Removing Scheduled Tasks from the Menus

While working on A Task to Retrieve URL Content, several improvements were found for Scheduled Tasks:

  • Previously the automated tasks were just listed as completed tasks. If they are running automatically, there's little value in seeing them. Also, they still take up screen space
  • If an automated task is removed, it can cause an error with the report or text missing. While error checking is good for a missing report, its also a good idea to de-automate the task in the remove call

Hiding a task when automating it doesn't take it away the search results. It add more use for the Add a Scheduler Report - all of the automated tasks can be displayed in its report.
