Custom alert box



Is there a way to create or modify the map "down alert" box to show ONLY "status | device name"? Simple " down | device1 ". The current alerts have sensor name and the customer wants " status | device name" (2 fields).

Dear Michael,

to which exact map-object are you referring to? Basically with editing the HTML-File which "serves" for the map-object it should be possible to remove unwanted columns.

Best Regards.

Map Objects / data tables / Alarms - has "down since", "sensor", "status", "message". Want to change it (or create a new alert table) to alert down "status" and " device" fields.

As said, that should be possible by editing the html-file: How can I add or edit map objects used for PRTG's maps?
