This page is accessed from the Administration menu, and is used to configure calendar information.

Calendars are used by schedules to determine what days are holidays, weekend and business days, and configure weekend days and bank holidays respectively.

You can batch configure bank holidays by uploading a CSV file in the format yyyy-mm-dd,<Event Name>for example:

2023-01-01,New Year's Day
2023-04-07,Good Friday
2023-04-10,Easter Monday
2023-05-01,Labor Day
2023-12-25,Christmas Day
2023-12-26,Boxing Day


The Remove & Replace switch removes all bank holiday records and replaces them with the content of the uploaded file, so be careful with this function!

Executing Tasks

The Executing Tasks page shows running and queued jobs, e.g. report runs, email jobs Data Mart loads etc. It is accessible from the Administration menu.

From this page you can monitor task progress, and optionally cancel tasks. To cancel a task, click the Cancel button on the far right of the corresponding row, or select one or more tasks using the checkboxes on the left and clicking the Cancel Selected button in the toolbar. This will signal the task to stop and wait for it to finish. Cancelling the same task a second time (double-cancel) will force it to stop immediately.

The page updates in real time by default. If you want to study a long list of tasks in detail, you can stop the real-time updates by toggling the Enable Real-time button in the toolbar.


Please be aware that moder web browsers often put tabs in sleep state to conserve energy. In sleep state, the real-time messages aren't recieved. If you are switching to a tab that has been dormant for a while, you may need to click the Refresh button to get the latest state.


The Users page lets you monitor and configure user accounts with information such as full name and email.

You can also unlock accounts that have been locked due to too many failed login attempts, using the padlock button on the far right of the corresponding row.

The log displays the last 200 client log messages, the last 1000 web server log messages and the last 500 backend log messages.


The log level settings on the Settings page adjust the log levels run-time. To investigate an issue, you can adjust the log levels and reproduce the problem while monitoring the logs on the System Logs page.
