You can now add notes to downtime periods

Oh Dear offers many checks to ensure your website is healthy. The most popular check that is active for almost every site we monitor is the uptime check.

When the uptime check detects that your site is down, it will notify you via one of our many available channels.

The check will also create a downtime period visible on the uptime check results page. Here's what those downtimes might look like.

The screenshot above shows the new little feature we introduced: you can now add notes to downtime periods. You could use these notes to add extra details on why the downtime happened or what actions you took. Examples could be: "Process X was overloaded" or "We've contacted our hosting partner, and they said they had connectivity issues in their data center."

If you're not using Oh Dear to monitor your site, now's the perfect time to get started. We monitor uptime, SSL certificates, broken links, scheduled tasks, application health, DNS, domain expiry and more. We send notifications when something's wrong. All that paired with a developer friendly API and kick-ass documentation.
