Managing Notification Preferences

Fitdigits apps can give you many different types of feedback and encouragement. There are 2 different ways you can manage these notifications, either within the app, or in the devices’ settings.

There are 3 types of notifications:

  1. In app notifications, which includes popups and notifications that show up inside the app when you are doing custom workouts or changing Zones (aka Popups). Read more on those here.
  2. Push notifications which originate from the cloud and show in the devices’ notification section.
  3. Local notifications, which originate from within the app itself and show in the devices’ notification section.

Of course, not every option or metric is for everyone, so we try to do our best to make the level and types of engagement so there is something for everyone, even if that something is nothing. In this article we will discuss Push and Local notifications, including daily encouragement on steps, goals, weekly and monthly summaries, LiveTracking notifications and more.

Local Notifications:

weekly/monthly summaries, Daily Steps & Progress Notifications

Local notifications about your weekly / monthly activity summaries, as well as encouragement towards your daily steps when you are connected to Apple Health or Google Fit are all handled on the Local (app based) level.

To adjust these settings, go to Menu > Profile, and look for the Notifications & Account Permissions section.

The following options are available:

  • Off (no local notifications)
  • Summary (just a previous days summary each day for steps, and weekly / monthly summary notifications)
  • All (a few encouraging messages through the day plus the weekly / monthly summaries).

Manage these notifications in-app under Partners (Fig. 1), at the bottom of the Platforms section in versions pre-8.140.

Resting Heart Rate Notifications

Local notifications about your resting heart rate on a daily basis when you are connected to Apple Health, which is really based mainly around users with the Apple Watch. Since your Resting Heart Rate is really mostly important when you are starting the day to see how stressed or ready your body may be for exercise, it doesn’t do a Summary option, only an All or Off option. Summary is the equivalent of All.

Heart Rate Zone Change Notifications

Local notifications about when you change heart rate zones during a workout. Since these are very oriented towards the in-app workout experience, you can turn them on or off in your app under Activity Options (gear icon) – select the activity type, tap the gear icon in the lower left, tap on Heart Rate Zones. You will find the preferences at the bottom of the list of heart rate zones associated with your account.

See more on these specific zone notifications.

PUSH NOTIFICATIONS

Manage the notifications pushed to your device by tapping on the “Other Notifications & Permissions” option within Notifications & Account Permissions. The following options are available:

Goals & Achievements

Email and push notifications when goals are reached. Future development to include optional goal progress notifications, as well as when new personal bests are reached in a given year. Future development to include optional monthly best notifications.

Livetracking

Get a push notification when fellow group members or friends you are following (coming soon) are LiveTracking their activities.
