Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):

In the second link, I had a notification for the initial tag, which later disappeared. Now, a new ID was added and there’s nothing in my dashboard. First link, no notification was generated from the ID either (on the app or web, I believe).


Missing notification came in for the scale observation (roughly an hour later).

Here’s what I don’t see on my app for the velvet ant:

There’s a notification for Kevin’s comment, but not his initial disagreement.

I’m having similar issues, also on Chrome. Notifications are coming in with a delay of minutes to hours. Not sure if it’s related to the slow responsiveness in the identify portal, but that’s also happening right now.


These are push notifications? Because I have email notifications and I’m used to getting them once a day as a digest.

A couple days ago, @the_knower and I have been noticing similar problems, with me at least 2 hours to receive the notification. Seems to be working for me now, although occasionally I am getting duplicate notifications, i.e., I receive a notification one minute and then I receive the same notification around an hour or so later (and they both appear on the list of the last 10 notifications list).

Push notifications. My email notifications were coming in late as well (into the afternoon and evening for a few days), but are all timestamped for ~6 am, so that may be a Google issue and not an iNaturalist issue.

I don´t receive any notifications of identifications that people are making for the last 4 hours.

Now getting notifications with a 6hr delay. :man_shrugging:

Also getting delayed notifs by 6 hours, started happening a couple few hours ago.

No notifications on confirmations from 5+hours ago. Don’t show up in my “Your content” either.

Just showed up after about 6-7 hours.

I’ve been getting 5-6 hour delays on both mobile and chrome for the past few days too

Everything seems back to normal on my end
