  • Perform and monitor tasks

  • Execute tasks directly in the managed system

  • Comment on your work, or write further explanations for other processors, via log book comments and task notepad descriptions

  • Generate administration reports, for example, task log history and task session report


The screen is divided into the following areas:

  • Function Area
