Machine Queue Pane

The Machine Queue pane is displayed on the right of the Tasks and Schedule view. It displays the Collections from the Machine Queue of the task selected within the Scheduling area or the Tasks area. You can add Collections to the task's Machine Queue and remove them anytime you want.

Tip

You can drag Collections from the Network view and drop them on the Machine Queue pane – the Collections dropped are added to the task's Machine Queue. The same result can be achieved using the Copy/Paste technique. Besides, you can drag/drop and copy/paste standalone Machines and Queries. In case Machines and Queries are dropped/pasted to a Collection, they are added to that collection, otherwise embedded Collections containing those entries are created within the Machine Queue.

The Machine Queue pane allows you to review and edit the Machine Queue for particular tasks quickly and easily while navigating between the tasks.

By default, the Machine Queue tree displays only a limited number of available properties for every item, but you can also add columns that display other properties using the column chooser. Do not hesitate to change the visible columns and the filtering principles the way you want. By the way, you can always reset the view layout to the default settings using the Reset Layout command from the view menu.

For Collections and Queries the Machine Queue pane allows to preview the filter conditions without editing those collections and queries. It can be done by enabling the Show Details option from the Configuration menu. When it is enabled, there is an additional preview row under each node representing a Collection or a Machine Query. From this preview, you can see if there is any condition defined, and if there is one, expand it to review the condition using the arrow on the right.

Those actions, together with collections copying and pasting, are also available in the pop-up menu of the Machine Queue pane. The action for adding Collections to Machine Queue is also available in the Machine Queue Ribbon group on the contextual Management page from the Tasks and Schedule Tools category. As for the actions for editing item properties and removing collections from the Machine Queue, you can find the Edit and Delete buttons in the Organize Ribbon group on the Program page.

In general, the Machine Queue pane is a viewer that allows previewing and editing the task's Machine Queue without editing the task itself. In case you are not interested in this pane and would rather save some space on the screen, you can hide the pane by clicking the arrow on the separator to the left of the Machine Queue pane.
