  1. Monitoring info at scale

    Hello!
    https://fluid.services/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/stats1.jpg
    It would be nice if some of these stats could be displayed
    https://fluid.services/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/stats3.jpg
    in this area when looking at all servers
    i have a bunch of servers now and it would just make my life easier to see some of that info at scale
    and I'd be more likely to upgrade something (more money for you guys) if I can see it all in a list like that
    that's it! Just wanted to pass it along as something to consider down the line! I'd consider it a quality of life improvement for customers with multiple servers :)

  2. Option to password protect application

    Hey, I can't believe I have to say it but this is kind of a basic feature of any hosting solution. This is a small but extremely essential feature so please add it to the console. We should be able to password protect an application on live and staging sites.

  3. Uninstall New Relic option on Settings & Packages >> Packages

    I would like to kindly suggest an option on "Settings & Packages --> Packages" to "Uninstall New Relic" from our servers, and this would automatically remove all those NR scripts on that server.

    I keep wondering how much Live Chat & Tickets it could save to Cloudways! This would save so many resources!

  4. Add ability to schedule automatic server shutdown/enable

    Add ability to schedule automatic server shutdown/enable.

    If i have a server that i know is only required to be used during regular business hours, but i dont want it accessible or paying for it during non-business hours, I'd like to automatically schedule it to go offline and then come back online later.

    IE: i want to shut it down every day at 1am and bring it back online at 6am, without having to do it manually.

  6. Allow a team member to have SFTP access to multiple applications without requiring to create multiple SFTP accounts

    Would like an easy way for the account owner to create SFTP/SSH account (login/password) creation for team members and then assign those accounts to various servers/applications.

    Account owner should be able to delete/disable/suspend account, but the team members don't need to setup or activate their own account.

  8. Allow agencies to invoice their customers directly from Cloudways Platform by setting up recurring invoices

    Cloudways should provide agencies with a feature that allows agencies to manage their clients and charge them directly from the Cloudways Platform by setting up recurring invoices. There should be a central dashboard where agencies can manage all their clients and invoices

  10. Display the access status on applications page

    In the application overview page: https://platform.cloudways.com/apps it would be usual to highlight whether application access has been disabled. Very handy when managing many applications with different statuses. Example mockup: https://ibb.co/mbJzTw

  11. Add tmux to terminal

    Would be nice to have a tmux sessions to use one connection to a server. This will become more popular when you add the load balancing some of infrastructures may hide child nodes from internet, but use the internal network instead

  12. Force git pull deploys

    Be able to force a git pull deploy. When you try to deploy a significant change in the app code you get merge errors, that could be avoided if the pulls were forced.

  15. Add custom application logo support

    The ability to change the application logo would be nice. A list of WordPress sites with very little differentiation in the console right now hinders workflow to some degree.

  19. Cloudways Support Ticketing Platform should work independently.

    Whenever I click any customer support response link received on our email like this- http://tickets.cloudways.com/hc/requests/60596 , it first asks me to open and login 'Cloudways Console Platform' and then it opens the server dashboard, then I need to click help button on the top left, then 'create ticket' and then my activities to see my support tickets.

    Why can't we directly login to https://tickets.cloudways.com to check our support ticket?

    Kindly work on this process flow.

    Thanks.

  20. Show Varnish authentication key in the console

    I followed the below guide for setting up Varnish with Magento and had to ask support for my Varnish Authentication Key.

    Could this show in the console or something?
