Is it possible to add a begin time/date and end time/date to Schedules?



When performing maintenance on a system, I will "Pause" Notifications to prevent a flood of emails on machines I know are being serviced. Sometime, I forget to "Resume" and then we don't get any notifications.

The addition of a start and end date for schedules would allow me to set the maintenance window for a specific time period versus having it reoccur each week.

thank you very much for your KB-Post. You could use the "Maintenance Window"-function now in PRTG, on the "Settings" of the device/group that is undergoing maintenance. This will pause all sensors, and so subsequently all notifications. But the sensors will be automatically resumed upon the end of the window.


best regards.

Thank you, that was exactly what I was looking for.
