Order of points, after DPOS

After DPOS, and while on DPOS screen, you can view the points, rtk, or DPOS (ppk) results.
The order that these points are displayed is not the same order they were observed. It appears random. It would be nice if they were displayed in the same order, that field work was performed. Or, that the user could select the review order, alphabetical, or shot order, 1st to last, or last to 1st.
Just a suggestion.

Also, it would be nice if there was a button to make it only display the points with a greater difference than xx amount, which is a user settable value. If you have shot 100 pnts in a day, but only 10 of those have a difference horizontally of 0.04' or more, sometimes that's all I need to see. Or, vertical difference of 0.10' or more.
It could speed up the review process.

The tolerances for the red label that indicates a PPK and RTK solution are out of agreement is set in DPOS>Settings (gear button)>Advanced>Base Threshold

That is right Nate, "It would be nice if they were displayed in the same order, that field work was performed. Or, that the user could select the review order, alphabetical, or shot order, 1st to last, or last to 1st.". That would help.
This option already exists:

9296

Export automatically puts the PPK selections at the top of the list. I don't believe there is a setting to change this behavior.

There is also an option to sort exported points either alphabetic or chronologically:

9297


It works correctly when I try it. You find this is not the case?

A while back I asked about adding the ability to change the red solution number to green after the user has reviewed the solutions and okayd it or selected the one they want. I scroll thru the point list looking for the red numbers. When I have selected the one I want the number is still red. I have a memory that doesn't always serve me well so if I get pulled off on something else when I go back I end up viewing them again.

Also, I do not like the auto selection. I always change the solutions to all rtk then review. I really would like the auto selection to go away and JField always hold the rtk over ppk, ppk over code float.

I think the Auto Select is kind of handy even though I don't always agree with it. Maybe I'm missing something but often in deep canopy I will have very few RTK epochs and no validated shot so the PPK solution is better. All things being equal though I agree that the RTK solution is generally a better choice.

It's not the export order that I'm concerned about. It's the DPOS review screen,. The one you have from the DPOS window.
Otherwise, I wind up exporting to Carlson. Then, I use DPOS review to select either rtk or ppk, because I can figure out what/where that shot was. IF the DPOS review screen were in order, it would be a lot better.
The way it is now, with all the RANDOM sequencing, I slowly sequence it all. It's especially a pain if I shot one point 3x. One automatically goes rtk, and 2 go ppk, but they are scattered all over in the file. One is near the beginning, one is in the middle, and one is at the end. Can you imagine reading a book, after somebody randomly sequences the pages, AND the data on those pages? That's what I'm talking about.
Thanks

I see where you are now. I've never used that to review the DPOS solutions. I've always used the point list under Points from the Home screen. Point order follows the user settings there.

@Andrey Zhiganov can you check that the sort function in exports is using the point creation time and not the time the point was last edited?
There was a discussion about this a few years back. I agree that it would be nice if points could be exported in the order that they were observed, regardless of whether they were DPOSed or not.
On Points screen we use sorting by object (point) creation time, for Export - by survey coordinate creation time. I don't remember what was the reason to use sorting by survey coordinate creation time but can add option to select additional chronological sorting method by object/survey coordinate time.

Nate, I can not understand what screen do you meen. Could you attach screenshot and the project with some points to see the issue. Thank you.
