  1. Initial Status Setting Saved to Model Preferences

    Currently the "Show Pipe, Pump and Valve Initial Status" under the Display Settings tab in the model Preferences window will not stay checked after you save, close, and reopen the model. Please have this option/setting maintain the last setting when the model is reopened.

  2. 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.

  3. Allow Customized Reports to Also Include Standard and Fireflow Results - Just Have One Result Table

    Currently all model element information and results are separated between the DB Editor, Customizable Report, and Output Report/Graph. This is confusing and hard to export specific information together without having to combine it later in Excel or GIS. The main frustration is that the “Standard” or “Design Fireflow” in the Output Report/Graph results are completely separate from other information related to the model elements. As an example, it would be nice to export all fire flow results for junctions alongside any custom fields made in the DB Editor for easy referencing.
    In short, instead of having three types of tables…

  4. Further "Set Area Codes" functionality - InfoWorks WS Pro

    2 feature requests for consideration, both relating to the “set area codes” functionality in InfoWorks WS Pro:
    1. The ability to save the “set area code” configuration, whether that be in a model tree group or as a cfg file, so that you don’t have to reset all preferences every time you open the tool
    2. A “pause area code identification” button so that you can make multiple changes to assets without having to wait for the area codes to recalculate after every minor change (and without having to close the set area code window to prevent the recalculation, which…

  5. Make InfoWater windows and dialog boxes resizable

    Many windows in InfoWater/InfoWater Pro are not resizable, making it difficult to see long values.

  7. 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…

  8. Default Symbol and Map Display

    Please allow the option to choose the default symbol (InfoWater Model Preferences) and Map Display symbol from the "Styles" built into ArcGIS Pro. Both ESRI and my company have custom .stylx files that house our custom symbols for points, polylines, and polygons. Having the option to chose the default style from these pre-populated styles would be fantastic. Currently, the options to change the symbol feel like it limits the modeler to changing either the color or the size.

    To see where these styles live in ArcGIS Pro, head to the View tab, click on Catalog Pane, then drop down the…

  9. Allow InfoWater to export simulation results in CSV format instead of DBF

    The option to "Export simulation results for external application" in InfoWater would be more useful if the results were exported as CSV files instead of DBF files. We regularly need to compare the results from multiple model scenarios. Microsoft PowerBI or Excel PowerQuery are great tools for importing and comparing large amounts of data and could streamline this process significantly. However, neither support importing directly from DBF files.

  10. Persistent Graphs in InfoWater/InfoWater Pro

    Stored graphs aren't that great. Why not just make graphs persistent? This is one area where competitors blow away InfoWater and InfoWater Pro. No contest.

  11. Provide a Standard Warehouse of new assets

    Allow the company that is running the software to define a standard warehouse of new assets so the modellers using it know the assets they are adding have the settings (diameters) of the actual assets or pipes that particular company uses.

  13. New Feature is Active in All Scenarios Option (InfoWater/Pro)

    Add a tools/options option so when you add new features they will be active in all scenarios, instead of getting errors 100 times for every scenario you try to run where the features were not included originally. This would be especially useful when using Intelliselection.

  14. 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.

  15. 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)

  16. InfoWater: Report volume stored in tanks

    I can calculate volume from level, but it's an extra step and requires that I copy the run results out to Excel. It's even more difficult if I have a non-circular tank. Please include tank volume in the tank results and in the "System Demand" report.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  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.
