New Workflow Summary

Workflows are a set of actions that run automatically after we do our weekly data updates. Sometimes, the actions in a workflow can take a long time to complete. This is especially true if the workflow includes an integration with an external vendor that has rate limits. In these cases, it may take several days for the workflow to complete due to these rate limits.

During this time, it can be difficult to understand how much progress the workflow has made and how much work remains to be done. To help, we've just updated the workflow UI to include a summary of all recent actions taken by the workflow - including a time series chart of recently completed actions. The summary only shows up for workflows that have already been run (since new workflows that have yet to be run do not have any data to display).

The new "Last Run Status" column shows whether the action has run to completion or if there's any work remaining to be done. Hover the mouse over the "Last Run Status" column for a more detailed explanation.
