Report template creation on downtime




I've copied and modified a template to report the downtime of sensors, which displays how long it's been down for.

Is it possible to add a timestamp in the template when the sensor was down (time / date)?

This would be helpful as we'd be able to exclude scheduled restarts or maintenance of devices.

Many Thanks

Hi Paul,

Unfortunately this is not possible. We recommend to pause the corresponding sensor for device restarts and maintenance, so they won't be considered as down.

Kind regards,
