PRTG Manual: Priority and Favorites
You can set priorities for all your monitoring objects and also categorize devices or sensors as favorites. Both settings affect how your objects are displayed.
Settings for priority and favorites are stored for the entire installation. They are not user-specific.
The priority setting affects the order in which PRTG lists your objects in table lists. PRTG lists objects with a higher priority first, others underneath, depending on their own priority. Furthermore, a device can display gauges for sensors with a high priority on its Overview tab.
To change priority settings, right-click an object to open the context menu and select Priority/Favorite. You can choose from 5 stars ***** (top priority) to one star * (lowest priority). By default, all objects are set to medium priority (3 stars ***). In the page header bar and in lists, you can directly set a priority via the stars.
Select 4 or 5 stars for particular sensors to display their gauges on the Overview tab of the parent device.
Select 5 stars for a map to show it as an entry in the main menu bar under Home.
To call a list of all your favorite devices or sensors, select Devices | Favorite Devices or Sensors | Favorite Sensors from the main menu. These lists are sorted by priority as well.
You can mark any device or sensor as favorite to add it to the favorite list. Right-click it to open the context menu. Select Priority/Favorite | Add to Favorites. A small, black, flag symbol is added next to the object's name.
To remove an object from the favorites list, select Priority/Favorite | Remove from Favorites from the context menu.
There is also the option to add a device or sensor to favorites with one click in the device tree. Click the small flag symbol to the right of the respective object name. If the flag is black, the specific object is already a favorite. Click the flag again to remove it from your favorites. The flag turns gray again.
You can add any device or sensor to favorites on its Overview tab. To do so, click the small flag symbol in the page header bar. If the flag is blue, the object is already a favorite. Click the flag again to remove it from your favorites. The flag turns gray again. It is also possible to set the priority of the object via the five stars in the page header. Five stars ***** means top priority, one star * means lowest priority.
