I'm trying to develop a timesheet app for my staff and would like to add a simple push notification at the end of each working day (mon-fri) as a reminder to log work hours.
I have added the app id as a powerapps connection and have added it as a data source in the BrowseScreen following this.
But this then gets more complicated than I need, and while this article indicates in its contents that it covers if 'You want to engage your users on a specific interval' https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/add-notifications it does not actually give any advice about this in the content.
Can anyone point me to any instructions as to how to set a daily push notification at a set time?
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is the way we did it
1. Set a trigger as a reccurence
2. select the target group (in our case it was a 365 Group) and foreach push the notification
Don't forget to connect to the application in SendPushNotification step.
I was talking about the Microsoft Flow in my reply - so basically what you need is only a flow with a link to your app
1. Create from blank a new Flow by searching "hundreds of connectors and triggers"
2. Choose the trigger Schedule - Recurrence
3. Set data as in my first picture (according to your needs)
4. Add a new action step and follow my second picture
5. Add the foreach and then inside the powerapps notification
6. Set the Connection Name and App ID
Play a little bit and let me know
Not sure what I need to put in the 'recipient's item', I'm just building a template at the moment....
Was planning on duplicating the app, one for each team member, we only have 8 people using it
Its connected to an Excel sheet in OneDrive, so will have one table per staff member
@bdodu working! Thank you so much for persisting with me.. one last thing, any way to get an app notification badge/dot on the app icon. That annoying number that makes you open the app to get rid of it. Want staff to see how many days they have not logged hours for at a glance...
I have a list of tasks assigned to specific people from excel. I want people to get notified 1 day and 1 week before the due date for task and when they click on the notification they should be navigated to detail page of that task. How can I do that?
