For comfortable remote access work and faster execution of tasks, it is possible to plan a transition to a state in advance. Time fields "From" and "To" allow regulate the period during which selected object status is saved.

Manual state transition

When you change state of the object manually, the following popup window appears on the screen:

OptionDescription
State

A drop-down list to choose the state to apply to the object.

By default the object will be set to the desired state as soon as the "Apply" button is pressed till the manual reset. It is strongly not recommended to set "In work" state without additional options described below, which allow to reset manual state transition automatically - you can miss an accident in this way!


Change reasonRequired field. This reason and the user name are going to be displayed in "Parameters" and "State history" sections of the object.
Set period

Allows to:

- set predefined period for the manual state transition and reset;

schedule the manual state transition in the "From" field;

- schedule the manual state reset in the "To" field.

This options are useful in cases of the scheduled equipment or service maintenance.

Reset on state

This option allows to reset manual state transition automatically when the object gets data, that meets respective "State change conditions" of the current object.

This functionality is usually used in cases of accidents. The user or the responsible duty staff can choose "Maintenance" state in the "State" dropdown list and "In work" state in the "Reset on state" one - the object's state will be set to "Maintenance". As soon as the problem is fixed and the object gets data that meets "In work" state condition, the manual state transition will be reset.


To set an object to the "Maintenance" mode you may wish to configure additional state, e.g. "Maintenance".
