How do I specify a mobile number to alert?

Normally you will want to text someone when your website is unavailable.

When creating or editing your uptime monitor, you should add a user and ensure the box labelled Text message is selected.

Once this has been selected, the user must edit their own profile to add a mobile number to alert. This can be done by clicking the small circle icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the tool and selecting My settings.

You will be asked for a mobile number, as shown below. The mobile number requires a country code to be added in order to work. If you are in the UK, this is +44 and in the US this is +1.
