Loss of feature access for some accounts

Details

Hey there! We have 52 customers without access to multiple areas across Drift. A process was executed to terminate video subscriptions that had cancelled, and accidentally included some active customers on our FY22 plan.

The team is working to reactivate these FY22 customers, along with users and integrations on these accounts.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

About Our Drift Status Page Integration

Drift is a Marketing solution that StatusGator has been monitoring since September 2018. Over the past about 4 years, we have collected data on on more than 221 outages that affected Drift users. When Drift publishes downtime on their status page, they do so across 3 components and 3 groups using 4 different statuses: up, warn, down, and maintenance which we use to provide granular uptime metrics and notifications.

Many StatusGator users monitor Drift to get notified when it's down, is under maintenance, or has an outage. We've sent more than 500 notifications to our users about Drift incidents, providing transparency and peace of mind. You can get alerts by signing up for a free StatusGator account.

If Drift is having system outages or experiencing other critical issues, red down notifications appear on the status page. In most cases, it means that core functions are not working properly, or there is some other serious customer-impacting event underway.

Warn notifications are used when Drift is undergoing a non-critical issue like minor service issues, performance degradation, non-core bugs, capacity issues, or problems affecting a small number of users.

Drift posts separate notifications for planned maintenance work. StatusGator will notify subscribers when Drift enters a pre-planned maintenance window, keeping you up to date.

Drift does not publish a feed of proactive maintenance events on their status page at this time. If they do, be sure to let us know and we'll aggregate Drift maintenance events into your unified calendar.

When Drift posts issues on their status page, we collect the main headline message and include that brief information or overview in notifications to StatusGator subscribers.

When Drift has outages or other service-impacting events on their status page, we pull down the detailed informational updates and include them in notifications. These messages often include the current details about how the problem is being mitigated, or when the next update will occur.

Because Drift has several components, each with their individual statuses, StatusGator can differentiate the status of each component in our notifications to you. This means, you can filter your status page notifications based on the services, regions, or components you utilize. This is an essential feature for complex services with many components or services spread out across many regions.
