New Push Notifications for the Procore Mobile Apps
In an effort to expand Procore's mobile device notification capabilities for Procore for Android and Procore for iOS users, a variety of push notifications have been released.
What is a push notification?
A push notification is an alert or message that is sent to your device from a mobile app; these alerts appears in your mobile device's notification center. Procore's mobile apps now support push notifications for specific tools and features. See Which tools support push notifications?
Procore recently released an "@mentions" feature for the Project level Photos tool. Project team members can use this feature to notify specific team members about new images by mentioning their name in a comment for an image uploaded to the Photos tool. For instructions, see Mention Someone in a Photo Comment. In a previous version of Procore, this sent an email notification to the user who was targeted by the @mention. When configured properly, rather than sending out an email notification, you can opt to send a push notification to your mobile device. See Configure Settings: Procore iOS App and Configure Settings: Procore Android App
