2. Create a batched update set with them.
3. Wait until the batch preview finishes. 
4. Remove the parent from the batch
5. Wait until the new batch and the single update set (previous parent) finish previewing.
  • The single update(previous parent) can't finish previewing.

  • The following error shows in the log:

    2017-07-20 16:27:39 (018) worker.1 worker.1 SEVERE *** ERROR *** Can not find progressWorker: 6c0d57c6ed000300cdf6cb2d85969470
