Push notifications send an alert to your notification center on your mobile device. This results in a pop up message on your lock screen. Simply select this alert to be brought back into the MoveSpring app. From here you can view your friend request, see the chat conversation you've missed, and more.

Silence all notifications on your phone with Do Not Disturb
In MoveSpring, you may have enabled push notifications to get updates about your challenge or alerts for new chat messages. However, you may find yourself receiving notifications in less than ideal times, especially if your company operates in more than one time zone. Turning on Do Not Disturb can help you manage your notifications so that you can still receive notifications, but on a schedule that works best for you.
The Do Not Disturb feature available on iPhones and Android phones allows you to silence calls, alerts, and notifications received while your device is locked. This feature can be helpful if you’re sleeping, working, trying to focus, or are in another setting where you do not want to receive notifications.
You can toggle Do Not Disturb on or off as you desire. Additionally, if you have recurring times where you’d like to silence notifications, you can schedule automatic “Do Not Disturb” times. Learn how to set this up on an iPhone and Android phone below.
Note: By default, Do Not Disturb applies to all notifications, including call, email, text, and app notifications, not just MoveSpring. You can configure Do Not Disturb to allow exceptions while enabled. Learn more here.

Can I allow exceptions with Do Not Disturb?
By default, Do Not Disturb applies to all notifications, including all call, email, text, and app notifications. If you want to allow exceptions to this rule, you can also set that up from the Do Not Disturb menu on your phone.
For example, you can specify notifications from certain contacts or certain apps to be exempt, or you can choose to allow notifications for repeated calls when Do Not Disturb is on. Visit your device manufacturer’s website to learn more about the exceptions offered by your specific device.
