When a user starts running a process which will take some time, such as an API import, the progress of the process is displayed in the Jobs tab of the admin dashboard. The table also displays completed, stopped, and error-interrupted jobs.

The Jobs table shows a job’s ID number, class of job, Status and the Owner, or user who started the job.

You can order the rows of the table by ID, Class, Status, or Owner (descending or ascending) using the drop-down menus just above the table on the upper right.
