- Notifications will not be sent if scheduled publishing is in use.
- Notification will not be sent if a project/topic is unpublished.
- Push Notifications are not supported in Gametize hybrid application (e.g. Gourmet Grammar)
- Push Notifications must be enabled in the Device Settings (see 1.)
- Push Notifications are not supported on the player web (Player Web)
- The application must also be minimised in order for push notifications to be received.
- If a user is using the same account on multiple devices, only the device that has last accessed the application will receive the push notification.
