Jobs Table

  • The Status and Actions Columns have been revamped to simplify the Jobs Table.

  • All action buttons (Delete, Resubmit, View Logs, etc.) have been moved into a drop down menu in the actions column.

  • Simple versions of each status are now shown for single-status jobs instead of a filled progress bar.

  • The progress bar is still used to show the status of multiple-status jobs (i.e. workflows).

  • Several arguments for the Jobs Table are now deprecated in favor of a simpler method.

  • Gizmo Showcase was updated for the Jobs Table.
