Business value

Flexibility related to long-running operations (like reports) is essential in modern business systems, even when you work with large amounts of data.

Feature details

You can now cancel long-running operations or application jobs. The user is presented with a progress window that shows the number of processed rows with the option to cancel the entire operation. When canceled, the system asks for confirmation and then requests the job to be canceled.

A typical scenario is the ability to cancel reports or long-running batch jobs, but this feature extends to canceling other long-running operations, such as bulk posting of invoices.
