Managing System Task Status Reports

The System Tasks Status page lists attempts to copy a course or course materials in a table. Each attempt is a row with the following attributes (columns):

  • Title: Shows the destination (target)  course ID and the source course ID separated by a pipe (|).
  • Type: Course copy is displayed.
  • Status: Displays the current state of the attempt. The options for this area include Waiting, Complete, and Running.

Reports may be sorted by clicking the carets at the top of each column. For example, to sort completed copies from those that are still in process, click the caret above the Status column.

Administrators can view details of an attempt from this page. Reports on completed attempts may be deleted if they are no longer needed.

A status of Complete means that the operation has finished, not that it was successful. Administrators must open the Details of the Task to ensure it was completed successfully.

How to View a System Task Status Report

  1. On the Administrator Panel, under Tools and Utilities, click Logs.
  2. Click System Tasks Status.
  3. In the contextual menu for the title, click View Details. The report will show the following details:
    • Title: Target course and source course separated by a pipe delimiter.
    • Type: The action attempted.
    • Status: Complete or in progress.
    • User: The user name that initiated the copy operation.
    • Start Date: Date and time the copy operation was initiated.
    • End Date: Date and time the copy operation completed.
    • Results: Successful or unsuccessful.

  2. Click System Tasks Status.
  3. In the contextual menu for the title, click Delete, or select the check box for a title and click Delete at the top or bottom of the list.
