I have a csv file with headings of Name, Type, and Agency. I select the file using browse. SARTopo pauses and then the resource dialog box disappears and no resources imported. So what am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Sam

    Unfortunately PERSON needs to be capitalized.

    Thanks. That worked. Person is not capitalized in the dialog box. Should probably look into making that not case dependent.

     

    Thank,

    Follow up question. How do I unassign someone from a task? I see how I can add people (resources) but I can’t see how to take someone off.

     

    Thanks,

    Sam

    Sam,
    If you have a different assignment you can go to the resource, hit the pencil to edit, and then use the dropdown to assign them to a different task.

    So there is no way to unassign a person from a task? The only way I seem to be able to make this work is to create a do-nothing holding task so I can assign a person to this do-nothing task as a way to unassign them from another task.

     

    Is this correct?

    Looks like that is a bug that was introduced at some point, but that's correct.

    Although I don't think I can remove resources at this point (and tracks / waypoints linked to individual assignments), as the core focus of the site has shifted exclusively towards mapping, those features have not seen any additional development effort in a while, and have been made somewhat redundant by more recent developments - for resources, real-time location tracking was revamped to no longer be tied to them, and for assignment-linked tracks and waypoints, folders and bulk ops now make it easier to just load them as standard points and lines.
