Hello, we appreciate your contact.
This can be achieved using Libraries. Within PRTG, Libraries are special views of your device tree with up-to-the-minute monitoring status information, arranged the way you want it. They can be either manually arranged or using built-in filters:

  • Filter By Type
  • Filter By Status
  • Filter By Tags
  • Filter By Priority

Once you've created the library, you can configure the notification there, that way it will apply to all objects within the library.
