I just started sending papertrail logs from a new server. The
logs are showing up fine, but they aren't part of the group I want
them to be in. How can I add this new system to a group?

Thanks for asking. To add a server to an existing group, visit
Papertrail's Dashboard and then click
the name of the group itself (such as "All Systems").
You'll arrive at a page with a pie chart of usage by sender. On
that page, click "Edit Settings" in the upper right. Here, you can
add or remove individual systems by checking or unchecking
Also, if your systems follow a naming convention and you want to
include all of a certain type, look at the "Include systems named:"
field. A good example is including all Web servers; if they were
named www1, www2, and www3, you could include www*.
When www4 is added later, it will automatically be included.
Systems can be part of multiple groups at the same time, so there's
no risk of a system suddenly moving.
The tip on that form field has a few examples and I'm happy to
