My entire team all has this very same exact problem across multiple devices and android versions. Every singe one of them reports that they're not getting notifications from this app, and even within my testing, as soon as I open another program (say my email) I no longer receive notifications. Only if the app is open or I press the home button will it work.
Is there some setting hidden that none of us can find, or does the android apk just not stay active in the background for notifications? This is an essential functionality that without, this software is simply useless for us.
I would like to gather more details regarding the issue your team is experiencing:
Most of them don't have a computer for it to be running on, they've been using GroupMe, but we(IT) want a solution that we have more control over. From the testing I have done, usually it works, sometimes it doesn't. If I have the desktop app open in seemingly any status, I do not get notifications on my phone at all. I haven't messed around with it too much because it seems to just be a broken or bad design to me where if I walk away from my desk, I won't automatically get notifications twinned on my phone.
It seems like the notification design of Stride is just poor. As a communications tool, the notifications should just work, by default without needing to teach everyone how to enable them and make sure each and everyone's device is working correctly. I really don't have much spare time to deal with trying to support a 3rd party program that I don't even use with my team.
All good things come to an end - thanks to all our customers and partners who have been along the Hipchat and Stride journey with us. As of Feb 15th 2019, Hipchat Cloud and Stride have reached ...
