Missing notifications

Please fill out the following sections to the best of your ability, it will help us investigate bugs if we have this information at the outset. Screenshots are especially helpful, so please provide those if you can.

Platform (Android, iOS, Website): Website

App version number, if a mobile app issue (shown under Settings or About):

Browser, if a website issue (Firefox, Chrome, etc) : Firefox

URLs (aka web addresses) of any relevant observations or pages:
Screenshots of what you are seeing (instructions for taking a screenshot on computers and mobile devices: https://www.take-a-screenshot.org/):

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

Step 1: Open my dashboard on iNat, see no new notifications

Step 2: Open ‘Edit Observations’, see that several observations posted yesterday have reached Research Grade

Step 3: Go back to dashboard, open ‘Your Content’, see no notifications since yesterday

Step 4: Check one of the Research Grace observations from Step 2, see that the confirming ID was posted 5 hours ago

I am not receiving notifications of identifications. This has been happening at random intervals for the past 5 days.

It has been mirrored on the iNat app on my Android phone - the missing notifications are also missing on my phone.

In your account settings under Notifications, is “Confirming IDs” on or off?


Thank you! It was off.

I had turned it off so I would not get notifications for other people’s observations, where I had left an ID and someone else had agreed with it. Hadn’t realized it would turn off agreeing IDs for my own observations.
