Pause website monitor

Keeping track of your website’s performance is crucial, but there are times when you need to temporarily halt monitoring without removing the website from your list. For such cases you can use the feature "Pause monitor".

How to pause website monitor

Pausing website monitoring is simple and intuitive. Follow these steps to temporarily stop status updates for any monitored website:

1. Navigate to the monitor list and find the website you wish to pause.

2. Click on the context menu (represented by three dots icon) next to the website name and choose the "Pause Monitor" option.

That’s it! The monitoring for the selected website will be paused, meaning you won’t receive status updates until you resume monitoring. The website monitor will remain in your list (on your board and status page), allowing you to easily restart monitoring when needed.

When you pause the monitoring of a website, you will see a greyed-out status tag and a pause icon on the board. This visual indication ensures you can easily identify which websites are currently not being actively monitored. On the status page, users will see the latest status, but it won't be updated during the pause, and your status page subscribers won't be notified of any status changes accordingly. 

How to resume website monitor

Once you’re ready to start receiving status updates again, simply revisit the context menu and select the "Resume Monitor" option. Your monitoring will pick up right where it left off, ensuring you stay informed about your website’s performance.
