    • Don't reload the page after saving an item

      When saving an item, the whole page reloads. It would be cool if it could be done in the background so I could keep editing other checks.

        • Add Chinese monitor location

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

          • Add credit usage estimation based on past usage (including SMS)

            There is a credits usage estimation based on the current load. However our credits are mostly used by SMS messages. The current estimation is usefull but it would be great to also have an estimation based on past usage (inclunding SMS messages).

              • OpsGenie integration

                It would be great to have integration with OpsGenie. This would enable escalation of alerts and use their service to send the alert to the on-call colleague.

                  • Widget and badge status

                    Status pages are really good, but it's sometimes simpler to have a widget to integrate into another site.
                    (badges are also very cool ;))

                      Yes actually there is an integration with http://shields.io/ planned to provide standard badges to everyone. We probably won’t do any widget though, it’s hard to do one that will look good on most websites. We’ll release read-only API keys in January though, that will allow building highly customizable status page / widget directly in javascript.

                    • 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.

                        • Hipchat integration

                          I like the slack integration but my team is using hipchat.
                          I'd like to see the same integration with this tool.

                          • Sort checks by apdex

                            Would love an option in the dashboard to sort checks by apdex, to make it easier to see which of our sites are not doing so well.

                                  This is still planned but in the meanwhile we released read-only API key, which allows you to build truly custom status page or dashboard in javascript by calling our API directly. I thought you might be interested to know that ;)

                                        Hello!
                                        Would be very very interesting to have a restricted read only dashboard with all our monitored webs protected with user password.
                                        It can be very good to give to our bosses or clients, and not being worry about they changing any config.
                                        Today, I make a simple excel dashboard getting times with the API because I dont have this.
                                        Thank you!! :-)

                                        • Clarify amount of time left with current credits

                                          Right now, the credit display reads something like this: "99,999 credits — 23m 4d". When I first started, with 100000 credits, this was confusing to be, because I assumed that the "23m" part meant 23 *minutes*. After a bit, I clicked on it, and found that it was really 23 months. This should be clarified to something like "99,999 credits — 23 months, 4 days."
