  • How to tell scheduled task is running

    What is the best way to tell if a scheduled task is running?

    1) If the an hourly scheduled task's next scheduled task is in the future, does this mean for sure that the task is running? Example, I saw the task scheduled for 3:05pm. Then around 3:30pm, I saw that it had changed to 4:05pm. Does this mean that the task ran?

    2) Task log for a task that is checked to generate log of task activity. I do not see an activity log for a task that runs hourly and is supposed to generate log. As in the example above. The next task time is changing but I am not seeing a log of the task. Does this mean that it is definitely not running?

    I have checked the template to make sure the footer contains the part where it says DO NOT REMOVE for $cronimage.

    Thank you!

    Do you have the setting Log Entries set to Yes for the Scheduled Task?

    If the times are changing on your tasks, then it sounds like they are running.
