 Question 5: In World Software, the Percent menu functionality is used to submit multiple batch jobs in a single-threaded job queue. Is there a way to achieve the same functionality in EnterpriseOne Solution Explorer?.
 Question 6: Is it possible to copy tasks?
 Question 7: By design, version column is missing in Work With Tasks Form (P9000|W9000I) form. Currently a few of the E1 menu tasks are created for the version of the object. Since version name column is in the F9000 table but only Application Name column is in the grid in the application, having version name in the gird will help with better search options in the application P9000.
