Backtest Error on Basic Template Algorithm

steps:
Using web based IDE, First cloned BasicTemplateAlgorithm, made no changes, imported data for SPY and MSFT via datamanager, then built and ran back test.
BasicTemplateAlgorithm queue's for 20+ minutes and then returns 'backtest error'

Is there anywhere that I can see details on what the error was?
Update Backtest








I've been having similar issues with the backtester since last night. I think it's a temporary bug QC are working to fix and I am sure your algo is fine. When the backtester works I have never seen it take more than 20 seconds to start running.

Thanks for reporting @AshleyMesser! Really sorry about that! We've had a couple of stability bugs as people ramp up their backtesting :) Your backtest should be in the queue and process soon.. there are 50+ in the queue waiting to process now!
