Notifications in Comms Hub

Keep you informed with all messages in Comms Hub.

Here’s when you’ll receive desktop and mobile notifications by default:

  1. Someone sends you a direct message (Chat)
  2. Someone notifies a channel you’re in
  3. Someone @ mention you
  4. Someone replies to a thread you're following
  5. You receive a message from Vinnybot

When there is a new message in VinnyChat, you will see a numbered badge on your Comms Hub icon.

❓ How does Vincere count the number of new messages?

The numbered badge represents the number of conversations per user or per group and not the number of messages received in total.

For example, if you have 5 unread messages from the same teammate, Vincere will display number 1 on the Comms Hub icon.

Note: If you don't see Comms Hub, please check out the configuration settings here.

Push notifications

You will receive push notifications when you’re on Vincere and have Comms Hub open.

Note: The first time you receive a notification from Vincere, your browser will request your permission to enable the push notification > select Allow.

Sidebar notifications

When there’s unread activity in a chat (direct message) or a group, the conversation name will appear bold in your sidebar.

You’ll also see a numbered badge if someone mentions you.

❓ How to mute notifications from a group or a shout-out group?

From a group or a shout-out group, click on the ℹ️ icon on the right hand corner to see the group details > toggle OFF Notifications to mute notifications from this group.

Email notifications

You will receive an email alert when someone @mention you in a conversation or give shout-outs to you. Click on Open in VinnyChat to open the conversation.

How to troubleshoot notifications

Sometimes your browser or desktop settings could interfere with notifications. If you’re not receiving notifications even though you’ve set up the Notification settings in your Comms Hub, give these steps a try:

Check your browser settings

1. From the Chrome menu at the top of your screen, select Settings

2. Click Privacy and security in the left sidebar, then click Site Settings.

3. Below Permissions, select Notifications.

4. Look for your Vincere tenant URL. If the tenant URL is in the Block list, click on the three dots and choose Allow.

5. To troubleshoot Notification sound setting, click on the arrow, locate Sound > Select Allow

If the above steps didn’t resolve the issue, please take a recording of your browser settings, your notification settings inside Vinny Comms Hub and the issue and reach out to our Support team via the Help Center or at support@vincere.io.
