A task summary is a type of event in Formant. A task summary will report task performance or other general information for a given time range. For example, you might want to store how many feet were driven, or how many apples picked, for each mission.

Task summaries

In Formant, a task summary is a formatted dataset which describes a single event or a sequence of tasks, routines, or actions taken by your robot. A task summary can contain any JSON data and be linked to a specific device.

Before you can create a task summary, you must first define how that data is organized. This structured format allows Formant to uniformly display and analyze your tasks in the timeline view or in Formant Analytics. You'll do this by creating and uploading a task summary format with the API.

Task summary formats

A task summary format is a JSON schema which defines the manner in which the task summary data is organized. You must generate and upload a task summary format before you submit task summaries.
