The Uptrends monitors have the Test now feature. This allows for immediate testing, instead of having to wait for a test running at the set check interval only. Use the Test now button in the monitor setup for this purpose. Go to and choose the monitor you want to test to get to the monitor setup.
Until now the default checkpoint for this Test now feature was chosen based on your geolocation. This isn’t preferred in many cases.
We have improved the default checkpoint choice which is now based on the selection of checkpoints on the Checkpoints tab of the monitor. In detail this means:
- If checkpoints have been selected manually the default checkpoint will be picked from this list. Any checkpoints in private locations will be the first choice for the default checkpoint.
- If there is no manual selection, the default checkpoint is chosen from all the list of all checkpoints, based on the language or a previous choice. The previous choice persists only during the current session.
