The Recent Activity area is a summary of the activity within QL2 Live for your username. This summary includes recently executed searches and their results. From this page, you can view the results of a search by clicking on the output file link or icon. What you see here depends upon the output your organization chose to receive. For example, a CSV‐formatted spreadsheet will have the icon for the spreadsheet application your organization uses.
The Search Status area contains information about scheduled searches and currently executing searches. If a search is scheduled for execution, this area shows the search, date, and time the search is scheduled. If a search is currently executing, this area contains the name of the search and the percentage it is complete.
Account Summary contains account-specific information along with times and dates for your previous login, your current session, as well as the current time.
