Automatically set external links of sensors



When I am designing a Map. How can I set automatically the external link of a sensor to its graph?

i.e. place automatically the text: "sensor.htm?id=9999&tabid=2" for every PC, I have hundreds of them. where 9999 is the number of its sensor id.

Thanks in advance for your promptly help.

Hello Hugo,

I'm afraid there is no option to have all links from map objects to automatically link to the live graph, so you need to add this as external link to the map objects where needed.

Kind regards,
