Status Notification Changes Coming to Compose


tl;dr: We've migrated to another status page provider. So, if you're already subscribing to the Compose Status page for maintenance notifications, we're asking you to resubscribe.

You might have read the previous blog post where we informed users of our recent status changes. We weren't happy with the notification service we were providing to users, so we decided to up our game and move to a system that we hope you'll like better.

What does this mean? If you're a current subscriber to the Compose status page, you'll need to resubscribe to receive any planned or emergency maintenance events.

To subscribe or resubscribe to get status updates, click here for the status page and click the Subscribe to Updates button in the upper right-hand corner of that page. Once you've clicked the subscribe button, you'll get a pop-up window where you can subscribe to updates in four ways: by email, an SMS message, webhooks, or through an RSS feed. You'll also get a link directing you to our help documentation.

If, for example, you're managing your existing subscription with an email address after resubscribing or subscribing for the first time, click on the Subscribe to Updates button. That will take you to your status page where you will select the regions that you want to subscribe or unsubscribe to. All regions are selected by default. You will have to uncheck an entire region or specific portals in a region if you want to opt out of receiving those notifications. After removing regions or portals that you don't want updates for, there is an Update Preferences button at the bottom of the page you need to click to confirm any changes made on the subscription page.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our support team to let us know.
