Maintenance plans have 3 possible statuses:
In Progress - Plan is in progress. When a plan is running, you can stop, duplicate or extend the plan. Stopping an In Progress plan updates the End Time to the time when the plan was stopped.
Planned - A plan has been created to run in the future. While in Planned, the plan can be edited, deleted, or duplicated.
Done - Plan has finished running. Once the plan is done, you can no longer edit it, but you can still duplicate or delete it.
A selected plan's specifications are displayed to the right of the Maintenance Plans list:
- The name of the plan
- Status - Planned/In Progress/Done
- Maintenance Key
- Condition - The query to be marked for maintenance
- Time Window - Start and end time of the plan
- Stop (option only available for In Progress plans)
- Edit the plan (option only available for Planned plans)
- Description (Optional)

- Most recent change - User, time and date
You can use the Maintenance Plans V2 API to further customize your Maintenance Plans.
