Problem Description: The icons for scheduled tasks are very difficult to differentiate.  At minimum paused / running icons should be different colors or shades.  Could be problematic running a paused task by accident, or vice versa.

Steps to Reproduce:  Have a number of scheduled tasks and look at the list.

Actual Result: potential chaos

Expected Result:  buttons that can be read

Any Workarounds:  edit image files to change tint and put back in administrator

Agreed that its virtually impossible to see if a task is paused or running

Totally agree. We have a list of thirty or so tasks, with some paused and some not. It is incredibly hard to differentiate between the two icons. Such an easy fix for you guys to include in the next update too!

Verified this is fixed in CF2016 Update 1 (build 2016.0.01.298513). However, the positioning of the icons is jarring. The Run & Resume icons should switch places, so that the Pause & Resume icons are both in the same column. Will log a separate ticket for that. Thanks!, -Aaron
