Can I globally change refresh frequency of Ping Sensor



I want to change the refresh rate from once every 30 seconds to say once every 5 minutes, for all ping sensors in a group of servers. Can this be done globally without opening the properites of each ping sensor on each server in a group?

ping prtg8 sensors

in the web interface go to Sensors -> By Group and select the group you wabt to make the changes for.

Then add


at the end of the URL in the browser to select only the ping sensors.

Then use multi edit to change the interval for all of them
