  1. 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

  2. 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'.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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…

  9. Automatically Generate System Curves in Infoworks WS Pro

  10. 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.

  11. Initial Tank Levels

    It would be great to be able to change the initial tank levels without having to create a whole new tank data set or putting a duplicate tank in the current data set. That way, the initial tank level condition can be changed for any given scenario without having to worry about changes in tank geometry across all scenarios. I believe WaterGEMS allows you to do this so it would be great to see this functionality in InfoWater. Perhaps initial tank levels could be placed under the Initial Node Status controls?

  12. 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).

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  18. 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.
