Responsive Dashboard | Incident Templates | Component Descriptions
A few of our most highly requested features over the past month included a responsive management portal, incident templates, and component descriptions...so we've built them for all of you fine StatusPagers.
Unexpected downtime doesn't wait for you to get back to your computer to fix the bug in your last deploy. Instead, you'll need to open an incident on your status page wherever you are to make sure your customers know about the issue. Understanding this pain point, we've taken the time to build a mobile friendly version of the StatusPage management dashboard.
When your site is down and you're updating your status page, you don't want to be laboring over what to name an incident and what the message should say. You can now create Incident Templates to use as a jumping off point for creating incidents. Once you've created templates within the Incidents view, you'll be able to choose from your templates on creation of the incident as seen below.
You can now add descriptions to your components. The description will appear in a tooltip next to the component on your status page. To add a description to an existing component, head over to the components page and click the edit link next to the given component. Here's a great example from Pantheon's status page.
