Enabling the Circuit notification service on my Android device

Last updated:

Mobile or push notifications can keep you informed about important activity within Circuit. While Circuit app is open and you are active on it, push notifications are kept silent. But when you are busy or on the go, and Circuit app is closed or moved to the background, push notifications will show up on your device to notify you about new messages or events that are important to you.

If push notifications from Circuit are delayed or not appear at all on your Android device, you can enable the Circuit notification service to have your system prioritize notifications from Circuit.

When the Circuit notification service is enabled, a sticky notification appears in the notification drawer of your device with title Circuit notification service and description Tap for more details. If you tap on the sticky notification, Circuit opens to the Settings screen. The sticky notification is shown when Circuit is not in the foreground and you can dismiss it if you want.

Prerequisites:
  • Turn on the Circuit notification service feature in Circuit Labs.
 
  • To enable the Circuit notification service:
    1. On Circuit, go to the top-left side navigation drawer and tap Settings.
    2. Switch the Circuit notification service slider to ON (green).
  • To dismiss the sticky notification about the Circuit notification service:
    1. On your Android device, go to the App notifications settings.
    2. Disable the FCMHeartbeatService.
    This will only disable the sticky notification. The service will continue running.
  • To disable the Circuit notification service:
    1. On Circuit, go to the top-left side navigation drawer and tap Settings.
    2. Switch the Circuit notification service slider to OFF (gray).
