  1. Add Chinese monitor location

    The response time to Chinese server (located on Alibaba or Baidu for example) is very slow for non-Chinese clients.

    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.

  2. Time to first response

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

  3. Custom Logo

    I think a custom logo has been suggested before in a comment (https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972-general/suggestions/33892252-custom-css-for-public-status-pagess), just wanted to raise it a suggestion now

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. STARTTLS check for SMTP servers

    Ath the moment SMTP ports may be checked for responsiveness but not for valid connections. Interesting would be:

    • check if there is really a SMTP server
    • check for STARTTLS
    • check for valid certificate / expiring certificate
    • check for MTA-STS/DANE

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Allow custom headers in webhook requests

    It would be great if you could sent custom headers (and values) in webhook requests. This would allow you to add an API-key as a header which you can check in the system receiving the webhooks to validate it is actually the updown-io services sending the request.

    Currently this is do-able by adding a GET-parameter with a key to the webhook URL, but sending custom headers would be a more preferable option.

  12. JSON version of the status page

    Having a JSON version of the status page allows any possible integration with 3rd party tools/dashboards. Lowers the amount of API requests required to get similar content (even though I think not all of the information that is currently visible on the status page is also available using the existing API). Probably you want to put it behind the API key except maybe for public status pages.

  13. Integration with Geckoboard

    Geckboard is a popular system to display a variety of metrics via a dashboard for the room. I understand this can probably be done with the API, but if you did a direct integration with them I'm sure you'd see your sign-ups increase since you'd be on their integration list.

    Just my 2 cents worth. :)

  14. Weekly reports via Slack

    Weekly reports via Slack

    It's wonderful to have weekly reports sent by email. It would be awesome to have the option to send them to Slack as well. If we could choose email and/or Slack for reports (like for the alerts) it would be ideal.

  15. 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.

  16. Allow API key revocation

    The super-powered API key is supposed to stay secret, but it can sometimes go public because of mistakes.
    It would be nice to be able to generate a new API key, which will revoke the old one.

  17. Break down the time taken by redirects since they're often a key part of the user experience

    Currently updown.io breaks out the time of normal requests into:

    • name lookup;
    • connection;
    • tls handshake; and
    • response time

    but shows redirects as a single block of time. It would be useful to see redirects broken out the same way.

    Users often type naked domains, like example.com, into browsers. That might lead to this sequence of redirects:

    http://example.com/ -> https://example.com
    https://example.com/ -> https://www.example.com
    

    (HSTS preload requires the first redirect; you can't go straight from http://example.com/ to https://www.example.com.)

    Depending on how you're handling both http and naked domains the time for the redirects can be much greater than the time of…

  19. 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.

  20. Shareable private status pages

    When I'm logged in, I can view our status pages at updown.io/[token]

    But we do monitoring for clients, and it would be great if we could share an URL to a private status page like updown.io/[token]?[random_passkey] which would allow people who have that URL to view the status page, even if they are not logged in.

    The random passkey would be an automatically generated alphanumerical string. There would have to be an option to expire a passkey and have a new one generated.
