Job Status portlet

The Job Status portlet shows a graphical representation of the jobs in your system, using color to represent the phase and current state of the jobs.

The Job Status portlet is only available on the updated user interface.

The portlet displays two rows of colored stripes. The top row represents processing phases and the bottom row represents job states. In the image below, the purple stripe in the top row represents the Prepare phase and the lime green stripe represents the Print phase. The blue and yellow stripes under the purple stripe show the status of the jobs in the Prepare phase. The blue, red, and yellow stripes under the lime green stripe show the status of the jobs in the Prepare phase.

The Job state category colors represent these job statuses:

When you hover on a colored stripe in the top row, you see information about all the jobs in that phase. The information includes the phase name and the number of jobs in the phase.

Job Status portlet with Phase information panel open.

When you hover on a colored stripe in the bottom row, you see information about all the jobs in that job state category within a specific phase. The information includes the phase and job state category name and the number of jobs in that phase and state.

Job Status portlet with Phase and State information panel open.

Click View when you hover over either stripe to open a table listing all jobs in that phase or phase and job state category.

Jobs window open on top of the updated user interface.

In the dialog that opens, you see a list of jobs in a table with the same columns as the Jobs portlet on the Main page. You can do the same actions in this dialog as you can on the Main page.

You can move and resize the dialog, and leave it open while you use other portlets. However, the information in the dialog is not updated as jobs more through their workflows. Changes to the table (such as adding columns or applying filters) apply only to the dialog; they are not applied to the Jobs table on the Main page.

To close the dialog, click the X in the upper right corner.
