Some debug features allow you to arrange your task steps into sections or mark certain steps  features enable you to provide verbose, real time information about a running task, allowing you to easily monitor and examine many aspects of your project as it is being constructed. With the use of the Debug panel, you can perform a series of “test runs” within the Task Builder interface and use a variety of intuitive debugging and diagnostic toolsets to determine the cause of a problematic task.
