Where To Find It

The easiest way to view the activity feed is via the management portal. We provide an HTML timeline for you to view recent activity, with nice Gravatar image and icons to help distinguish between activity feed types.

To access the activity feed, simply navigate using the account menu to Activity Log in the account menu dropdown. Once loaded, you'll see all of the activity feed items we have listed in descending chronological order. We don't prune any of the activity log items - this data is kept around forever.

Navigation to Recent Activity

Here's what the Activity Log looks like.

Piping to your chat program

Piping your activity feed to your chat program is a great way to keep people up to date in your organization, and gives a great real-time stream of the issues you're dealing with alongside the reflection of those issues on your status page. The interleaving of human chat and status page activity makes for great postmortem reconstruction and lets all your stakeholders stay up to date with incident response and communication.

We've centralized our linking of HipChat and Slack accounts. To enable this feature, go to the Add-on Store and click 'Enable' under ChatOps. You will then see ChatOps in your nav bar.
