Status Page


Update Statuspage using the new Uptrends integration

Atlassian, the maker of Opsgenie (We have an integration for Opsgenie too!), also offers Statuspage. Statuspage is a communication tool that allows users to view the current and recent past status of a website, API, or web application. In addition to a hosted status notification page, Statuspage also sends out messages to users to keep them informed about your site’s availability. Now Uptrends can automatically send updates to Statuspage using the new integration.


University's IT Teams Struggle as Fall 2020 Semester Kicks Off

COVID-19 has left colleges and universities scrambling to come up with alternative plans for the 2020 fall semester. Some are opting for 100% online learning while others are taking more of a hybrid approach with a combination of in person and online classes. While schools face an abundance of change this academic year, it’s not just the faculty and students that need to adapt but also the entire IT infrastructure for which the school is run.


5 Biggest Outages of Q2 2020

Anything bad that can happen — will happen. This old adage applies 100% to the technology industry, where crashes and outages are far more common than the sales and marketing teams would want us to think.

Here's the Top Tool Your IT Department Didn't Know They Needed

COVID-19 has impacted every single aspect of our lives as we knew them.

The Importance of Communicating Scheduled Maintenance to End-Users

What is a Status Page? (& How Does It Benefit Companies/Customers)

There’s nothing worse than turning on your computer to start the work day and discovering the internet is down. We all know the frustration of tediously trying to figure out what’s wrong before finally breaking down and calling our service provider and waiting on hold, only to discover that it’s a known issue and it’s being addressed. What if there was a better way?


Embed Your Status Page Everywhere

A well-crafted status page is designed to save you time, energy, and resources when communicating service irregularities. Instead of fielding thousands of support requests when you experience an outage, a status page provides a self-service way for your customers to get up-to-the minute information about any current downtime. It also allows you to proactively communicate maintenance and other work in advance.
