Alert description



Hi all

we just looked for an option how we could describe an alert which has been reported by PRTG. Is it possible to add a custom note to a log entry (e.g. a sensor down message) to reproduce this alert in future? For example if we have a down message and this alert has been generated by a provider link failure, the comment could be "Provider link failure". This would help us to classify the alerts for future use.

Thank you Markus Albisser

Dear Markus,

this is not yet possible, but we have it on the wish-list and your vote has been counted.

best regards.
