2 questions,

1. Is there a way to create a device group with autodetect based on device tags.

What I would like to do is just have a group for say Printers, and any device that gets a tag with Printer is automatically listed in that group. I would do the same for UPS's, Servers, Switches etc... Auto group by any tag in the tag list.

2. Along the same lines, can I display all the tags a device currently has without having to go into the device settings? Maybe something in the right area like the graphs.

Thanks, Chuck

1. That would exactly be the "play ground" for Libraries. Add one that filters for this particular tag.

2. Sorry, this not possible (apart from the "Settings"-Tab of course).

best regards.
