If there is a machine associated, click on the machine you want to associate the downtime.

5. The Downtime record will start. Now, you can either repeat this procedure to add another downtime, or you can end this downtime record.

How to end a Downtime

If you want to end a previously inserted downtime, you can also easily do it. You just need to:
