Manage System Task Status Reports

If you are a Managed Hosting customer, this topic doesn't apply to you.
 

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 selecting the carets at the top of each column. For example, to sort completed copies from those that are still in process, select 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.
