Understanding the "Enable Stem All" Setting

The "Enable Stem All" setting is a vital component of BlastIQ Mobile Configuration, and its behaviour varies depending on whether it's configured at the plant or quarry/site levels via the Admin portal.

Note: Please see this article on How to configure a site that can support multiple customer sites for BlastIQ Mobile using Admin portal

  1. Plant-Level Configuration
    • Activating "Enable Stem All" at the plant level affects all sites within that plant. In other words, it activates the "Stem All" feature for all quarries or sites linked to the plant.
    • If you deactivate "Enable Stem All" at the plant level and activate it at the site level, the site-level setting won't override the plant-level setting. This means that the "Stem All" button will not be visible in the BlastIQ Mobile interface.
    • Configuring "Enable Stem All" at the site level linked to a plant is impossible, as it would affect the login.
  2. Site-Level Configuration
    • When a site isn't linked to a plant, users can control the 'Enable Stem All' feature. When enabled, the 'Stem All' button appears on the mobile app; when disabled, it disappears.
  3. Recommendation
    • It's not advisable to disable "Enable Stem All" at the site level because a site may be accessed directly or through a plant-level setup. It's best to manage this setting at the plant level to ensure consistent behaviour and avoid unexpected issues.
