      • Allow cachebusting URLs

        I use updown to check a url that is behind a caching CDN. If the origin server goes offline, real users making requests for new URLs will see errors, but I will not be notified of downtime: the updown check will still succeed since the URL it is checking has been cached.

        I'd like the ability to add a random string to a URL each time it is checked, so that requests bust through the cache and check that both the CDN and origin server are online

        • Negative monitoring

          I would like to have checks which fail when something is there which shouldn't be there. For example a http endpoint which should only be available through https.

          • Order by status and disabled checks

            I like ordering checks by status having the "down" first.
            It would be nice, in this view, to have the disabled checks at the bottom of the list.

            • Group identical domain suffixes when ordering lexically

              Right now I have about 20 subdomains across 3 top-level domains.

              The current "domain-suffix-oblivious" lexical ordering is kind of a mess.

              I really wish all my "hexstreamsoft.com" subdomains were grouped together, and same thing for my "hexstream.net" and "hexstream.xyz" subdomains separately. Right now those are all "randomly" jumbled up together based on the lexical order of their lowest subdomain components.

              • 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!

                • Ajax without reloading page

                  When we add new monitors or edit existing monitors, prevent ajax to reload page, I think this will improve UX, especially those who have a lot of monitors.

                    • Choose alert recipient with API

                      It would be nice to be able to choose which notification recipient (email, sms, ...) to activate/deactivate when creating a check through the API.
                      For now all recipients are activated by default.

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

                        • 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.

                            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.

                            • 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.

                                • 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).

                                    • Make detailed pricing information publicly available (without registering and logging in)

                                      updown.io is STUPENDOUSLY inexpensive compared to most other uptime monitoring solutions available today. This is obviously one of your strongest selling points.

                                      So, "hiding" detailed pricing information on the logged-in-users-only page https://updown.io/credits/buy seems counter-productive. I was especially surprised by the big discounts given when buying credits in bulk. It seems to me that a version of this page (or equivalent information) should be made available for everyone, even if they haven't signed up for the service yet or are currently logged out. (This would make it easier for fans to share this information with friends or other prospective users, as…
