Save "sort" on Alarms Page



This question is regarding the Alarm page "Sensors With Status Down (Partial)". You can get there by clicking hovering over Alarms, then selecting Errors Only. The question is, can you save the way this screen is sorted? By default, it seems to be sorted in chronological order by "Down for", with the oldest being at the top. If you click on Status, it will sort by status. We would like to have it save so that "Down" statuses are at the top. Ideally, a link that would link to it being already sorted by status. Is this possible?

saving the sorting there would only be possible by either a browser bookmark, or using the "Make this my Homepage"-Feature in PRTG. Before you do this, please add the


to the URL and then save it as a bookmark (for example). The URL should then look like:


The - (minus) inverts the sorting. This depends on which ordering you'd like.

best regards.

Thank you very much for taking the time to reply. I had tried something similar, but must have been off on the syntax. Your reply worked perfectly. Thanks again!
