How it works in SHOTPlus™

Pre-condition: You have already renamed the blast name using BlastIQ™ Insights.

  1. Launch SHOTPlus™ version #6.16.70 or a later version.
  2. Open the previously exported file to BlastIQ™.
  3. Click on the "Export Plan" / "Import Plan" button.
  4. Login for authentication.
  5. The modal opens and automatically displays the updated blast name.NewPlanName.png
  1. SHOTPlus™
    • Renaming a blast name within Insights does not notify SHOTPlus™ users about the change. As a result, if a user exports an existing plan in SHOTPlus™ without using the new/updated blast name, it will create a new plan instead of updating the existing one; this can lead to data duplication and inconsistencies.
  2. BlastIQ™ External API Integrations.
    • Renaming a blast may also affect integrations with the BlastIQ™ External API, such as Drill System integrations. The new plan name must be used in the API integration after the blast is renamed to avoid integration errors.
