Email Notification Template Updates

The default HTML email notification templates have been updated to ensure compatibility with all of the popular mail clients.

In previous versions, the templates used a plain-text block to display the update message. This caused some mail clients to ignore the line breaks. Our new templates use pure HTML and line breaks are replaced with BR tags.

View the updated default templates here.

Updating Your Custom Templates

If you have customized your templates, the templates will continue to work and will use the original plain-text block. To update your custom templates, replace the following variables:

 

Incident Template:

UPDATEMESSAGE is now INCIDENTMESSAGE

 

Maintenance Template:

MAINTENANCEMESSAGE is now INCIDENTMESSAGE

 

Maintenance Reminder Template:

MAINTENANCEDETAILS is now MAINTENANCEREMINDERMESSAGE

Enhanced Container Layouts

Containers are displayed below each component on a status page. The containers represent data centers, physical locations, cloud providers or any other grouping that makes sense for your unique system.

When we launched Status.io, containers were displayed in a vertical list below each component. Since then, we’ve experimented with different layouts and observed how our customers were customizing their status pages to learn more about the optimal display.

To make it easier to modify the container layout, we’ve released a new design setting to choose the layout thats works best for you. Choose to display containers in either horizontal, vertical or vertical expanded layouts.

Check out the examples below to see each layout in action.

 

Horizontal Layout

 

Vertical Expanded Layout

 

Vertical Condensed Layout

 

Modify the container layout from the Design/Advanced tab in the Dashboard. Learn more about container display options in our Knowledge Base.
