    Changing "Date From" default in Task Manager Batch Log

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23


    The "Date From" in the Task Manager Batch Log is, by default, set to today's date - 30. Is it possible to change this?


    No. The value of today's-date-minus-one-month for the "Date From" value is hard-coded in the GUI program.   The ability to change this default via a system option would be an enhancement request.

    Additional Information

    The logs which appear in the Task Manager Batch Log display come from the $alephe_scratch directory. Logs could be deleted from $alephe_scratch after one, two, or three weeks, thus preventing their display in the Batch Log window. See KB 16384-55137 ("How to delete groups of files from $alephe_scratch").
