otherwise maintained. This blocks the environment from being scheduled for a

be used for any type of event that you need to schedule, such as environment
Conflicting Events: You cannot schedule more than one
maintenance event into overlapping timeframes; if you try, you'll get a message
in the form with the schedule conflict highlighted.

Pending Requests tab and can also be sent
through emails. Approvers can approve, reject, reschedule, update, or delete
Rescheduling: When you reschedule, you can either set the
schedule then, or mark it to set the schedule later. Start and finish
maintenance using the corresponding options.
