February 2023: Notifications-only sub-users and 30 seconds monitor interval

As we have previously announced: Notifications-only sub-users are here!

After receiving your feedback, we realized that full-featured sub-users may not be the ideal option for everyone.

This new feature is ideal for our UptimeRobot users who want to get alerted teammates or clients but don’t want to share access to account or monitors.

You can manage your team mates and their access on the Team page. Here you can add / edit / remove seats with write, read, or notify-only access.

Notify-only users features

✔️ can receive their own notifications about incidents through email, SMS, or voice call (team owner SMS credits applied)

❌ can’t log in – don’t have access to the dashboard or any other information

Plans and packages

Unlike full-featured (login-enabled) sub-users, which are only accessible in the new Team and Enterprise plans, notification-only sub-users are also available in all the Solo plans.

You can get 3 notify-only-seats for free, included in Team plan, and 5 notify-only seats in Enterprise plan. See our Plans & pricing for details.

The price for additional notify-only seats ranges from $2 to $4 per seat per month and you can buy them here.

What’s next? 30-seconds monitoring interval!

The most advanced customers would be happy to hear that in the following days we will launch the 30 seconds monitoring interval!

That means you will be able to spot the incident 30 seconds faster than with 1-minute interval and you will be able to spot even shorter incidents!

We hope you are happy with the updates. Let us know in the comment section!

I’d like to know exactly how much the Notify Only user seats will cost, but your link in that section goes to a test website. This could tun out to be a quite expensive notification system for small companies.

Hi Peter, kindly log in to your paid account to access the pricing. If you encounter any issues, please do not hesitate to contact us through our support channel.
