The History window provides quick access to all previously submitted batches, allowing
you to conveniently resubmit batches by dragging them to the Batch window and view
submission details about when particular job batches were submitted from your computer.

triangle to see the details
of that day’s submissions.

The History window organizes its contents by the submission date. You can change the
order in which the contents are sorted by clicking the Reverse Sort Order button along
the bottom of the History window. You can also clear the contents of the History window
by clicking the Clear button or remove selected items by selecting them and pressing
the Delete key.
