searching in PRTG windows GUI



Is it possible to do a search in the PRTG Windows Gui like you can in the web interface, and if not, is there a way to sort the devices by name and not by ip address?

Here is the problem, I would like one of our users to be able to do some simple maintenance and upkeep, but they know each location by the physical address (Name in PRTG = 2500 W 28th St) and not the ip address itself. So I need a way for them to easily find a device using the physical address, we currently have 100+ devices for her to scroll through and try to find the matching one.

Thanks for the help.

Best Regards.

I have the same problem, not being able to sort is a major downfall of this product.
