If you've had any downtime in the past, backfilling your page with previous incidents helps your page not look empty.

We prompt you to backfill incidents during the product tour when you first join StatusPage, but you can do this anytime.

Backfilling incidents

1. Navigate to Incidents from the left sidebar. 
2. Click Create incident.
3. Click Backfill an incident on the top of the form.

4. Enter an Incident name, description, and set the date the incident occurred.
5. Click Backfill incident.

Backfilled incidents will appear in the "Past incidents" section at the bottom of your status page.

Adding backfilled incidents will not notify any subscribers.
