Dashboard events subtab

Purpose

Located on the fourth subtab under the Dashboard, the Events subtab will allow for viewing of system events regarding the scanning of the files from the local host. The Events widget is broken down into three subtabs: (1) Pending (2) Postponed & (3) Solved. This widget displays the failures for the system tasks running in the background and provides the ability to add comments to each event and select if the event was postponed or resolved.

*Please note: Ensure that the proper node is selected since different nodes may have different dashboards entirely.
