Excluding Dates in the Tracked Pages

Help Center Reduce false positivesLast updated: 10 October, 2023

Frequently, you encounter text like "updated 1 month ago" or "last changed 1 hour ago" that continually updates on your tracked pages. While this information might seem informative, it often leads to false-positive notifications.

The "Remove dates" action

To address this issue and streamline your monitoring experience, we recommend applying the "Remove Dates" action to your tracked page. This action will intelligently detect and replace all date-related text with a standardized [DATE REMOVED] tag.

Supported Date Formats

The "Remove Dates" action is designed to handle a wide range of common date formats, including:

  • 30 min ago
  • 1 day ago
  • 19 August 2022
  • 2000
  • 01-01-2020
  • Sat Aug 17 2020 18:40:39 GMT+0000 (GMT)
  • and many more...
