What I am trying to solve: we have quite a few users with a Coda/browser shortcut to a dc on their mobile phone screen. I am trying to figure out a way to alert our users, or a selection of them, that their doc has a new message or a new row in a table or needs attention for one reason or another. I know how to do something like that by sending an email, but for many, that doesn’t trigger them to look at the doc, since they get too much email as it is.
Ideally I would like to have a visible clue like I have in my gmail, outlook, whatsapp (and so on) shortcuts (in the form of a number or colored symbol some kind) that something happend in the doc, or (2nd choice) send a push message to a mobile device.
Is there a way to do such a thing? Is there a way to send a push message (I don’t have a clue how other apps handle that)?
If they install the Coda app and allow notifications, the Coda notify feature should work this way.
If you have the app on your phone, open it, log in, then click on the icon at the bottom right to open notifications, then click the icon at the top right and you can turn notifications on or off for both email and mobile.
Personally, I use the browser shortcut that goes directly to the doc I want, then just install the app to get the notifications.
Thank you for your answer. We have uninstalled the app because we do the same thing as you: make browser shortcuts.
In order to do so, you have to get rid of the app first.
These days there are so many issues with the app of mobile browser use (all of my users with an iphone get an error when opening my document (it’s big, but works fine on a pc (including apple)) and I remember I had some other issues with the app on my android phone too.
I will try again and see if I can find a good working solution.
