Can I batch run multiple parametric studies?

I really enjoy the functionality that FlowSim provides with parametric studies, especially goal optimization. So far, I have been running only one at a time and waiting for the current one to finish before manually closing it then opening another study.  This method is sometimes inefficient because if one finishes overnight, hours are wasted before I get back to the office to start another one.


I would like to know if there is a way to essentially batch run multiple goal optimizations so that when one finishes, another is automatically started.


My alternative is creating tons and tons of configurations and batch running those. However, this severely clutters the configuration and project windows with studies I don't need at the end since I am only interested in the "goal" configurations.


If it is not possible to run back to back goal optimizations, I would also greatly appreciate any tips on how to handle a large amount of configurations and trying to identify the "goal" configuration in the set of extraneous ones.


I can provide more specific information on my project goals if needed.


Thank you in advance.
