tree structure organized not based on probes



we have a tree structure (unit- department - area- node)

to reach some "special nodes" we have to place in the area a remote probe - but the "sensors, servers,.." still should be displayed under the area and not on top level .. how is this possible (or can you make this possible)

Ps: nice would be some virtual group feature ... where then the groups/devices are placed where it makes more sense from a "user point of view" and not from a probe/technical necessary

Due to our tree structure and the inheriting of various parameters to lower groups it's not possible to change the level of the remote probes in the device tree, but considered for a future version of PRTG.

We do not have an official roadmap or have an ETA, sorry. But please have a look at the blog article provided by our CEO.
