Tasks Node

The Tasks node contains a list of all the tasks that you have configured and you can expand each task to show the Exchange objects (such as an organization or Exchange servers) included in the task.

If you right-click the Tasks node, you can set properties for all tasks. For more information, see Introducing Task Default Properties .

If you expand the Tasks node, you can view existing tasks and make changes to the individual tasks.

The tasks that appear in the Summary view provide the following information:


Displays the name assigned to the task. To change the name, you can open the Task Properties dialog box and change the task name on the first page.


Displays the credentials used to run the task. If you need to change the credentials, you can open the Task Properties dialog box and edit the Task Credentials page.


Indicates the schedule frequency set for the task. To change the schedule, you can open the Task Properties dialog box and edit the Task Schedule page.

Next Occurrence

Indicates the next time the task will run. This information is based on the Task interval information you set on the Task Schedule page.


Displays the description of the task as it appears on the Task Properties dialog box.


Displays a progress percentage and progress bar to represent all the constituent activities of the Task.

Available Options for Tasks

You can perform the following actions for an individual task.


Cancels the task (or component tasks) that are not complete. If you cancel a task, component tasks in progress finish and all pending tasks are cancelled.


Deletes the task from the Task list.


Opens the Properties dialog box for the selected task. For information about individual task properties, see the chapters about Default Gatherings and Extending Default Gatherings.

Run Now

Allows you to start the task immediately.

Run Now with Override

If a task has run successfully, built-in gathering rules prevent a task from regathering information in the same (UTC) day. This option allows you to force a task to rerun and regather information when it has already completed successfully the same day. For more information, see Forcing an Update on Demand for Exchange .


Allows you to customize the view of the MMC environment. This option is an MMC default.


Allows you to refresh the console view.


Opens the online help. MessageStats online help and the MMC online help are available from the same system, depending on the node selected in the treeview.

Expanding Tasks in the Task Activity View

When you select a task in the treeview, it appears in the Task Summary view in the right pane. You can expand the task to view the task status and related information in the Task Activity view.


Describes the tasks. For composite gathering tasks that contain many component tasks, the Description column lists each component task and any other associated task activities.
