Simulated vs Scheduled Jobs

The Job Queue divides jobs into two types: Simulated and Scheduled. All jobs begin as simulations and must be scheduled before they can be sent to a physical device. Simulated jobs are visible only to you, but Scheduled jobs are visible to everyone in the organisation.

Scheduled jobs are either Queued (amber label), or Completed (black label). Scheduled jobs are Queued before they are sent to a device and Completed after.
