It is possible to clone or duplicate notifications?



We are putting a new client into our PRTG monitoring. They have sites around the world and want notifications from some sites to occur only during that site's business hours. We use 4 unique notifications in general: warning to support, down to support, down to on-call and down escalation to management. With that and up to 40 unique schedules (one 24x7 and one for each TZ), it means we will need to generate 4*40=160 unique notifications. The only real difference between timezone notifications will be the schedule, all other settings will remain the same. Since we highly customize the notification content there is a large possibility of error if we have to create all 160 notifications from scratch. Is it possible to duplicate an existing notification so all we need to change is the name and attached schedule and not have to constantly mess with the html/text content?

Cloning notifications is not supported, sorry.

Why don't you assign the schedules to the monitoring objects/sensors (one group with the sensor of one timezone) instead of the notifications?
