified a workaround to the issue with the introduction of the “Conditioned Table-Join” in InfoWater Pro 3.0.

    Testing has proven significant performance which also scales up nicely for the large networks and it does not affect performance when dealing will smaller systems. Nothing changes for the end-user but performance increases ranges between 60 to 80% depending on model size.

  18. I would like to symbolize fire flow results using the Map Display feature.

    It would be really helpful to visualize fire flow results such as Hydrant Available Flow in formats such as contours or changing the symbology of junctions. This provides a quick visual of the system and deficient areas or where boundary conditions may be interfering with results.

  19. Save complete configurations of ODIC / ODEC to run in batches

    The Open Data Import/Export Centres have lots of functionality, but importing say 10 different files can be somewhat tedious and repetitive. Ths config files save the field mapping. Thinking of the way In InfoWater I can have all settings for multiple exchange configs and run them all at once.

    You can save the config file and then have a script to butch run the ODIC. Reach out if you need support for the script.

  20. Hi Innovyze, I would like to request in the InfoWater Designer add-on group limits(only currently set to 100) similar to InfoSWMM limit .

    The current InfoWater add-on Designer has limit of 100 groups that can be assigned to the model pipes, pumps and tanks.

    I have recently found from a colleague that the InfoSWMM add-on Designer has unlimited groups for pipe and other variables.

    I do hope Innovyze can assist to have this capacity for InfoWater improved similar to InfoSWMM.

    Kind regards

    Romer
