Comparing tasks

You can compare tasks of the same type: for example, you can compare two malware scan tasks, but you cannot compare a malware scan task and an update installation task. After the comparison, you have a report that displays which settings of the tasks match and which settings differ. You can print the task comparison report or save it as a file. You may need task comparison when different units within a company are assigned various tasks of the same type. For example, employees at the accounting department have a task of malware scanning only local disks on their computers, while employees at the sales department communicate with customers so they have a task of scanning both local disks and email. You do not have to view all the task settings to quickly notice such difference; you can simply compare the tasks instead.

Only tasks of the same type can be compared.

Tasks can only be compared in pairs.

You can compare tasks in one of following ways: by selecting one task and comparing it to another, or by comparing any two tasks from the list of tasks.

To select one task and compare it to another:

  1. In the console tree, select the Tasks folder.
  2. In the workspace of the Tasks folder, select the task that you want to compare to another.
  3. In the context menu of the task, select All tasksCompare to another task.
  4. In the Select a task window, select the task for comparison.
  5. Click OK.

A report in HTML format that compares the two tasks is displayed.

To compare any two tasks from the list of tasks:

  1. In the console tree, select the Tasks folder.
  2. In the Tasks folder, in the list of tasks, press the Shift or Ctrl key to select two tasks of the same type.
  3. In the context menu, select Compare.

A report in HTML format that compares the selected tasks is displayed.

When tasks are compared, if the passwords differ, asterisks (******) are displayed in the task comparison report.

If the password has been changed in the task properties, asterisks (******) are displayed in the revision comparison report (******).
