Great idea Alan,
This is the same idea as my request for alerts based on objects in a map a couple of years ago.
Just keeping the map up to date will also keep your alerts and reports up to date, such as;
Node status, Latency, Packet Loss, Link utilization and error alerts and/or reports.
Apparently if there are enough requests for a particular feature, SW may consider implementing it!
This has been marked for the PM to review.
