Job Limits

Usually, only one job (e.g., Exploration) per goal can run at a time. However, with Executions, one goal can run many jobs simultaneously so long as all jobs relating to the goal are of type Execution.

Each journey has a status indicator, these will be updated at the time the execution progresses. Hovering the mouse over a status indicator will show information related to that specific journey and you can also click on it to open the execution report (see Understanding the execution report) filtered by that specific journey.
