  1. Simple Interface improvement...for bandwidth utilisation.

    In the Server Monitoring page:

    https://platform.cloudways.com/server/*yourservernumber*/monitor

    Bandwidth used per month is currently stated alone. It would be much easier if bandwidth used was expressed as a fraction or a percentage of the total bandwidth available on the existing server package.

    Eg.

    Bandwidth usage this month is X GB of Y Gb available. X/Y x 100 = Z% used.

  2. Create staging site from backup

    Problem: Right now I have to use a third party backup solution because Cloudways built in backup solution is incomplete.

    Solution: Allow users to restore a backup as a separate application or staging site. This allows us to easily see what the website looked like at any point in the past when a regression issue happens. Also allow us to download backups, so we can pull out specific files from the past without having to revert the database and loose eCommerce order data.

  3. Allow the option to create a project while creating and app

    n some cases we've forgotten to create a project before setting up the app, and would be nice to have to option to create one on the spot and assign it to the app that's being created.

  4. Remove 3 character minimum from application and project names

    In our case we often use 2 letter client codes for project names (e.g. AB) and it becomes a problem when naming projects and apps. Even reducing to a 2 character minimum would be ideal.

  5. Add Team Members to Projects & Give Permissions to Applications on Projects

    I would like to add a team member(s) to a project so that when applications or added or removed from that project, the permissions for that team member to access that application are correspondingly added or removed.

  7. Purge old log files from server in one click

    Old log files take a lot of disk space. It would be great if we can remove all old log files from the Control Panel.

  8. Apps List Should Show Actual App Name as Server Sees It

    Basically when I run htop on the server my aliased app name is not going to show, but the actuall server app name... i.e. qgvzzgjjzt vs ApplicationName.

    So in the screen where you list apps -
    https://platform.cloudways.com/apps

    it would be good to have the list also show the non-aliased app name.

  9. Account activity log

    I would like to see an account activity log. This could hold information including date and times, details of the activity, reference names used for - creating, modifying and deleting servers
    - creating, modifying and deleting applications
    - any activity that results in a cost to the billing account

    I see this feature as useful for general reference but also for reconciling account invoices.

  10. Allow sorting by usage within new disk quota report

    The new Disk Usage Per Application report is great, but it's missing an obvious feature to allow this list to be sorted by usage.

  12. Remove Users from Delete Accounts

    Allow users to remove themselves from other people's accounts.

    As well, automatically remove people from canceled accounts, as it is then impossible to remove yourself from the account.

  13. Don't update domain names in my database without asking first.

    I recently changed my domain name from example.com to www.example.com using the Domain Management settings, and unfortunately every email address in my WordPress database changed from name@example.com to name@www.example.com. I'm perfectly capable of running my own search/replace on the database if necessary, but I get that not everyone can, so this isn't a terrible feature. But it would be great to add a couple of checkbox options: [ ] Update instances of domain name in database? [ ] Update email addresses as well?

  14. Simpler sign-in with Google

    At the moment Google sign-in is there and works, but can be improved for a smoother dashboard experience. There are 2 things which can be improved upon:

    - the session doesn't last after the CloudWays browser tab is closed. If CloudWays got a oauth token from Google platform, it should keep the session until the token is revoked or manual log out
    - using too many permissions. At sign-in time only the profile_basic and profile_email should be requested, simplifying the login process. When someone tries to use Google Sign-In, they first choose the account, then approve the app (CloudWays), then…

    Thank you for contributing your valuable suggestions.

    We already have started working on minimizing the scope of Google service permissions.

    Your other feedback about sessions has been added to our Product Improvement Ideas list, and we will incorporate it in upcoming quarters.

    Test - Servers ( 2 Servers )
    - Server 1 Test1

  17. Clone application settings

    When you clone an application, you should have an option to clone also:
    - Application credentials
    - Domains
    - Cron Jobs
    - SSL Certificates
    - Application settings
    - CDN settings

    At the moment, the Application Cloning process only clones the files+database, with the result that the app is working but then you have to duplicate all those settings manually in the Platform.

  18. Advanced Search Control in Cloudways Account Panel

    I think the search tool could be improved by adding the ability to search by IP address. Filters to show only certain servers, etc would also be welcome.

  19. Tab focus for the 2FA box

    It's only a small thing but when logging in using 2FA the tab focus isn't on the code box so it's another click to enter the code. All of the other systems I use focus the 2FA code box so it's something I'm used to.

  20. install netdata app resource monitor

    Standard free and essential. We need this!
    https://my-netdata.io/

    Currently I want to migrate high CPU usage apps to a new server - but I cannot tell which apps are using more resources.

    The result is lost income for cloudways and poor performance for users ;(
