Script Management
New Action: Global Time Scroll
A new Global Time Scroll script action was added to set the date at which all time displays are scrolled. The setting allows a specified timestep or a symbolic DateTime. More information is available Global Time Scroll in Automation Tools.
Progress Indicators and Display of Actions
To make script execution more informative, the Script Dashboard has been enhanced to provide visual indicators of the currently executing action and the result of the action. .
In addition, sub-script actions (using the Execute Script action) are displayed indented under the calling script action. Progress indicators for subscript actions are the same as top level.
More information on the dashboard is provided Script Dashboard in Automation Tools
