What are push notifications?
Push notifications provide public safety agencies the ability to send out a clickable pop-up message to a user’s device with important information in real-time through a post. Push notifications are always enabled when an agency sends out a post unless the agency chooses to disable the push notification toggle. Disabling push notifications allow posts to be placed into the Neighbors app without sending residents a real-time alert to their mobile devices.
How to disable push notifications on your posts:
Step 1: Sign into Publicsafety.ring.com and click Create
Step 2: Choose your category (Safety, Crime, Community, Environmental, Animal)
Step 3: Select an area (Regional or Hyper Local)
Step 4: Add the post details (post title, media, and description)
Step 5: Click on the Send Push Notifications toggle (Toggle will turn grey)
Step 6: Review a Preview of the post
Step 7: Click Continue
Step 8: Finish by selecting Accept and Submit
