Checking progress of task on Ubuntu server

I have both a Ubuntu server and a laptop (for work / personal use). A coworker asked me to perform a heavy task on the server. Here's my question: I'm currently connected to the server through SSH. But when I leave the office, the SSH session is lost and I don't know what happened to the process of the task. Could I just let the actual process run and then when I turn on the laptop, I can check the progress of the task? Thank you.

    For this purpose you can try to use CV command that is a small tool/utility, which can help to do that you wanted. The main file name is “cv-master.zip” or “cv-master.gzip”. Download/install and run the command as, ./cv -w and press Enter key. Or please link here for more help: https://github.com/Xfennec/progress
