Prayer = Good…Over-Notifications? Maybe Not So Much

by tbuegler

Mobile_Apps-3-562x309@2x-op-1The Network is a community that prays for each other.  And I suspect we can all agree that we’re in favor of prayer.

And using the “Prayer Request” feature in the Network app is a great way for us to keep in touch and to pray for each other.  After Extravaganza 2018 in Houston, there was a big jump in usage for this feature of the app.

But I’ve also received a bunch of questions about how to limit the email notifications that we receive when someone posts a prayer request…and when someone responds to a prayer request.

Yes, there is a solution!

Here it is, step by step:

IMG_B312954C5A56-1First, Open the Network app.  (If you don’t have it yet…you should get it!  You can get information on the app at http://www.elcaymnet.org/app and/or search for it in your Apple or Android app store.)

 

Second, from the main menu, click on “My Profile.”  That will take you to the page that has your personal information stored.

Third, at the top of your profile screen (above the space for your profile photo) click on the “Edit my Profile” button.  If the edit option doesn’t show up, try quitting the app and re-loading it.

Fourth, when your profile editor opens up, scroll to the bottom of the screen and you can select if you’e like to receive notifications within the app (push notifications) or by e-mail or text message…or any combination of those you would like to use.

That’s it!  It’s that simple.

So yes, let’s commit to praying for each other.  And, let’s commit to getting the notifications about those prayer requests in whatever way works best for each of us!

Peace,
Todd.
