Pass Update Manager

The Pass Update Manager enables users to create and schedule pass updates in bulk. Using the up and down arrows, you can filter each column in ascending or descending order. You can also filter the results by status: Draft, Scheduled, In Progress, Completed, Canceled, Paused, or Failed. Updates can be paused if they are ‘Scheduled’ for a future date and time and are not ‘In Progress’ yet.
