It is hard to go a day without picking up your phone. It is even harder to resist social media. When users download applications, most of the time they subscribe to notifications. While some people are able to handle their daily stream of notifications, on certain days, they can become too much. Users either turn on Do Not Disturb, delete the application entirely for that day, or adjust their settings.
In today’s video, the CloudApp team teaches you how to fix your notification settings so that they tailor towards your needs. Maybe you need to turn them off for a specific app and turn them on for another. Maybe you need to shut off certain apps entirely but turn on notifications for others when only using the app. If you want to learn how you can configure your own notification settings, you have come to the right place.
Step #1: Open System Preferences and go to Notifications
Step #2: Find the application you want to turn on Notifications for. Toggle on Allow Notifications from (Application Name)
Notifications are an easy way to stay updated with your favorite apps, news, restaurants, and much more, but they also serve as an easy way to get distracted. Every day, people receive around 46 push notifications from the 60-90 apps on their device. Finding the balance between being productive throughout the entirety of a work day and still receiving notifications from your personal life is extremely key to not only your well being but others around you.
