Data Acquisition - Tasks Management

1. Data Acquisition task creation

Step 1 - Click on "+ NEW TASK" in the Task Manager to create a new task from scratch in the Data Acquisition Module.

 

Step 2 - Indicate the different information related to the Data Acquisition task, at this stage, the minimum information required is the corresponding Company and the Task name. The new task created appears in the "Pending" section of Data Acquisition.

 

Info

  • For tasks generated from the Season Planner module, the task automatically gets the status "Ready".
  • A message is displayed during the task creation indicating that this task will not be rescheduled in the Season Planner
  • The tasks generated from the Season Planner have the suffix “[SPL]”.

 

 

2. Filter and Sort

Users can filter or sort the Data Acquisition tasks with the 2 following buttons.

  •  Filters

 

  • Sort

 

3. Task workflow

  • There are multiple task statuses in the Data Acquisition Module. The user has to edit the task and complete the required information to move from one status to another.
  • To edit a task, click on the three dots menu of the task and "Edit". 

  • There is some required information to move a task from one status to another:
