With last week being just four days, we decided to tackle some small quality-of-life changes we know people have been dying to see.
After our recent introduction of follow-up actions as a mechanism for tracking post-incident tasks, we've seen an uptick in people exporting their actions into external issue trackers.
If you're a Jira power-user, you may have struggled to export your actions if the project or issue type you were exporting into required custom fields.
After digging into Jira's API and getting to grips with the various different field types and auto-completes, we now support custom fields of whatever form you may have configured, all inside the incident.io dashboard:
Exporting actions into backlog issues is something we do ourselves at incident.io, pushing our post-incident tasks into Linear. We keep track of the link between your incident action and the external issue, and sync action states/assignees so incident.io reflects the current state of the issue.
Doing this allows us to provide you insight on how well you're actioning your incident follow-ups. View a summary of outstanding follow-ups in your dashboard or export to a CSV if you want to crunch the numbers yourself.
We'll be looking to do more with this data in future. Watch this space!
Loads of our users want to hook into incident creation to and customise the messaging given to responders, perhaps offering guidance or advice that might be useful to help get started.
As of this week, you can configure your incidents to:
You can control the message and invites in your settings page:
That config would create incidents like this:
We want incident.io to be fully adaptable for your organisation's processes, as everyone has different wants and needs when it comes to running incidents.
These two features are a preview of a more powerful and general concept we want to build into the product, something we're calling workflows. We expect to roll these settings into workflows once it's ready, so watch this space!
If you want to follow this work or see what we plan on hitting next, we've updated our product roadmap with our most recent plans.
Please send us any feedback or suggestions of what you'd like to see us build in the Slack community- we always want to hear from our users!
