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 your objects are displayed when you view table lists. PRTG lists objects with a higher priority first, others underneath, depending on their own priority. Furthermore, device overview pages display gauges for sensors with a high priority.
To change priority settings, right-click an object to open the context menu and select Priority/Favorite. You can choose between 5 stars ***** (top priority) and 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 set a priority directly with one click on a star, for example, for sensors on a device overview page.
Context Menu: Priority
Select 4 or 5 stars for particular sensors to activate their gauges on device overview pages.
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 will be added next to the object's name.
Context Menu: Priority/Favorites (Add)
To remove an object from the favorites list, select Priority/Favorite | Remove from Favorites from the context menu.
Context Menu: Priority/Favorites (Remove)
There is also the option to add a device or sensor to favorites with one click in the device tree. Just 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; clicking the flag again will remove it from favorites and the flag will turn gray again.
One-Click Adding to Favorites in the Device Tree
You can add any device or sensor to favorites on its details page by clicking the small flag symbol in the page header bar. If the flag is blue, the selected object is already a favorite. Clicking the flag again will remove it from favorites and the flag will turn gray again. It is also possible to set the priority of the object by clicking one of the five stars in the page header; five stars ***** means top priority, one star * is the lowest priority.
