Your feedback drives our design process. Your votes count! Let us know what you want to see from the DigitalOcean cloud.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Better graph support that makes since

    See average and totals in graphs too. Horizontal green line showing current level red showing the average high
    It would be nice to show patterns, though I know as a programmer this can be a pain to dev there are tons of plugins that already do it.

    • Datacenter in South Africa

      It would be great to see a datacenter in South Africa. - http://www.100tb.com/blog/2013/02/data-center-africa/

        • Provide Group Subtotals in Invoices

          Many of us manage cloud machines for a variety of projects, each of which has to be invoiced separately. It would be very convenient if we could easily tabulate all the costs incurred by the subsets of machines used for particular projects, rather than having all the machines lumped together.

          • User templates for faster deploy.

            It would be nice to be able to save selected parameters when creating your droplet (OS, region, VM type), as a template and then deploy new droplet with a click of the button, just ask for the name of the new droplet.

              • Allow for (D)DoS protection status to be checked in an API call

                Hi,

                I think it should be possible to check whether your service has been temporarily disabled due to an incoming (D)DoS attack, and possibly the time at which your service will be restored.

                While one would hope that it wouldn't be a necessary feature all of the time, an automatic notification to our users would be much easier and more elegant than your service vanishing for what (for them) would appear to be a random cause.

                • Make sure email notification of drop creation occurs after process is complete.

                  I noticed that the drop creation process was still in progress at the moment I received an email indicating the successful creation of the droplet. It would be helpful to receive the email only *after* the process is complete.

                      • Show the image ID on the Images page

                        I'm probably missing something, but the fastest way to figure out the Image ID (to use on API calls) is to inspect the HTML on the Images page...

                        • Fix ambiguity in credit card name box

                          The light grey text in the box said something like "Enter name for credit card". I wasn't sure whether you meant "Enter the name that is on this credit card" or "Make up your mnemonic for this credit card" like "My Visa Card" to distinguish it from "My MasterCard". I guessed the former, but you could tweak the grey text to make it less ambiguous. Thanks!

                          • make explicit which droplet is successfully destroyed

                            When destroying a droplet you have a nice message telling you that you have successfully destroyed a droplet.

                            It would be even more helpful if this message would include the name of the droplet here...

                              Invoices must have correct attributes attributes like Firm name, Firm address and VAT number. Currently no one European goverment Tax/revenue department will accept invoices without these attributes.
                              Dates also can be set to be displayed in EU format DD/MM/YYYY

                              • Modify the page title at cloud.digitalocean.com to reflect current tool being displayed

                                Actually it only displays "DigitalOcean Control Panel" and it's not very useful, in the history it's a bit hard to go back to a specific page.
                                Instead you could display "Droplets - DigitalOcean Control Panel", "MyDropletName - DigitalOcean Control Panel", "SSH Keys - DigitalOcean Control Panel", etc.

                                    • Assume we might want to use Virtual Hosts in WordPress one-click install

                                      The current WordPress one-click install is pretty nice. However, I recently wanted to add a "staging" environment to the same host. The one-click install puts everything in the /var/www directory. If you added another subdirectory (/var/www/myhostname) it would allow for an easier "upgrade" to using virtual hosts.

                                      • Include WordPress CLI as part of the one-click install

                                        There is a great little command line utility that professional WordPress developers use for installing/maintaining their WordPress installations: http://wp-cli.org This utility is so commonly used that it should be included as part of the one-click install. Better yet, the command line utility should be used as part of the installation process (and/or mentioned in the README output when you log in). Here's a tutorial which mentions a few of the things you can use it for: http://torquemag.io/using-wp-cli-to-set-up-a-test-version-of-your-site/

                                        • Droplet Marketplace

                                          Allow users to be able to create and sell (or redistribute) their snapshot into a marketplace where others can deploy from their account. Maybe put an approval system in to prevent abuse but might be a good idea to help create images/droplets that can be deployed preconfigured.

                                            We have a separate request for this, which is labelled as the ability to share images, which is in the planning stages.

                                            Security is one of the largest concerns that we had and for that we are going to working to create public profiles for the community section that customers can opt-in to and verify further with their twitter and/or github accounts.

                                            That will create more transparency around who the author of a particular image is.

                                            Since this is labelled as marketplace we didn’t want to mistakenly merge that, is all that is requested a place to share images, or some sort of actually marketplace (exchange of funds) also requested?

                                            Thanks!
