Allow maintance window for planned IT jobs
Allow maintenance window for planned IT job (server down)
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/admin/v3/ideas/15589635/ to be implemented to provide a decent UI for this.

I believe the declination of this idea should be reconsidered. For business users, it's important being able to report uptime outside of planned maintenance. Disabling monitoring manually for each maintenance window is not only impractical, it also removes the awareness and metrics offered by the monitoring plan. I want monitoring running during the maintenance, but to be able to flag a particular downtime interval after the fact to indicate it should not count towards uptime recorded. I came here looking for this particular feature and will have to keep looking, at least for now, despite what otherwise looks like an attractive service.
I need this feature as well. I need a way to measure and report on *unplanned* outages because it's part of our SLA. Is there any way to at least adjust the uptime stats to compensate for planned downtime?

I'm currently evaluating this product and this is a must have feature.
Great idea, it would be extra awesome if you can put in the periodical maintenance window.
I would like updown to check every minutes, BUT notify me when it's down more than 20 minutes in a row, or, allow specific allowed down time, for backup reasons for example (once a week)
Put check in maintenance
