After selecting an endpoint name, matrix name, and date, the contents of the matrix will be displayed as a grid.  The cells of the grid are color coded to show existence and contents of a DropBox.


The colors are as follows:


Charcoal - No DropBox is currently present.

White - A DropBox is present with no completed tasks.

Pink - A DropBox is present and has failed at least 1 task.

Green - A DropBox is present and all tasks have completed successfully.


If a DropBox has been sent files to process, the corresponding cell will contain text indicating the status of the jobs.


T : Total jobs in the DropBox.

F : Number of failed jobs in the DropBox.

S : Number of successful jobs in the DropBox.

In order to do so, the following is required:
