    • 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.

        • 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.

            • Send webhook-event when website is removed

              It sometimes occurs that a website which is no longer hosted by us goes down and has not (yet) been removed from updown.io. When we see a notification about such a website, it is usually removed from updown.io so it is no longer checked.

              Once it goes down, a webhook is sent and a monitoring-system alerts us of this error. If the website is removed from updown.io, there is no event to notifiy our system of this change, so the error persists.

              It would be great if the deletion of a website sends a webhook so your custom system could…

                • Additional servers esp. UK

                  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?

                    • Add alert groups

                      It would be helpful to create "alert groups" that consist of one or more SMS numbers, Slack channels, etc.

                      For example, I could create an alert group named "Project X" that consists of two SMS numbers and a Slack channel, and then I could assign that group to any alarms that are related to "Project X". In the future, when the members of "Project X" change I can just make changes to the alert group itself, rather than having to go to each alarm and add/remove recipients.

                      Thanks!

                      • Longer History

                        Longer history than 30 days would be excellent for troubleshooting performance issues.

                                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.

                                  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

                                  • Add an alias / label for each SMS number

                                    Having the ability to set an "alias" for each SMS number would be very helpful.

                                    For example, I would like to add a label for SMS +1 5551234567 that reads "Marc's mobile", that way I can easily see who will receive which notifications.

                                      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.

                                      • Ability to toggle Apdex notifications on a per-check basis

                                        I have two sites which I would like to have Apdex notifications enabled, and a third where the notifications are unneeded. It would be nice to be able to toggle them on/off individually rather than having a global enable/disable.

                                        • More apdex values: 1.5s and 2.5s

                                          Perhaps I'm missing something, but I interpret the apdex time value you configure for a site as the desired maximum response time for the site. If this is so, it seems odd that it maxes out at 2s. While a commercial site might be able to afford the hw to get it below 1s easily, not everyone can.

                                          So, could we have a little more granularity in the 1s to 2s region?
