Hi Morgano,

You can find this information on the log tab of the auto-update page. You'll find it at /autoupdate.htm?tabid=2# . Assuming each user has a unique login, you can determine if it was manual or automatic.

The default time for auto-updates is 1AM. I checked my own logs and there appears to be a difference between auto and manual:

2/9/2018 PM Update Installing C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\download\PRTG Network Monitor Setup (Stable).exe (Username)

3/2/2018 1:00:49 AM Update Installing C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\download\PRTG Network Monitor Setup (Stable).exe

3/2/20181:00:49 AM Update Autoupdate: Automatic installation of updates is enabled. Initiating installation of version (PRTG Network Monitor Setup (Stable).exe)

Let me know if that helps.
