Add several map items at once in a map

In version 7.3 we were able to add several graphs (of sensors) at once in the map editor. (Add Map Item, then select several sensors to add from the sensor list.)

In version 8, when adding a map item, there is the navigator with the sensor tree, then we have to select the object we wan to add. Is there any way to select several objects please?

Thank you.

Currently V8 does not have this feature, sorry. We are trying to bring it back soon!

Thank you for the answer. My question was posted 8 months ago, now we are using PRTG Network Monitor v8.4.2.2381, does it contain the feature allowing to add several items at once in a map now?

Thank you.

You still cannot add multiple objects to maps with one single drag. However, using the drag&drop functionality, adding multiple items to the map, one after each other, is really easy.

Thank you. Let's suppose I have a device with 20 bandwidth sensors and I would like to add all of them in a map. I would like to use 2-days small fonts graph, of size 250 x 350. I still need to go on the left select the sensor i want, then go on the right side select under graph the 2-days small fonts graph, add it on the map, then resize it... Then do the same 20 times.. There is no other way to do this? scripting or else? because I need to do this for a large amount of devices with several bandwidth sensors each, therefore it will really be a gain of time if I could do it faster. (script, batch, edit html of maps?)

Thank you very much.

I'm afraid the only other option would be to use the map-object which adds graphs for all sensors of a device/group (up to 50 items) from "Graphs"->"Live Graphs for Groups/Devices"/"2 days for Groups/Devices"/"30 days for Groups/Devices"/"365 days for Groups/Devices".
