Slate users can enable push notifications by selecting specific types and locations to receive them. When selected, Slate will push a notification as a banner alert to the user's desktop or mobile device.
To access the push notifications setting:
|1. Hover over the user profile (in the upper right corner of the Slate page) and select Notifications. The Notifications popup appears.||
2. Select the desired type of activity and location for push notifications.
3. Click Save.
With push notifications enabled, when something like a text message arrives for a number for which the user is directly assigned, an alert will appear on their mobile device.
Notifications can also be configured to appear on desktop and laptop devices, even if Slate isn't open on those devices.
Selecting the notification launches the app (on mobile) or browser (on desktops) and opens the message thread or other relevant link.
