SMS Notifications



Hi Everyone,

I am looking to setup SMS notifications so that the managers' of our Monitoring teams can get SMS notifications when they are out of office. It is more convenient to them to have the SMS option instead of emails when they are on the go. Texts are just easy and simple.

My question is: How would I set this up? - Is there anyway I can have the email notifications go to SMS?
I don't need the SMS setup in case of a network outage as we have multiple Internet Lines and Staff who can call us in emergency situations, so I would rather not pay for a real SMS service if I can avoid it.

You'll have to configure new notifications that have a schedule applied that matches the out of office times. PRTG itself does not feature mail-to-sms and you'll have to use a mail-to-sms provider.
