The My Jobs pane displays task and job information for each of the following statuses: Current; Recent; Scheduled; On Demand; and Disabled. For Current and Recent jobs, associated tasks are listed in separate categories. In these nodes, jobs and tasks are distinguished in this format — x, y — where x is the number of jobs and y refers to the number of tasks that make up the job. The numbers in the Current Jobs node corresponds to the values in the Status Bar’s Active Jobs Count and Active Tasks Count areas, respectively.
