I initiated an export pages task in Confluence Cloud and accidentally closed the progress view window. Thinking I might have cancelled the task, I tried to initiate an Export task once again only to prompted saying that an export is running in the background.
Is there any way I can check the progress of this background task?
How will I be notified to download the prepared zip once the task is complete?
Unfortunately there's no progress indicator for Cloud exports currently. If you have one that's running longer than you feel it should and would like help, you can definitely raise a support ticket with us and a Cloud support engineer will investigate.
Once the backup is complete, the Backup Manager page will have a link for you to download. Screenshot example:
