Customizing push notifications: get the information that matters to you

Push Notification Settings TeamPages

You may have noticed that you have been receiving notifications about team announcements on your Android or iOS device. We wanted to make sure after releasing support for news that you could keep up to date with the news being posted to TeamPages while on the go. Now, whenever a team or organization you’re a part of creates and posts an announcement either on the web or directly from their mobile app, you’ll receive a push notification giving you a heads up to check out the new post.

With this new feature, we recognize that there are a lot of different of TeamPages push notifications! In addition to the new support for announcement notifications, you should also be receiving notifications whenever:

  • Someone sends you a TeamPages message
  • An event is created, postponed, cancelled
  • An event has its important details (such as its time or location) changed.

Since we plan to support even more types of push notifications in the future, we decided it was imperative that we let you control which of these notifications you want to receive.

TeamPages now supports opting out of specific push notifications both on the web and from within the mobile app itself. You can choose to completely disable (or re-enable) a notification type altogether, or for each available notification type, filter out specific teams.  This can be extremely handy if you manage or play on multiple teams.

Lastly, if you’re not receiving push notifications, make sure that you are signed in to the TeamPages app and have subscribed to push notifications on its settings page as shown above.  If you’re using an iOS device such as an iPhone, make sure you’ve also allowed TeamPages to send you push notifications inside the app (You would have been prompted the first time you signed in). You can adjust this setting by going into your iOS device’s settings, choosing the “Notifications” option, choosing “TeamPages”, and ensuring the “Allow Notifications” setting is toggled on. You can also adjust other settings such as your sound preferences for TeamPages notifications here. (On Android this is done inside the app).


We hope these new customization options are helpful to you! We want to ensure your experience with the TeamPages mobile app suits your needs and helps you stay up to date with your team. If you have any questions or need help controlling your push notifications, you can reach us at support@teampages.com or at 1-800-500-7203, M-F 9am – 5pm Pacific Standard Time.
