3. To take action on the Notification click the appropriate button.

Let’s Go – Takes you to the Maple Messages page where you can view the full text of the notification.

Dismiss – Removes the Prompt or Reminder for this item.

Tip: Just like on your Maple Dashboard, if you use the Dismiss button for a feature reminder, like the one shown above, it will disable the reminder for that feature. For example, using the Dismiss button in this example will prevent you from getting periodic nudges to write in your Journal. 

If you make a mistake don’t worry!  It happens.  Just go back to the Journal page and turn the reminder back on.  

Snooze – Temporarily removes this item from your list of Messages.  It will reappear shortly based on the type of message.

Tip: You can also Snooze a notification by swiping it. System Notifications can not be snoozed so if you swipe it, you’ll Dismiss it.  And remember, what you do to the notification on your device carries through to your Maple Dashboard.

That’s all! Just like your Maple Dashboard but right their on your device.  Super useful!!

Amazing! You’ve covered everything there is on using Device Notifications.  There is also useful info on what each Notification option does on the Device Notification page. If you have questions let us know using the Contact page or the Help features in Maple.
