Simulation engine control update
Since the beginning of ICM and allowing to send simulation to other computers in the network, there was a need for knowing exactly who is currently sending simulations and to which computer. Please update the ICM with this improved functionality for the normal user, not for admin only. These people are the ones who send simulation to the network, not IT people!
Thank you for the addition of this request, we are in discussions about how this might be achieved as the level of awareness of tasks is varied between agents. Would a dashboard showing who sent which simulation where (which are still ongoing) be sufficient? This would be without the progress those simulations have already made available as a first step.

Strongly support this. Ideally we should have a dashboard where we can see details of all simulations in a workgroup with facilities to filter and change priority orders. For security and to avoid misuse, this can be restricted to some users, but never the admins, but never the system admins because they'll be from IT.

ideally, i think if we have the same info like we have now in the job control window but this time for all the modelling computers in the network, will be all that we need! the job control shows who is the user, what is the status of the simulation, when the sim was sent, you can go in more detail to estimate when that sim will end. What it doesn't have is info for the other modelling machine, extra tabs should be created there with this info.
Very much support this. Even if you have admin rights it is still very difficult to unpick and you have to look at multiple machines. We have previously asked for a dashboard / control panel to enable jobs to be managed and reprioritised from one place.
