Newer, better Slack alerts

 

Improvement

 

 

  1. Longer detailed messages for your incidents

  2. Quick links from your incident details

Integrations like Sentry, AppSignal, New Relic, etc do send quick links which will be captured and sent to you in our new Slack message format.

Thanks to Kyle for this feature request.

Here's how it looks 👇

Send us an SMS to take actions against an incident

 

New feature

 

 

Acknowledge or resolve an incident by sending us an SMS (any of our registered numbers) with the below format -

  1. #2071 ack to acknowledge
  2. #2071 res to resolve

What if your region doesn't get phone/sms from our registered number?

You must still SMS us on our numbers, both of which are based in United States.

Reply on email alerts to take actions against an incident

 

New feature

 

 

It's imperative to take mark your incident as acknowledged or resolved soon as you get an alert from us. Instead of having to make your way to the dashboard, you can reply to our email alert and take actions.

When you get an email alert for say, for example incident #123, reply with these reserved keywords -

#ack - Acknowledges incident #123

#res - Resolves incident #123

Don'ts

  1. Do not reply with incident id, for example: #ack incident 123

  2. Do not send in any attachments and only respond with the keywords

Slack messages auto update upon resolving

 

New feature

 

 

Upon feature request, we promptly looked in and released a new feature on our Slack app.

If any number of Slack alert(s) been sent for a new incident and you managed to resolve it from either Phone, SMS, Email or Dashboard or if the incident was automatically resolved, then the Slack message with automatically reflect the resolved state killing ambiguity on the status of an incident.

No actions are needed from your end and this will be available to all the existing and new Slack app installations.
