How can we improve updown.io?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Time to first response

    On the dashboard it would be nice to see the timing to the first response

    • Add support for Google Chat incoming webhooks

      We would love to be able to post alerts to Google Chat using the incoming webhooks (cf. https://developers.google.com/hangouts/chat/how-tos/webhooks). A similar integration to the one already existing for Slack would be wonderful!

        At the moment a revoked certificate will show an error on browsers, but will show as "up" by updown.io

            • Add button to fire example webhook to added webhook URL

              Pretty simple, when you add a webhook there should be a "test" button which fires an example event to the webhook URL so the user can test it to ensure it works.

              • Multiple email addresses for the weekly report

                I'd like to be able to enter multiple email addresses for the weekly report. For example, certain department managers would like to receive a weekly report of the checks, but not be disturbed every time a check goes up or down.

                • Custom CSS for Public Status Pagess

                  It would be nice to have either page specific or account wide custom stylesheet applied to the public status pages. Specifically, I'd use it to draw more attention to the translation dropdown and to eliminate some whitespace.

                    • Set lower bound % for uptime per project

                      Let us decide what the lower bound of the uptime % needs to be for the check to be green. No SLA has a 100% uptime guarantee.

                              • Additional servers esp. UK

                                The current 8 servers available are reasonably spread out, but it would be really great to include a UK server so I can see the experience of my UK audience.

                                I would also note that visitors from the middle-East and Africa don't get a look-in: perhaps something in Israel?

                                    • Change Slack webhook integration to Slack webhook URL (so other services which can emulate Slack's parsing to use this feature as well)

                                      Instead of making the Slack webhook integration via the API, just allow users to put in a Slack URL. That way any other service which can emulate the Slack webhook schema can use the webhook feature.

                                      As an example Discord has webhooks and if you add "/slack" to the end of a Discord webhook URL then it will parse the data as Slack does.

                                      Currently I cannot use Updown with Discord. I also suspect that many other programs have an option to parse data like Slack so you could knock out a few webhook integrations in one simple step.

                                      • Add alert groups

                                        It would be helpful to create "alert groups" that consist of one or more SMS numbers, Slack channels, etc.

                                        For example, I could create an alert group named "Project X" that consists of two SMS numbers and a Slack channel, and then I could assign that group to any alarms that are related to "Project X". In the future, when the members of "Project X" change I can just make changes to the alert group itself, rather than having to go to each alarm and add/remove recipients.

                                        Thanks!

                                        • Better expired SSL certificate notifications

                                          Notifications about expired certificates can be improved (made more noticable) in 2 ways:
                                          1. Display expired certificates as downtime (or use some other highlighting) in weekly reports (and other periodic reports).
                                          2. Send repeated notifications for expired certificates (as it is done for downtime).
