Dynamic Text announcements on Maps




Is it possible to add dynamic announcements on Maps?

We are creating several Maps that will be on common display and I was wondering if it would be possible to add announcements to it like: "Upcoming Downtime on xx day" , "problems with xx network" etc.

Appreciate any answers.

Hi avogiatzis,

With some HTML skills, you can create your own Custom HTML object. You can also use HTML iframes to import external information into a PRTG Map. With this command and an external website, where you define your announcements, you are able to display this information in your PRTG Map.
