place holders for notifcations



is there a place holder for the parent group? i currently have each tower in its own group, but then within each tower i have folders for backhauls, access points, power, and servers.

However when stuff goes down im getting a notification for %group %device %sensor %status %message

I would like a %parentgroup tag or something like that so i can get the main folder which would be the tower name so we would get notification with what tower is having an issue.

thanks for the help

Unfortunately at this time, there is no way to have the parent group included in the notifications but this is something that is on the wishlist and is something that we do plan on creating.
