Tasking Dashboard Updates

Improvements 🙌🏻

  • Now you can access the Planet Account page directly from the Tasking Dashboard.

  • From the Account page, you can:

    • View the quota bars for current tasking quota usage.

    • Run Quota Usage reports for a detailed breakdown of information about quota availability and usage.

    Note: The Usage reports do not include Data on orders from before November 17, 2022.

  • The Tasking Dashboard Basemap has been refreshed to offer a more detailed view. The new Basemap uses imagery from the PlanetScope constellation to navigate and target your area of interest (AOI) more easily. This is especially helpful in areas with few geographical features.

  • There is a new Expiring soon filter in Orders by State to track expiring Flexible orders.

  • There is a new date picker, so you can now select the date ranges to filter your search for one or more date ranges.

Tasking Dashboard Updates

Improvements 🙌🏻

  • An improved export function provides the ability to download the current filter or table as either CSV or GeoJSON files. We now use the filter name for the file. Previously the export function used the current timestamp as the filename.

For example, If you save a filter as "Orders in Mexico," the download is "Orders in Mexico.csv." If you use a pre-defined filter such as "All Orders" the filter name is used.

Note: Special characters that are not allowed in a filename are replaced with an exclamation mark (!). Special characters include slashes (\ and /) and periods (.).

  • You can now select all columns at once using the Column Picker.

Bug Fixes 🐛

More precise active orders count warning

On rare occasions, the Dashboard did not warn if the maximum amount of allowed orders had been reached before the user opened a new order. Now, the warning correctly accounts for the current contract maximum.
