Call Cache Wizard doesn't work while the task is completing

The call caching wizard is amazing and I use it all the time. It's helped me understand my WDLs better and debug things that I probably wouldn't have noticed without the Workflow Dashboard. The one issue I have with it is that you have to wait for the task to complete before you can use it, otherwise I get an error:
{ "errors": [ "Failed to extract relevant metadata for call A (08017d31-dba3-44c6-a455-6aa3a867d44d / pileupCaller.HC1:0) (reason 1 of 1): No 'hashes' field found" ], "message": "Failed to calculate diff for call A and call B", "status": "error", "timestamp": 1625069448780 }
If I have to wait for the task to complete I sometimes forget to pursue it later so I know I'd be catching even more issues if I could use the call caching wizard before the current task finishes.
