Setup process

Enable alerts

When setting up your monitors, check the option to “Generate Alerts.” If you need help, jump over to the Uptrends Academy.

Define the alert

From the Alerts menu, select “Add Alert Definition.” Name the alert, and choose the monitor or monitors for the alert.

Pick an alert method

Decide who gets the alert and how. Options include e-mail, SMS/text, phone/voice, Uptrends mobile apps, integrated services like Slack and PagerDuty, or use webhooks.

Escalate as needed

With up to four levels of escalations, you can decide who needs to respond and when based on error duration and duty schedules.

Alerts that fit your schedule

Uptrends keeps the right people informed at the right times by following your work schedules. By setting up your operator duty shifts in your Uptrends account, you can get the message to the correct, on duty personnel. No more interrupted dinners or late-night phone calls when it isn’t your turn.

Flexible escalations

Sometimes an error can wait, and other times you need to act fast. With escalations, you can send the message up the support chain (up to four escalation levels), or you can change the notification from say email to a text message or any of Uptrends' other alert methods.

Define alerts that work for you

Trigger alerts based on performance, maximum and minimum page or element sizes, or missing content. When Uptrends detects your error conditions, escalations allow you to decide how to handle the error. With each level of escalation, you can decide to send an alert message based on how long the error condition lasts, or by the number of errors. You can send reminders if the error continues, and you can change the alerting method or alert recipients.

By the way, do you know that you get error snapshots in your check detail reports for your HTTPS availability monitors? Error snapshots go a long way towards troubleshooting page related issues, and remember, you can add screenshots to all of your Web Application Monitoring steps.

Advanced Alerting Options

Don’t limit yourself to text and email alerts

Beyond the basics of text and email alerts, with Uptrends, you get the option to receive alerts through mobile apps, voice alerts, and integration.

Push notifications

Using Uptrends' mobile apps for iOS and Android, you can get your alerts and know what is happening with your websites at anytime from anywhere.

Voice alerts

When was the last time an email woke you in the middle of the night? Exactly! Sometimes the most effective method is the simplest. With voice/phone alerts, as long as you have an active cell signal you will know the moment problems come up.


With third-party integration, webhooks, and Uptrends' API, your notification options are almost limitless. Uptrends has support built in for popular services like Slack and PagerDuty, or use webhooks to connect to services not on our list. You can also use our API to get your monitor statuses and more.
