Here's how you can perform a quick service status change:

1. From anywhere in Freshstatus, click the 'Change service status' button

2. On the side panel that appears, select the services and choose the new status from the dropdown lists. Change the status of all selected components via the dropdown menu next to 'Change service status'

3. Click the 'Set service status' button at the bottom of the panel to apply the changes

Once the status has been changed, the next step is creating an incident:

1. Click on the little arrow next to the 'Quick status change' button

2. Click 'Activity log' to access
