Incident List View

A bird's-eye view of all the incidents your team has encountered

Incidents signify problems or issues that require attention and resolution. When triggered on services, an escalation policy prompts notifications to be sent to on-call responders, who are responsible for promptly mitigating the issue.

The Incident List provides a convenient, single-glance view of all your incidents and their relevant information.

Note: To view the Incident List for a specific team, simply select the desired team from the team picker located at the top.

Incident Status Sections

This section lists all the incidents of your team for the selected time period. You can select one or more incidents to perform bulk actions. Note: This also includes all the Suppressed incidents.

Trigger an Incident

Depending on your specific use case, there are multiple methods available to trigger incidents in Squadcast:


A common practice is to integrate with third-party platforms, like monitoring tools, and configure them to trigger incidents in Squadcast when certain conditions are met.

To learn more, visit our Integrations Library.

You can trigger an incident and promptly notify the on-call responder by manually opening an incident on a service. This method is commonly used to test notification rules or to directly inform the on-call person about an issue with a particular service.

By leveraging the ability to create incidents from the mobile app, you have the ability to trigger an incident on the go.

We natively integrate with various tools. If you're using an integration that isn't listed, but the tool supports webhook-based integration, you can utilize our incident webhook integration. This integration can also be leveraged for triggering incidents in your internal services based on your specific use case.

You can expand your customer support, by letting your stakeholders & customers report issues that trigger incidents in Squadcast.

By leveraging email integration for a service, you have the ability to trigger an incident simply by sending an email to the designated email address associated with the integration.

If your account has the Slack integration configured, you may also trigger an incident using Slack slash commands.
