Question:
Why are the reports staying in the "Transferring" state for RA jobs? 
Environment:
They remain in the activities window till their status is manually changed.
Answer:
When an RA job is set to have the report go to the database, as in the below screen:

Job report - Database

It will have a Report (as below) transferring, the entire time it is executing:

Report in Transferring State
Additional Information:
This behavior can be remedied by checking File versus Database for the report. This will require maintenance of the reports on the Agent's associated file system.
