PagerDuty Community Update, January 19 2024

It’s update time!

Our newest release of the PagerDuty application for ServiceNow is live! Check out the details and watch the demo roundup here

Additionally, Intelligent Dashboards are now officially SUNSET. You’ll find your links to the old dashboards redirected to the new Dashboard features (find them under Analytics->Dashboard in your account). This sunset is another big step towards consolidating the Analytics Information Architecture from a UX perspective and the tech stack from an engineering perspective so we’ll be better able to keep delivering great improvements!
