  1. Matrix notification

    Hi,
    You are providing Slack notifications. It would great to get Matrix notification (matrix.org). Open source. Open API.
    Thanks.

  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 to avoid increasing issues with sender rewrite in some countries, but this will take time as we need to make sure the deliverability stays good in every country.

  5. 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.

  7. Add optional password access to public status page

    It would be great to have the option to add secure the public status page with a password. Could be as simple as a htpasswd.

  8. 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.

  10. Send a webhook-event for Apdex alerts

    It is already possible to "Be alerted (by email) when your website's Apdex drops more than 0.3 in 1 hour". It would be great if this event could also send a webhook-request. This would allow us to be automatically notified in our custom monitoring-system when the Apdex suddenly drops for a website.

  11. 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. :)

  12. Adding HeadWayApp ID or widget code to the status pages

    I liked your usage of the HeadWayapp to show us what is new with updown.io and it gave me an idea.

    I am mapping all 150 of my websites to the subdomain status.<website>.com in order to allow people to check the status of the websites when they need to. Now, once a person sees the status page and notices an outage, the first thing they are going to be curious about is what happened. I was thinking it would be rad if we could add the "account ID" from the HEadWayapp widget code to status pages. this will allow admins…

    We have a couple of long running dashboard pages and a higher timeout threshold would be useful

  14. Be able to set custom Apdex alert value

    Apdex alerts are currently hard-coded to 0.3 in 1 hour. It'd be nice if we could set the the threshold to a custom value rather than hard-coded at 0.3

  15. Status page with responsive design

    More specifically, we display the status page on a widescreen TV, and we have to zoom out to fit the height of the status page, leaving a lot of unused space on the sides.

  17. 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).

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
