Checks appear in the South-pane Checks tab of the Dashboard, with any newly edited Check indicated by the grayed out status from the last time the Check ran or until the Check runs with the updated settings. During this time the More Information dialog displays Check has been edited and hasn't run on the device type.

Any alterations made in the Windows Agent take precedence to modifications applied from the Dashboard. Where changes to checks are performed on both the Dashboard and Agent simultaneously the updated Agent configuration is used.
