Progress on Push Notifications?

What’s the status of push notifications? My app’s progress kind of hinges on them, but I know that you all are doing all you can. I’d just love to see an update to this Docs page.

Hey @onepixelman! Great to see you here :+1:t4:

We have moved a lot closer and are just working out some final parts to it.

So yes, hopefully I will get to update that quiet little doc page soon! :wink:

Will it be a Pro feature?

Happy to hear it is being worked on! I hope it’s available for everyone! This will be a great addition!

Thanks for all of your hard work!

Hard to say at this stage @marcovrj. Sorry to not be able to give more info at the mo.

Hi - it’s been a while since this thread was updated - what is the update on Push Notifications?

Some of my sites have the Notification option in Chrome to toggle on and off but others don’t. Is there anything that needs to be enabled?

Does this post help any?

Yes that helps, thank you.

Note: shchc=Kyle_Heney

Only Android? I see push notifications advertised on other app services for both? This is a major feature for clients and would be great if I could provide an approximate time frame @JackVaughan
Thanks!

Is there any current update on this ?

The last I remember reading was that notifications was a limitation of IOS, so I’m guessing Glide is waiting for Apple to allow it.

Any more recent news? Will it be a Pro only feature?

Google Firebase would actually allow you to send notification.
Maybe using Google Script you can send notifications / emails.
Does anyone have any experience with this?

Emails yes, notifications no, not tested. Good idea!

I tested the emails part,… but it’ll send it out in your google accounts name. No changing the from address or name :frowning:

/**
 * Sends non-duplicate emails with data from the current spreadsheet.
 */
function sendEmailComments() {

var SHEETNAME = “”;
var sheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet().getSheetByName(SHEETNAME)
var startRow = 2; // First row of data to process
var numRows = sheet.getLastRow(); // Number of rows to process
var numColumn = sheet.getLastColumn();

  // Fetch the range of
  var dataRange = sheet.getRange(startRow, 1, numRows, numColumn);
  
  // Fetch values for each row in the Range.
  var data = dataRange.getValues();
  for (var i = 0; i < data.length; ++i) {
var row = data[i];
var nameTo = row[2];
var emailAddress = row[3];
var timeSent = row[4];
var message = 'Hi ' + nameTo + ', Tekst';

if (sendDate == "") { // Prevents sending duplicates
        var now = new Date();
        var subject = '[EO Challenge] There is a new comment on ' + topicTitle;
        
        MailApp.sendEmail(emailAddress, subject, message);
        sheet.getRange(startRow + i, 9).setValue(now); //update the sendDate column with date sent
        
        // Make sure the cell is updated right away in case the script is interrupted
        SpreadsheetApp.flush();
}
  }
}

Have successfully created apps to send WhatsApp notifications/reminders on status changes or creation of new events or while approaching a deadline. Have incorporated the same in one of my demo app, you can give it a go here. (Create and assign tasks to receive automated notifications)

Wondering the best way to move fwd,… I have about 70 active users in my app who are commenting (me and a few I know included). Yet I’m not receiving any emails from “the app” as mentioned here.

“All users will receive an email digest”

How do you handle email notifications for users? and what if you need more than 500 that google allows?

https://docs.glideapps.com/all/reference/features/notifications

I think Glide disabled the email digest a long time ago. Not sure about the reasoning behind it.
