Device Tree Management

The Management tab is available when viewing probes or groups. After clicking this tab, you can move devices and sensors directly in the tree view. If moving is not possible, the PRTG web interface automatically starts a clone process.

Notification Triggers Settings

On the Notification Triggers tab, notification triggers can be set for every object. When using these settings for a probe, group, or device, they are inherited to all sensors on these objects. Available notification trigger options are the same for all objects.
