Notification Troubleshoot - I am not receiving ADDA App Notifications on my phone

Notification Troubleshoot - I am not receiving ADDA App Notifications on my phone

Notification Troubleshoot guide

 

Step 1: We have a simple screen in the App which can help you understand why you are not receiving notifications. This is how you can use this feature.


Step 2: Make sure that you have enabled the notifications from inside the ADDA App.

  • For Visitor Notifications please go to More > Settings > Gatekeeper Settings. Ensure that “Notify by App Notification” is enabled.

  • For other notifications like Community Posts, etc. please go to More > Settings > Notification Settings. Ensure that the various relevant settings are enabled.


Step 3: In case the above methods do not work, then most probably there might be some phone-specific reason for the notifications not getting delivered.

(Functioning of notifications depends on a lot of factors like device manufacturers, OS versions,  network connectivity, recency of the app usage and so on.)


Phone-specific troubleshooting guide:

  1. iPhone
  2. Samsung
  3. Vivo 
  4. Oppo
  5. Xiaomi
  6. Asus

1) iPhone


Ensure that App notifications for the ADDA app are enabled :


Go to Settings >> Notifications >> Choose ADDA App >>

Allow Notifications, Sound & Badges must be enabled here.


Other Troubleshooting methods:


1. Turn off Power saving -

    Go to Settings>Battery and make sure “Low Battery Mode” is not on.


2. For minor OS or Cache Issues -

     Just a simple restart of the phone can potentially solve such issues.


3. Turn off Do not Disturb mode -

     Head to “Settings” in your iPhone, look for “Do Not Disturb” and turn it off.


4. Turn ON “Show Previews” 

     Go to Settings>Notifications, and change setting for “Show Previews” to “Always”


5. Upgrade iOS version :

Often iOS updates are launched by Apple to introduce new and better features for your iDevices and to fix bugs which may cause issues like iPhone notifications not working. 

Go to Settings > General> Software Update > Download and Install to upgrade to the newest iOS version


6. Network Reset:

The Wi-Fi or network connection issues might cause notification issues. You can reset the network settings by going to Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings>Confirm Resetting.

It is harmless to do this reset. Though it will restart your phone, it does not remove any of your phone data, Apps, etc.
