Dear lemac2,

Thank you for your support request.

We have to differentiate your request to the following possibilities.
PRTG offers to:

  • configure a location with PRTG's Geo Maps (useful for several remote branches).
  • configure device comments for plain text information (useful for information like room numbers etc.). Comments can be added on the Comments-button in the upper button-line, next to Log, Settings and Notifications.
  • external redirection to a configured Service URL of a device. If you configure the Service URL you will be able to access the device's web interface through the context menu of a device (right click) | Device Tools | Go To Service URL....

    If you got any particular questions, I will be happy to help.
