Enable notifications and never miss a message again!
Minnit supports both Push Notifications and Email Notifications for various recurring instances that happen within your chatroom and organization.
We recommend Push Notifications for most use-cases, as they provide an easily-glanceable way of viewing chatroom content. Email Notifications work for older devices, or devices that will not always be online to receive the notification.
We offer notifications for the following events:
New main chat messages
Receive a notification when a message is posted in main chat.
Note: This is supported on the Basic plan and higher only, and you must be a regular or higher on the chat you enable notifications for.
Chat Transcript and Media Reports
Receive a notification when a transcript or upload is reported on a chat.
Note: You must be a moderator or higher in the chat(s) you'd like to enable this on.
New direct messages
Receive a notification when you receive a new direct message.
New accounts pending approval
Receive a notification when an account is registered and is pending approval for organizations with this option enabled).
Note: You need to be either the organization creator or have the abilty to manage accounts in order to be able to enable this.
Push vs Email?
You can set up notifications to be delivered to you via web-based Push notifications, Email notifications, or both.
To receive Push Notifications, you must be using a modern browser and operating system, as well as have the device online at the time of the notification being sent. If your device is offline, and a notification is sent from our servers, you will not receive it when you go back online.
To receive Email Notifications, you must have your email verified. Navigate to Account Settings to set up a verified email if you haven't done so already.
Setting up Push Notifications on iPhone & iPad
Apple has an additional restriction in place for Push Notifications. To set up Push Notifications, you must first add the chatroom to your homepage by tapping the icon when using the chat in Safari, then tapping "Add to Home Screen."
Once this is done, open the newly-created icon to re-launch the chat, then login again. Then, cick the Gear icon and click Notifications, and you'll be able to set Push Notifications.
This requires you to be on iOS 16 / iPadOS 16, or newer.
Unfortunately, this complicated setup is a restriction set by Apple — Minnit is not able to bypass this restriction.
