Knowing your on-call status is more important than knowing if it’s raining outside. Unlike dealing with the drizzle that’s passed over San Francisco recently, if I’m on-call you need leave the house with more than an umbrella.
Your on-call status is an integral part of PagerDuty’s iOS and Android apps. We’ve also created a few new endpoints on our REST API that make getting your current on-call status more straightforward. Full documentation of these new endpoints, as always, is on our developer documentation site.
Send an Inspiration Email Reminder
Sometimes it’s useful to treat an escalation policy as a mailing list. For a particularly rough on-call rotation, this script will send an inspirational email to everyone on-call for a particular escalation policy. Animal videos are always appreciated.
A Pleasant Voice Reminder
When you have over 50 tabs open in Chrome, more text on the screen is the last thing you need. I’ve created an alias of this script so when I type “amioncall” in the terminal Mac OS X will speak my on-call status in a pleasant voice.
