Is there a way to add a column in the List of Sensors report template so it shows the "Message" text field of the sensors?

Thank you for your post.

It is not possible to generate reports for the sensor messages. Reports can only be generated for the data shown in the "Channels" of a sensor.

Kind regards,

End up using API to get the report I wanted. Here is the URI in case you need to do something similar https://prtgserver/api/table.json?content=sensors&columns=device,sensor,status,message&filter_tags=@tag(restsensor)
