  1. Credit Balance and Burn rate in Weekly E-Mail Reports

    It would be nice to see in the header of the report that same Credit Balance and Burn Rate that's on the header of the system's landing page. I like the low touch of the weekly report, so that I'm never logging into the system but still being let know everything is on the up and up. Knowing how much runway I have would only make it better.

  2. Editing and Deleting multiple sites simultaneously

    Hi, my name is Von Reid and my company uses updown for site monitoring. We like it, it's been useful.
    However, I use your interface enough that I'm going to try to request a few features that will make your interface easier for use for everyone that uses it:

    - Delete multiple sites. It would be sooo much easier to delete multiple sites with 1 click instead of having to delete one site at a time and wait for it to refresh every single time. It takes forever to delete multiple sites right now, but it would be so nice…

    Hi, this has been improved, you can now edit and delete checks independently without any refresh.

    We won’t do bulk delete though as it would complexify the front-end quite a bit for a small gain.

    Also (just in case you don’t already know) if you want to edit check recipient there’s a dedicated bulk edit page where you can see which recipient is enable on which check and toggle by line / row or individually: updown.io/checks/recipients

  4. Order of the bulk update notification recipients

    What is the current logic for the sorting of the bulk update notifications? I hope to see the same order as the 'checks page'. [ Alias / URL ]

  6. API for pushover.net integration

    I use pushover.net for all of my lightweight notifications - it's simple, reliable, cheap and very good so fits well with updown.io :)

    At its simplest, integration takes the form of an API call with a couple of tokens and a customised message.

  9. Show output of requests on status change

    I run a distributed app that resolves to several different servers depending on where you request from in the world.

    Currently when a server fails updown.io does pickup the outage (great!) but its hard to pin it down to which server it is thats failing. It would be good if updown.io could return some/all of the following:

    1) which servers it is actually resolving to
    2) out put of the request it did such as
    > headers that it got
    > what it resolved the website to
    > headers that it sent

    The output of the command that Updown.io gives…

    As I said in my email, we actually already store this and send it to you in the downtime email. There are still some work to do on the display in the UI and integration to Slack alerts for example which will be added in the future.

  10. Localized public status page

    It would be great to provide localized versions of status page based on user agent language (i.e. russian, german etc.)

  11. Don't reload the page after saving an item

    When saving an item, the whole page reloads. It would be cool if it could be done in the background so I could keep editing other checks.

  13. Server should return its idea of "current time" for reliable delta ("last check X seconds ago", etc)

    When I added "last check" and "next check" information on my custom status page using the API, I opted to give a handy "time delta", for instance I might say things like (paraphrased) "the last check was 04:42 ago at 00:46:08" and "the next check will be in 00:18 at 00:51:08".

    This of course requires having an idea of what the "current time" is.

    I initially used simply the (client) time at which I sent the request to the server, but obviously that's fundamentally flawed in many ways, as the client clock and server clock may not be synchronised, and…

    This is a legit question and fortunately it has already been tackled by HTTP. You can find in the API response headers the “Date” field which contains the local server time. You can use it as a baseline for your time difference comparisons.

    It is not by default accessible for CORS requests but I’ve just added the proper expose header so it’s now accessible from javascript too, here is an example:

    fetch(“https://updown.io/api/checks?api-key=ro-xxxxx”).then(function(res) { console.log(res.headers.get(“date”)) })

    Feel free to use it now :)

    But keep in mind that next_check time being in the past will still happen, this is because it’s value is updated after the check, which can take time (between 0 and 30 seconds depending on the server response time and latency) So it can be up to 30 seconds late even on synchronized clock, in this case, you can display something like: “currently running” or something…

    Hi, there is a fallback icon of course if you site don’t have any, but in you case your server does serve a /favicon.ico file which is a blank gif (not very valid), that’s why you see a blank space instead of the default icon. You should remove this gif if you don’t want it to showup.

  15. Microsoft Teams integration.

    Please add support for posting status to multiple Microsoft Teams channels, similar to what exists for Slack.

  17. Lower check frequency

    Lower check frequency for sites that just have to be online, but nothing relies on them. (ex: 1h)

  18. Alert after certain time of downtime

    Implement a function to only send out alert IF website has been down more than ie 5/10 minutes would be AWESOME.

    This is already the case, thanks to the double check we only send alerts if the downtime is longer than your check frequency. So if you set check frequency to 5min, you’ll only receive alerts for downtimes longer than 5min.

  19. Disable email alerts

    An option to disable email alerts if Slack integration is enabled would be great, cuts down the number of notifications. Small thing but would be great :)

  20. Allow using POST method for monitoring

    I’d like to switch to monitoring my API endpoint with updown.io, but the primary endpoint uses POST. Being able to provide custom headers is certainly nice, but being able to customize the request further (i.e. method and submitted content) would be much nicer. Site24x7 which I’m using now lets you provide form data and even check returned value for specific JSON fields.
