Custom 'Alarms Root' pbject with Disk Free/Available (Only) Sensors onlly



We are very new to PRTG and we are looking to create a modified version of the 'Alerts Root' map object that ONLY lists Disk Free/Available alerts. Our goal is to sort this list by 'status' then by percentage available (smallest to largest). Any help or guidance on where to start would be greatly appreciated. Thanks-JCone

You can Drag & drop an object from the items list on the right to the main window of the Map Designer to change the sensors the "Alert" map object displays. (The object does not always only show "root").

Customizing/Modifying map objects might be possible, however please note that this is not officially supported.
