On the listing page for scheduled tasks (/CFIDE/administrator/scheduler/scheduletasks.cfm) there is a column "Duration" which for my task has a date in it.  A date is not a duration.  I have no idea what information this column is supposed to impart, so I dunno what better column name to suggest.  Is it supposed to reflect how long the task took to run?  Seems like off info to list in that table, if it is.

Duration specifies the dates during which task runs. Does not look like a bug to me. Closing it.

"Duration specifies the dates during which task runs" Right, well that's wrong then. A *duration* is a date part, like "one hour", not a date range. That'd be "a date range". So the label *is* wrong.
