Change PRTG Sensor List



Is there a way within PRTG to change the order of sensors? For example, we have a list of servers, ie: MAIL1, MAIL2, SQL1, SQL2, and then we add MAIL3. We'd like MAIL1/MAIL2/MAIL3 to be together. They are all within the same Group in PRTG.

To change the order of sensors on a device or the order of devices in a group, in the PRTG web interface, right-click on an object and then select Move from the context menu. Several options are available there.

If you have many devices you want to move, we recommend using the Windows GUI for this task, as it offers device movements via drag&drop.
