c. Set this information up for each hole type you will be using. This can also be saved as a separate file if required. It is important to set the backfill, redrill and wet state tolerances for use within the BlastIQ system. Ensure that use backfill is selected for the backfill tolerance to be used within the wider system. 

4. Edit the available resources for your site. Products are defined within the BlastIQ system and can be pulled down from the system for your template. Select Available resources, select to load the scheme from BlastIQ.
