From version 6.2.68 of the Cobwebb Server software we have provided a Cobwebb Tools menu which contains various Spooled File tools, together with the new Cobwebb Job Scheduler. There is an additional option to switch your interactive Cobwebb environment into TEST mode to aid with testing your designs. This will override the output Status to be Held for Print, Fax and Email destinations only. This TEST mode also has a TRACE option which may be enabled to add extra information to the JOBLOG to help identify any issues you may have such as the Parameter values on the Input and Output of Exit programs.
