Using the app with Uptime

If you'd like to get notified right away on your mobile device, you're at the right place. By configuring the push notifications, you can immediately get an incident notification with our iOS and Android apps. Sounds good? Let's share the how-to steps.

Connecting iOS and Android Uptime apps:

  1. Go to Integrations -> Exporting data and select the app you want to configure. Alternatively, you can download it directly from Google Play or App store.
  2. Once downloaded, connect the app to your account via the QR code in your account settings by scanning it from your Uptime app.

Configuring the push notifications on your monitors

After you've configured your mobile device as a receiver, you also need to include push notifications in your monitor's settings.

You can do that by going to the monitor's configuration -> On-call escalation -> When there's a new incident -> Push notification.

iOS app adjustments & Critical alerts

Focusing on deep work or in a meeting, but want to get alerted when something goes wrong?

The Uptime iOS app has been issued a special entitlement to Critical alerts, which allow the app to ignore the mute switch and Do Not Disturb mode.

  • Open the app
  • Click on the dots on the right side
  • Select Configure notifications
  • Find the option Critical alerts and turn the switch on.

Furthermore, you can also select the type of notifications you'd like to receive, enable/disable the sound, etc.
