Acknowledge Down message visible in Map



I'm currently creating a map with multiple device trees using the "Name and status (sizeable, status-related background)" objects.

However, I would like to have visible for each device tree, the message for the acknowledged down sensor. Is there a way to have an object show the AckDown message for the sensor that is at that moment AckDown or can you only show the message for a specific sensor?

acknowledge map-objects message

Dear Customer,

We don't offer an native Map Object for this, but you can create a Custom Map Object, with which you can display these messages. You'll find the need information here.
Kind regards
