Supported Features

We support the following features in our integration with the Skype status page:

If Skype 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 Skype 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.

Skype does not post separate notifications for planned maintenance work so we are unable to send notifications when maintenance windows begin. If you need Skype maintenance notifications, please email us.

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

At this time, we do not collect status messages from the Skype status page. If you need this capability, please be sure to reach out.

At this time, we do not collect detailed status updates from the Skype status page. If you need this capability, please be sure to reach out.

Because Skype 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.
