PowerApps push notifications bug?

I had tested the Push notifications when the blog announcing the feature had first appeared and it had worked fine. However trying it today, I'm having a strange problem using notifications on Pcs.

 

I have in front of me three devices, a Desktop Pc (Windows 10), Surface Pro3 (Windows 10) and an iPhone, I have PowerApps studio installed on both the Desktop Pc and on the Surface Pro and the PowerApps app installed on the iPhone.

 

I created a test app and have a button that's sending out a push notification, on the iPhone, it works fine, hit the send button once and I get a single notification.

 

However on the Pcs, the notification keeps popping up several times, when you would expect it to show up once only.

 

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Hi UB400,

 

Are you using a flow to send a PowerApps Notification?


If yes, could you show me a screenshot of the Output for the action “Send Push Notification” ?

@v-yamao-msft sorry for the delay in responding to you. I'm not using Flow, instead I'm using the Send Push notifications feature/control as indicated in this Blog post by Laura Onu https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/add-push-notification-to-you-app-and-boost-usage-and-rete...

 

As I had mentioned, it worked fine earlier but now on Windows 10 Pcs I get multiple notifications, works as expected with IOS. If you could kindly check and see if you can replicate the issue?

@v-yamao-msft I see the same thing. My formula for push notifications follows the blog post here: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/add-push-notification-to-you-app-and-boost-usage-and-rete...

 

 

PowerAppsNotification.SendPushNotification({recipients: [DataCard7.Default.Email],message:"You have been added to the On Call Roster for the week of " & Text(DataCardValue10.SelectedDate,"[$-en-US]dd/mm/yy")});Back(ScreenTransition.None)

My Windows 10 computer gets the notification 8 times. My iPhone gets it once.

Hi,

 

I also have this issue. Push notifications comes to my desktop but not to my Andoid device.

 

Any fix ?
