    On queue or In queue?

    When you want to say a job is being put on queue, in the title of a work schedule ,will you say
    1) "On queue job" or "In queue job" or
    2) in another way "Jobs in queue" will be better?

    Thanks for your help,
    Kitty

    Re: On queue or In queue?

    I prefer 'jobs in queue', or 'queued jobs' - 'on queue' sounds to me like a simple mistake. It also runs the risk of being misunderstood as meaning 'on cue' [=just at the right time].

    'Jobs that are in the queue' is an alternative; a bit wordy for a title though.
