The Analyses window is where you view the output files, output folders, and status of your analyses. You also can view the parameters you used when you submitted the analysis, relaunch an analysis with the same settings or alter them as desired, cancel an executing analysis, and delete an analysis file or folder. You also can share analysis results with collaborators, rename an analysis, and add or edit comments about the analysis.
Viewing the status of your analysis and getting help
After launching your analysis, its status is displayed in the Analyses window in the Status column. If you think something may be wrong with the job—maybe it hasn't progressed past Submitted or your analysis completed but you didn't receive any output files—click the status link to get help. Depending on the current status, you will view possible issues and the opportunity to get help, all within the DE window.
For example, if your status has been in the Submitted state for a long time, click Submitted to view possible reasons why it has not progressed:
Read the help info shown, and after waiting the recommended 24 hours, click I still need help, enter details in the Comments field, click the checkbox to agree, and click Submit.
If the status of your analysis is failed, click Failed to view possible reasons why it is failed:
Read the help info shown and if that doesn't help you troubleshoot, click I still need help, enter details in the Comments field, click the checkbox to agree, and click Submit.
