Add notes & deploys

Keep track of changes to your site and deploys. Here's how to add and edit notes in your charts – either manually or with our Deploy API.

Adding notes is a great way to keep a track of changes you're making to your site and then correlating them to any performance changes you're seeing.

Notes are shown on your charts as a vertical line.

Add a note manually

To manually add a note, you can click on any point on a chart and then select "Add Note".

You can also go to your Settings page to add or edit existing notes.


Adding a note via Settings

Important to know

  • When you add a new note via a chart, the note will be applied only to the site being tracked in that chart.
  • When you add a new note via your Settings page, by default the note will be applied to your charts for all the sites you're testing. You can opt to specify an individual site. Then the note will only be applied to charts for that site.

Specifying the site a note is for

Add a note automatically after each deploy

You can also use our Deploy API to let us know each time a deploy is pushed to production. As part of the API call you can add a note to track how deploys are affecting performance. This is particularly helpful if you've integrated synthetic testing into your continuous integration / delivery (CI/CD) process.
