In this post, I will explain how to add Scheduled Events to your Status Page?

Step 1: Create a component

Click on “Create Component” below
Click on “Create Component” below

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

Enter “New Component” name
Enter “New Component” name

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”.

Enter Monitor name and click on “Website”
Enter Monitor name and click on “Website

Now, we need to provide the URL of our website, that will be “google.com

Enter "Website URL"
Enter “Website URL

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.
