Sms text works when testing but not in trigger



I have sms text notifications setup. When I test the notification it works. When I put the entry in a trigger it does not work. In the log for the sensor it states: "Threshold Trigger sending SMS (Sensor/Source/ID: 7349/7349/2)"

Hi Bill,

When you tested the notification, you did so on PRTG's notification overview page or by manually using the URL in a browser? The sensor message states that the notification got triggered correctly. If something went wrong after that, please take a look Logs | System Events | Notitications to see if there are further details about possible errors.

Kind regards,
