      Description

      Problem:

      Setting a host to maintenance is way to difficult.

      Repeating steps / to many steps

       

      solution:

      Make maintenance periods a choice and not required.

      if someone does not fill in periods use the dat someone filled in by the active date.

      or add a button if its a repeating task or not

      or something like this old zabbix.org form post.

      https://zabbix.org/wiki/Docs/simplify_ad_hoc_maintenance

       

       

      2 examples

      I know that my company is having a sceduled power outage tomorrow at 13:00 until 15:00.

       

      Right now:

      1. name maintenance
      2. Fill in active since
      3. Fill in active till
      4. Add new Periods
      5. Select period type
      6. Select date
      7. Fill in Maintenance periot length
      8. Press add!
      9. Select host/host group/tags
      10. Press add

      I think step 4 to 8 are unesesary for one time maintenance.

       

      how i think it should be.

      1. Name maintenance
      2. Fill in active since
      3. Fill in active till
      4. Select host/host group/tags
      5. press add

       

      And i know the second one is way less advanced for repeating tasks/maintenance.

      But for non repeating maintenance it would be better.
