Manage Jobs and Templates

Sample Manager Help
This topic covers options available for administrators to manage jobs and templates. You will find the active lists of jobs and templates and manage options in the Workflow section.

Manage Jobs

From the home dashboard, click Jobs Home or from anywhere in the application, select Workflow List from the main menu.

Click All Jobs to see the full list of jobs. Other tabs provide subsets.

Edit Jobs

To open an individual job for editing, click the Job Name. Details of editing jobs and tasks are covered in this topic: Edit Jobs and Tasks

Delete Jobs

To delete one or more jobs, use the checkboxes on the Job List to select jobs for deletion, then click Manage > Delete Jobs.

You can also delete a single job by opening it and selecting Delete Job from the menu in the upper right.

Manage Templates

Templates are managed from the Job Templates tab on the Jobs List.

Open an individual template by clicking it's Name. The template overview shows a summary of tasks and assays. In the upper left, you can click the Files tab to see files that are part of the template and on the Jobs tab you'll see a listing of jobs created from this template.

Edit Template

To edit a template, open it as shown above and select Edit Job Template from the menu.

You can edit the Name and Description, but not the tasks associated with the template.

Editing a template does not change any jobs that have already been created from the previous version of the template.

Delete Template

To delete a template, open the details page as shown above and select Delete Job Template. Once a job has been created from a template, you can no longer delete it and this option will be inactive.

There is no option for deleting multiple templates at once.

Workflow Heatmap

You can also view workflow jobs in a heatmap format. There is a row for tracking the count of jobs created from each template and all jobs not created from templates are grouped together in an additional row, "Jobs not from templates."
