No, Freshstatus doesn't monitor checks.
Freshstatus, Status page is made to control the communication you send out to the customers. You can create incidents and scheduled maintenances, change service statuses (and name them the way you want), pro-actively email your customers about incidents. All updates are manual.
While our other product, Freshping (https://www.freshworks.com/website-monitoring/) is an automated monitoring tool. Freshping's status page is automated. It reflects the status of the monitored websites or servers.
