PRTG Android Widgets, Cant select from more than 4 channels.



Your Vote:



Hi Guys, i think i might have landed on a bug with the Widgets,

When i have more than 4 sensor channels selected for widget use i can only select from the first 4 that i choose when i try to actually add the widget to one of my screen pages, is this by design or is it a bug?

is anyone else able to use more than 4 channels at a time for widgets and be able to select from any of those channels when adding a widget?

Thanks, Alex.

Hi Alex,

I tested it on my end with more than 4 channels and had no issue listing more than 4 in the "Add widget" dialogue. In case you have the latest version of the app running, contact us by email ([email protected]) with a few more details like the Android version you're running, which launcher you're using (in case you're using a custom launcher) and maybe a screenshot of the dialogue when trying to add the widget and which smartphone it is (Samsung Galaxy Sx or whatever).

Thank you & Kind regards,
