I ran into this problem with all our Jobs getting stuck as Queued.  After many hours of investigation, it turned out we had a workflow event command unable to finish processing it's task causing a log jam of queued workflows on our Server's designer.


So I'd like to offer up a Solution C:


Check for Queued jobs on your server's designer by going to Options --> View Scheduals --> Queue




In our case, you could see where the event command kicked off a workflow that couldn't finish so it remaind as Queued in this window.  We cleared the Queue and restarted the Alteryx Services*.  This allowed all our other workfows to be begin running and complete. 


*To restart your Alteryx Services go to the Start window --> Administrative Tools --> Services --> Alteryx Services --> right click Restart
