Following Up on Executed Tasks

You can use the Calendar to verify whether tasks have succeeded or failed, and view details of the task execution.

You can rerun tasks directly from the Calendar. You can rerun tasks now, or schedule tasks to run again in the future, regardless of the task outcome. For tasks that have failed, you can choose to re-run the task on the failed devices only.
