PRTG Manual: Chrome Desktop Notifications

While you're logged in to the PRTG web interface with your Chrome browser, PRTG can use it to show notifications on your desktop whenever there are new alarms in your monitoring.

Desktop notifications will be shown (by default, in the lower right corner of your desktop) whenever there are new alarms after a page refresh. Click on the screw driver symbol within a notification to change the position of the notification window, or to block the web interface's URL for this feature.

In Chrome's default configuration, you have to initially allow those notifications for each installation/profile of Google Chrome. To do so, in the PRTG web interface, please click on Setup, then click on Chrome Desktop Notifications.
