PRTG Map Report Template - Maps to be sent via scheduled email

User Story

As a PRTG User, I want the ability to leverage the Maps functionality using the scheduled reports feature. In cases where I've already built into my Map dashboards all sensors and graphs needed, I should be able to simply send this Map dashboard as a Report via email, instead of being forced to try to re-create all the content separately using the very limited report templates that require sensors to be selected individually.

Details of User Story

We have a requirement to send a daily "health check" dashboard every day via email to our support teams; I have several custom PRTG maps accessed manually via web browser that contain all required metrics for the health check to be sent, however there is currently no mechanicsm in PRTG that allows me to send out this dashboard via email at a specific time.

PRTG should be able to leverage the existing robust Maps feature to send Maps out as scheduled reports (i.e. report template), the template would essentially capture live html view of a map page(s) and send it via email using the report scheduling feature.

I'm guessing this will turn into a feature enhancement request, but I'm a really surprised this functionality has not been added yet; especially given the amount of customization built into the maps. Why not expand this to allow map reports to be sent? Why would it be difficult to just add a Map report template to allow capturing map dashboards to be sent via the existing report scheduling mechanism? p.s. one of your competitors already has this, it's called "dashboard mailer".

Acceptance criteria

  • Criterion #1: Ability to create a PRTG report using Map URL's, or series of URL's, to display the current view of the map dashboard (as it would appear when viewed in a web browser) in a scheduled report
  • Criterion #2: Ability to leverage the existing Reports email feature in PRTG to email Map Views out at a scheduled time/date. (i.e. dashboard mailer)
