Sometimes, you may want to record an incident after it has happened, in order to include it in your reporting and help inform your post-incident processes.

You can choose whether you'd like to announce a retrospective incident; workflows won't run either, so you don't need to worry about worrying folks unnecessarily!


1️⃣ Head to your incident.io dashboard and hit Declare incident.

2️⃣ You'll then be prompted to choose what type of incident, select Retrospective incident.

3️⃣ At this point, you'll be asked to supply some information about the retrospective incident. This will include any custom fields associated with incident types that you have set.

You can also choose whether you'd like to announce the incident by checking the box at the bottom of the modal.

4️⃣ You will then be able to add in any timestamps (you'll be able to see any custom timestamps here too!) that will help you in your post-incident process and contribute to your incident analytics.

It will be reflected in your incident.io dashboard that this is a retrospective incident, for any folks who are looking into recent incidents!

We'd love any feedback you have on this feature or any issues, you can always get in touch with us at [email protected]!
