Detailed Task Status

A typical task status detail page might look like this:



A single post-processing task will often contain several individual steps. In this case, the task contains steps for:

  • Clipping 
  • File Tagging
  • Adding the clip to the Library
  • ShowSqueezing the file
  • Cloud Share
  • Deleting the transcoded file

The steps are run in sequence, and the information on this page will reflect that. In this case, the Tag File and Add to Library steps will not show any progress until after the ShowSqueeze step is complete.
