This notification auto-hides itself and is shown only once per visitor.

Some use cases::

  1. If you are a SAAS business, you can embed upcoming planned maintenance notifications on your dashboard. This way your users will be reminded and they can choose to take necessary actions.
  2. Crypto trading platforms embed notifications for better transparency on their trading dashboards
  3. Your business home page is another great place to embed notifications.

Thanks Leo for requesting this feature.

New feature

  

If your uptime goes down, your status page will automatically reflect that. When your uptime recovers, the status page will also recover. You can set this up by editing or creating an uptime.

One uptime ==> One status page

One status page ==> Many uptimes.

Large amounts of requests flew in for this. So, we are very happy to build this one out.

On-call <> Google calendar sync

 

Improvement

  

Personal calendar not syncing with on-call has been a huge blocker for a while. Well -- round up everyone 'cause we have finally bought in a huge improvement to this.

Our calendar export options come with sync using webcal. This will export a new calendar and subscribe you to it's events and update automatically as and when on-call changes.

Visit On-call > My schedules > calendar view (hit the icon) > Export

Thanks Nathan and Andreii for requesting this feature :)

Add multiple responders to a single incident

 

New feature

  

We are releasing support for multiple responders for a single incident. This is great because we believe this will bring in better Transparency, helps gain Empathy, and sets future incident context to help reduce MTTR
