Push Notification issue with Powerapps and flows

Hi everybody,

I'm a beginner having problems trying to work with PowerApps and Microsoft Flow.

 

I created a very basic app, just in order to get an APP ID.

 

Microsoft Flows side, I created a flow that connects with the app, and sends a plain simple Powerapps push notification with a recipient (me :)).

 

I downloaded Powerapps for android, logged in and I can see my app.

 

When I launch the flow everything seems to work just fine, the problem is I don't receive the notification.

 

Is there any knows issue? What can I try? You need additional information to help me?

 

Thanks in advance.

Belv,

 

 Currently, if you have PowerApps open the push notification will not come up.  If PowerApps is closed, then you will see it.

unfortunately that's not the case.

by the way yesterday in the afternoon it started working fine, and on the evening i received notification that should have been arrived 2 days before.

 

now i guess, it's a viable option to use this function or it works just now and then?

Hi @belv,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you want to send an push notification to your specific app using Microsoft Flow?

 

If you want to send an push notification to your specific app using Microsoft Flow, please check the following article:

I have made a test on my Android device whose version is 7.1.1 and the issue is confirmed on my side. The user @JWiersemaProrai has faced similar issue with you, please check the following thread:

Thanks for your feedback, I would post this issue to my product team, if this issue is solved, I would reply here.

 

Best regards,

Kris

Re: Push Notification issue with Powerapps and flows

Hello All,

I am having a similar issue.  I get the push notifications when im not in the app.  if the app is open i do not receive the notification.   I saw a post from last year that stated this is by design.  Is that true?

Thanks 

Parker
