The job queue is always on view in the upper pane of Job Manager. The default view is the Active Jobs view, which displays jobs with the status Queued or Running. When a job is selected, its task list also comes into view.

You can filter the jobs to display all jobs or only jobs that are finished, canceled, or failed. To do this, click the Show menu and then click All Jobs, Canceled Jobs, Completed Jobs, or Failed Jobs.

Jobs and their tasks are displayed in a tabular format. Each line represents a job or task, while each column represents a status, property, or other statistic belonging to the job or task, as follows:
