The Job Queue – Data Entry dialog displays detailed information on a completed or pending job in the Job Queue. The General, Schedule, and History tabs appear for all job types.

Its status changes to 'Running' while the processing takes place, and to 'Completed' when it is finished. 'Schedule' denotes a newly created job that hasnʼt run yet.

'Stopped' signals that a job has halted because of an error; if you see a job with this status, please contact Λctiv8 support.

Label: Varies by job type; usually contains a search string.

Email Message Log After Completion: When checked, Manager will send a confirmation/error message when the job is finished.
