Delayed Push Notifications

These screenshots show the general steps for Android 9 devices (some device specific instructions are listed below if the battery settings appear slightly different on a particular user’s device/OS)

From your Android Settings, find the VictorOps Mobile Application

From the VictorOps App, please select Advanced >> Battery

From Battery usage settings you’ll want Battery optimization >> Not optimized >> All apps

From here, you’ll exempt the VictorOps App from Battery optimization. Select done.

Intermittent Push Notifications

If push notifications tend to only work for a short time after logging in or reinstalling the app, a couple settings to check are Adaptive Battery and Data Saver.

Both of these settings can limit and restrict applications and notifications, please ensure VictorOps is exempt from these settings.


Reset your Mobile Device in VictorOps:

From your mobile device:
1. Log out of the mobile app (Click the settings icon (gear))
2. Delete the mobile app from your device entirely.

From the webUI:
3. Log in to your account and access your personal profile (Click your username in the top right corner and select “Your profile”)
4. Delete the device from your contact methods (You do not need to remove any phone numbers associated with the device, just the device itself)

From the mobile device:
5. Re-install the VictorOps Mobile app
6. Log in to the VictorOps app.

This process will redo the device association process and often clears up any issues with the app.
