Split events retroactively for accurate fine-tuning of logged stop events' reported reasons.

For example, you left for a planned break, but when you returned the machine wouldn't start up because of a broken part. So after the planned break the machine was inactive due to pending maintenance.

If you don't split the planned break event to report how much time the machine was stalled for each reason, valuable information is lost.

When splitting events retroactively, you first split the event and then report its stop reason.

The retroactive reporting option is available in two places:

  • Machine's Events tab

  • Reporting Stop events page


Machine Events tab

  1. Open the machine page, for example from the Online dashboard or a Shift component.

  2. Click the Events tab.

  3. From the list of events, select the check box of the stop event you need to split.

  4. Click the Split Event Retroactively control, which is now active.
    (If it is not active, check that you haven't selected multiple events.)

  5. In the Split Event Retroactively dialog:

    1. Click within the Split Time field to open the calendar widget. Select the split date and then select the split time.

    2. Click Save to apply the split and close the dialog.

  6. The split event is now added to the top of the Events list with the event group and event reason of the originating event. Select it and click the Report Stop Event control to apply the correct event group and event reason.
