OnPage now allows administrators to configure Delay Notifications on the on-call web management console. When a Delay Notification schedule is active, OnPage queues all messages that are sent during specified times or “delay hours.” These OnPage messages are only delivered to users at the end of the Delay Notification schedule.
Message Notes on Report Console
The OnPage reporting console now allows users to compose incident notes. Transcribe what occurred during the incident and detail when critical events were resolved. OnPage message notes are fully downloadable and perfect for post-incident analysis.
On-Call Schedule Exceptions
On-call schedule exception comes in handy when a user needs to switch on-call times with another user for a specific time frame or when a system administrator wants to make exception to a recurring schedule for a date range. At the end of the schedule exception, the original schedule reverts back.
The integration combines the power of Dynatrace’s cloud monitoring capabilities with OnPage critical, high-priority alerts. When Dynatrace detects problems in cloud infrastructures, it will automatically trigger an OnPage mobile alert to ensure the issues are resolved promptly.
Just Released: Two-Factor Authentication on Management Console
Two-factor authentication adds a layer of security when you log in to an OnPage account. Authentication requires you to log in with a password and an additional security measure (e.g., a security code that is delivered to your login email address). Administrators may set the system to authenticate the login account on each login, every eight hours, or once per day. This two-step login process prevents up to 98 percent of phishing attacks.
Amazon CloudWatch Integration
The integration enables Amazon CloudWatch to trigger OnPage high-priority, mobile notifications, when it detects anomalous or critical cloud activities. The integration minimizes the time it takes to identify and respond to incidents occurring in AWS resources or applications.
Hand-Offs and On-Call Reminders
Before an on-call shift begins, tasked persons will receive an on-call reminder alert on the OnPage app. OnPage on-call reminders prevent on-call shifts from being forgotten.
The hand-off feature can be turned ON/OFF enterprise-wide and can be further individualized per user preferences. The system default for reminders are set to “Always Send Reminders,” “30 Minutes in Advance” to shift start, and the reminder priority is “Low.”
Reminders can be configured exclusively on the OnPage Enterprise Gold package! Want to learn more? Contact us!

OnPage BlastIT: Mass Notification for Emergency and Crisis Management
OnPage’s mass notification feature enables administrators to quickly and easily update users before, during and following any type of potential threats or crisis events.
OnPage allows companies to keep their employees, vendors and clients informed of any critical situation while maintaining rock-solid communications.
Designed to visually represent which contacts are “online,” “offline” and on “Do-Not-Page” mode, this feature keeps users informed on who is available during critical situations.
This not only makes collaboration easy, but is also helpful during times when a user is supposed to get alerted but are either offline or have set the app to Do-Not-Page mode.
It also ensures accountability because users can see that the person being alerted is definitely online and should be available for a response. This feature is available on Android devices; the iOS version is coming soon.
