PRTG Feature Request



I'd like to request an "archive" function.

We have old or superseded sensors which are permanently paused because we don't want to lose the historic data. It would be nice to have an archive function where I can archive a device or an individual sensor, have it removed from the tree entirely, but still be able to reference them if I ever need to.

I do have an "Archived" group I move old devices into, but that's only good for devices as I can't move individual sensors into it from devices which are still in production.
