When an end-user process a shapefile or GPS coordinate file, there should be an option to change the classification, which is present for some of the other processing tasks but not in this one.

Discussion and updates

New task was created

Task was assigned to Paul Hoekman

So this has actually been implemented through the task of setting up the correct queues for CityLoops.

Paul, you had asked me to do a full test there. I have not yet done so, but a partial test already revealed an issue: Simply the changing of the datatype marks the task as completed, although it hasn’t been processed yet. See this one as an example. In the course, Aris demonstrated how the file type can be changed and in the work flow it is now marked as completed. But of course it still needs to be processed here.

I knew there was this other existing task but I could not find it earlier! Thanks for digging this up.

And noted Carolin. I will look into the issue of marking it as completed.

Haha, sure. You are welcome :)
Thanks for looking into it Paul.

I have now sorted this out Carolin. I'm closing this for now, but if you find anything else please comment here and we'll reopen.

Status change: Open → Completed

Cool, thanks Paul!
