Problems and Solutions
Why cron management important?
Cron Jobs play an important role in scheduling tasks to run automatically on the store server. It is essential for the effectiveness of store site’s performance. Because cron jobs can trigger actions automatically so it saves a deal of time for store admins when it faces to a lot of different cron tasks
The limitations of Magento 2 Default
errorInconvenience in cron jobs management
In Magento 2 Default, it is inconvenient for store admins to manage cron tasks because it requires access to store database. It is really time-wasting to go into the database when there are any updates or errors of cron jobs.
Separate place of cron jobs with other Magento sections slows down the effectiveness of management.

Monitor all cronjobs at the admin backend
With Cron Schedule, admins can view clearly and manage all the executed and scheduled cron jobs via the backend separate listing grid very easily. The grid allows accessing any time to monitor cron job details including cron job code, group name, activation status, instance classpath, job method, time schedule and action. It is able to edit quickly the cron jobs which are created by admins via this grid. In other words, the grid brings an overview of all cron tasks available.

Record every state of a cron task in details
Another outstanding of Cron Schedule is to allow recording and updating all status of a cron task via History Log.
The Cron Jobs Log will notify the action state of a cron task: Error, Missed, Pending, Running, Success. If the process has the problems, the log will display the message of error details, depending on which admins can solve the issue by reconfiguring it correctly.
Visualize cron tasks in a timetable
When there are a lot of cron tasks with different schedule time, different status, it is necessary to display them logically, neatly and clearly in an appropriate way to help store admins view and manage easily. Timetable format is a wise idea. Cron Schedule offers Cron Jobs Table showing all cron tasks in chronological order. When looking at the timetable, it is very easy to know on which day and at which time what cron tasks are set up.
Importantly, each task is assigned with the specific color bars showing the status visually, for example, red for errors, blue for pending, purple for running, green for success. Admins also can define which tasks are affecting other ones to modify appropriately.
Manually execute cron jobs
Admins can run any cron jobs any time by selecting and apply “Execute” at the Action box easily. Manually executing helps store admins actively update cron tasks when necessary.
