Renaming a sensor for maps



I'm making a public map for our users, and I want to change the display name of each sensor. We have a very specific naming scheme for our administrators (eg. "Server1 - Ping"), but we'd like this to show up as, for example, "Server1 Status" on the public map.

Is there any way to change the display name for sensors on a map?

you would need to use map-objects without the names, and then manually use the "HMTL Before/After"-Fields to apply your own "descriptions".

best regards.
