In this post, I will explain how to add Scheduled Events to your Status Page?
Step 1: Create a component
Think of components like folders that contain other Fyipe resources and one of the resources it has is called “Monitors”.
They can help you to monitor security measures and manage logs of any of your resources.
They can also help you get SMS Alerts, Call Alerts, or Email Alerts during downtime.
Therefore, we click on “Create Component” and provide the name of our component, let’s say, “Home Page” and click on “Add Component”
That’s it…we have successfully created a new component.
Step 2: Add a Website monitor to your component
A website monitor will basically test your Website for availability, performance, and function.
It will also notify you when it goes down or performs poorly.
Therefore, we provide the name of our website, let’s say: “Google” and click on “Website”.
Now, we need to provide the URL of our website, that will be “google.com”
Let’s click on “Add Monitor”.
Your Website Monitor is now successfully created and added to your component.
This is how it looks like when Fyipe is monitoring your Website.
Now, we need to add a Status Page to it.
Step 3: Create a Status Page
Let’s click on “Back to Dashboard” button on the Sidebar.
And click on “Status Pages”.
We simply create a new status page, and name it.
Let’s say “Status page”
Our status page is successfully created.
Now, we need to add our “Website Monitor” to it.
Step 4: Add Monitor to your Status Page
Scroll down and click on “Add Monitor”
We select our Website Monitor from the dropdown and click on “Save Changes”
Now we simply click on the link above to preview our status page.
Your status page is successfully created.
Step 5: Create a Scheduled Event
Scheduled Maintenance Events show up on status pages and dashboard to let your team or customers know of any planned maintenance activity you have for your project.
Therefore, we click on “Create New Event” and provide the configuration settings for our scheduled maintenance event.
Maintenance Name will be, let’s say: “Scheduled Maintenance“
You can select your monitors specifically by unchecking “Select All Monitors” and clicking on “Add Monitor” to select your monitor from the dropdown.
You can provide. a Maintenance Description, let’s say: “Test Description“
Let’s provide a future date and see how it looks like on Status Page.
Therefore, we selected the start date as March 9th and end date as 10th.
There are a few more configuration settings available, which are pretty self-explanatory.
Let’s click on “Create”.
That’s it…Your Future Scheduled Event is successfully created.
Now, let’s go to the status page and see how it looks like.
All your future scheduled events information is located below.
You can click on it to know more details about it.
Let’s make it an Ongoing Scheduled Event and also add Investigation notes to it.
Therefore, we need to edit our Scheduled Maintenance Event and add an ongoing date.
Let’s click on it and select the date as, “March 8th” and click on “Update“.
We have to view our Scheduled Maintenance Event and click on the “Notes” tab to add an Investigation Note to it.
Therefore, let’s click on “Add Investigation Note” and select our Maintenance State, let’s say “Update“.
And Investigation note will be “Test Investigation note” and click on “Save“.
Our Scheduled Event is updated and currently active.
Let’s view the Status Page again!
All our ongoing Scheduled Event information is located above.
You can click on it, to know more details about it.
So, that’s how easily you can add Scheduled Events to your Status Page on Fyipe.
