Allow text updates for incidents147 votes
This was planned for a while because initially with only the individual status pages there was no way to specify any text. But now that we have the multi-site status pages (e.g. https://demo.updown.io/), there is a free text "description" at the top, which supports links, newlines and emojis. This allows for this kind of use-case (roughly) as you can edit this field to indicate incidents, times, some emoji to catch attention on current status, link for more details, etc..
Now that we have this, I prefer to wait before implementing more specific status page features because we don't really want to become a full-fledged status page provider otherwise people will ask for MUCH more (notifications to clients, RSS, integrating other metrics, custom design, etc..) and we have enough work to spend our time on the core product (the monitoring) already ☺
Log of uptime/downtime
Maybe I overlooked it, but is there a log of the incidents available? Simply a text list of the times when a website went down, and when it was up again.141 votesstarted · AdminAdrien Rey-Jarthon (Founder, updown.io) responded
Hello everyone, I’ve just added a way to get the detailed results from the last 5 checks before downtime and recovery to the downtime API, all you have to do is add the “results=true” parameter, like this:
- This API is alpha version, it can still change.
- The response can be huge, I recommend using this only when needed and with http gzip compression if you can.
- The dual stack results (IPv4 and IPv6) will NOT repeat “body” and “received_headers” if they are the same as in the parent result record, to save space.
Let me know what you think!
Periodic task (cron) monitoring
Ability to monitor periodic tasks with a simple HTTP call (like https://github.com/healthchecks/healthchecks, https://deadmanssnitch.com/ or https://cronitor.io/)

Before this is implemented we can recommend some alternative services:
- https://healthchecks.io (SaaS or open source: https://github.com/healthchecks/healthchecks)

Ok I’m moving this back to “under review” as it’s gathering a lot of interest, but this would require first https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972/suggestions/16982392 and https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972/suggestions/15589635 to be implemented to provide a decent UI for this.
Longer history than 30 days would be excellent for troubleshooting performance issues.91 votes
Microsoft Teams integration (not via 3rd party)
Sending messages through a third party is not that great and imho should not be necessary for a large service like MS Teams.80 votes

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.65 votes
Hi all, there's now two options for that which are:
1. Through Zapier (we just added native Zapier integration): https://updown.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1911991 Using this you can connect pushover.net and receive alerts from updown.io. I'm keeping this suggestion "under review" to gather interest about a native integration with pushover.
2. Using a DigitalOcean function to catch the webhook and push it to pushover (contributed by Marc): https://github.com/MarcHagen/function-updownio-to-pushover

Widget and badge status
Status pages are really good, but it's sometimes simpler to have a widget to integrate into another site.

South America checkpoint
Hello, I suggest that a South American checkpoint is a priority. I have (among others) websites in Spanish and Portuguese, and although Spain and Portugal are in Europe, the majority of users in these languages turn out to be from South America. If you need a VPS in Brazil, I can recommend Virtuaserver (I had a good experience with them), or there are many others. Best wishes and keep going.34 votes
Add UK location
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?29 votes
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!28 votes

Add Chinese monitor location
The response time to Chinese server (located on Alibaba or Baidu for example) is very slow for non-Chinese clients.20 votes
While I understand the need, being in China is a lot of work (mainly support and maintenance) as the network conditions are erratic and with out current double check policy would not actually notify if your website is unreachable in China (unless we have two servers here and become a regional monitoring service but that’s not the objective and we can’t just do that in every country). I’ll keep the idea open to measure interest. Also if some of you have recommendations for a dependable and affordable hosting provider in China I’m interested.
