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".

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.

    We started integrating with the Google Safe Browsing API to provide detection of virus, malware, phishing, etc.. Currently the information is displayed in the dashboard but no alerts are sent. This will probably be added later.

  3. 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.

  4. Add phone number to SMS to exclude from Do not Disturb mode

    Add phone number to SMS to exclude from Do not Disturb mode. During the night my iPhone is within "DND" mode and the updown.io service does not send a phone number. I am not able to exclude the messages from the DND mode because I need to create a contact for this which is not possible because there is no phone number

    We started moving away from the “updown.io“ alphanumeric sender ID to a regular number but this will take time as we need to make sure the deliverability stays good in every country

    You can follow the migration here:
    https://headwayapp.co/updown-changelog/long-number-for-sms-alerts-(you-can-help)-106488

    If your country isn’t migrated yet please contact us so we can send some test SMS to verify deliverability with you.

  5. Public status page with several checks

    A status page with several checks, showing daily/weekly/monthly stats for all of them.
