Configure desktop client alerts




Question - I have installed the PRTG Desktop Client and would like to be able to control what kind of notifications get pushed (ie. the desktop pop-ups in the corner)

Is there a way I can configure what does/doesn't trigger desktop notifications to flash in the corner? I would like the ability to tailor this, ie. only alerts push a notification, and not warnings.


alerts desktop notifications

Hi there,

Unfortunately, the popup cannot be customized for certain devices or Sensors. The only available configurations for are in "File > Settings >Notifications".

Kind regards,
