In DS 6.9 you had the ability to right click a failed job and select Retry Task, to restart a job from the task it failed on and it would continue on.

In DS 6.9 You could also drag and drop a folder full of base jobs on a PC to have it schedule those jobs in order on a PC, you are unable to do this in 7.1. The suggested method to do this is to create a single job that has tasks to install all of the desired software. The way things are now, say for example you create a job that installs 30 base software titles on a computer:

 

If the job fails on a task that is installing software title #5 or even #25, you can't restart at where it failed, you either have to re-run the entire job, or manually go and schedule each of the software titles beginning with and after the task that failed.

Retry and Continue job will be great.

 

Even we do have the ability to setup the job in SMP to continue when a task is failing, however it will be nice that we can see live what is happening

One of the millions of reasons we are staying on 6.9. We won't use 7.1 until there is a Win32/Win64 console.
