BlastIQ™ Insights - Blast Progress


Release Date:
30th August 2023
KBA Summary:
This Knowledge Base Article describes the functionality of the Blast Progress dashboard in BlastIQ™ Insights.


BlastIQ™ Insights Blast Progress Dashboard allows real-time monitoring of the Drill and Blast process, ensuring effective task management and preventing delays in scheduled blasts.  The dashboard is refreshed every 5 minutes and displays blasts from the past three days by default.  This covers blasts modified or created within the last three days using SHOTPlus™, BlastIQ™ Mobile, LOADPlus™, or the BlastIQ™ External API.


There might be a delay of up to 20 minutes for a new blast to appear on the dashboard. This delay is due to calculating the blast boundary performed at the database level.



To navigate to the Blast Progress Dashboard:

    1. From the BlastIQ™ Insights toolbar, select Dashboards.
    2. From the Dashboards menu, select 'Blast Progress'.




Blasts can be filtered using the following filters:

  1. Days Selection:
    • Choose 1, 3, 7, 14, and 30 from the dropdown list.
    • The selected value determines the number of displayed blasts with a maximum limit of up to 20 blasts and a maximum of 15,000 holes.
    • A warning message will be displayed if the total number of holes exceeds 15,000.
  2. Blast Status Filter:
    • Select : All, Fired or Not Fired.
  3. Tags Filter:
    • Click on the Tags icon.
    • Select the desired tags from each category.
    • Click Apply to apply the filter criteria.
    • It will return the blasts containing the selected tags based on the following logic:
      • OR for tags within the same category.
      • AND for tags across categories.
    • Click on Clear and then Apply to clear all tags filters.
    • Click on the X on the top right to close the tags filter; any edits to the filter criteria will be lost if not previously applied. You can read more about Tags here.
  4. Clear All filters - clears any filters that have been applied.
  5. Last Refreshed:
