Bank holidays in PRTG-Schedule



We have to configure Active alerting (via SMS) exclusively for bank Holidays. Although we can configure Days-of-week and Hours-of-day we are missing the possibility to configure BANK HOLIDAYS with fixed Dates - like e.g. 25th of December.

Is there a hidden & secret XML anywhere? How have you managed your SMS-forwarders to your external IT-Hotline on Bank Holidays?

Hi Georg,

Unfortunately, we don't offer a possibility to configure a schedule for bank holidays.

If you want to have this option included in PRTG, you are welcome to open a Feature Request. Feature Requests are enhancements you desire for the future and are voted by the customers. This means that if your request gets many votes, this increases the prioritisation of our product owners.
You'll find more information here.

Kind regards
