How to toggle mobile notifications

iPhone or iPad

First, you will need to upgrade to the latest version of Padlet for iOS. Notifications will not be turned on automatically, but when you open the app, you will be prompted. Tap Allow to get notifications. 

If you want to disable notifications, go to your phone or tablet's Settings > Notifications > Padlet and switch off Allow Notifications. This is also where you can change how your notifications appear on your home and lock screen.

Android

By installing the Padlet app, you agree to receive notifications, but you can still disable this later. Android devices and operating system versions all look a little different. For most devices, just go to Settings on the home screen >> Application Manager >> Padlet. You might have several options for customizing your notifications, or you'll see one box to uncheck. Make sure to tap OK to confirm. 

Control notifications for individual padlets

Notification preferences can easily be managed in your Padlet settings. You can select which padlets you'd like to get notifications for!

Web
  • Open Padlet from the web or desktop app > click the three dot ellipsis (...) on the bottom left corner of your dashboard > Settings > Communication
  • Use the toggle button to enable or disable notifications.

Web notifications typically appear on the bottom left corner of the page or the right collapsible panel for both PC and Mac

Make sure your browser permissions are not blocked to receive regular alerts.
Mobile App
  • Launch the Padlet app > click the three dot ellipsis icon (...)
  • Click Settings > Communication
  • Use the toggle button to enable or disable notifications for specific padlets.
