Besides notifications via email and SMS/text messages, you can receive push notifications when high severity alarms activate.
What are push notifications?
Push notifications are messages sent directly to you via your browser or via the app. These messages can be received on either a computer or a mobile device.
You do not need to have the browser open to receive push notifications. On a computer, they appear as alerts in either the top right or bottom right-hand corner of the screen. On mobile devices, push notifications via the browser look virtually the same as push notifications sent from apps.
How to receive push notifications?
iOS or Android device
To receive push notifications on an iOS or Android device, you need to install the Notification Center iOS app (web push notifications are not supported for iOS) or Notification Center Android app. When prompted, allow the app to send push notifications. You can always adjust notification settings via the settings on your device.
These instructions apply both if you access the Notification Center via the browser on your computer or if you have the Notification Center installed as PWA on your computer.
To receive push notifications on a computer:
- Allow web push notifications in your browser for the Notification Center website.
Follow these instructions to enable/disable push notifications from a Chrome browser on a computer.
- Make sure you allow to Get notifications from apps and other senders in your Windows settings > Notifications & actions.
Receiving too many push notifications?
Turn off notifications to temporarily or indefinitely not receive any type of notifications for a specific alarm (personal setting). Or create rules to reduce the number of push notifications (personal or organizational setting).
If you do not want to receive any push notifications, block them in the browser or the app.
