    Also it seems that the feature is broken and sometimes won't send push notifications altogether. Previous post with this issue was officially closed without an answer.

    I very much agree. I would greatly prefer to always get mobile notifications instead of a buggy delay.

    Agree, It's really weird design choice not to have the ability to toggle it. Right now only solution is to not to use desktop app, which in turn makes discord to have same usability for chats as whatsapp (requires phone to be connected, as you must use some random VNC or something..) or less (no desktop usage at all, so that you fokkin get the notifications)

    Most of the time I haven't used my laptop (nor pc) in hours, but its awake in my room. I'm somewhere else and I have no idea someone has even mentioned my @. Kinda makes the platform unusable for any communication that might ever require prompt answers.. Or heck, even might have the need to know that there are new messages.. We've succesfully made news - now with VoIP!

    100% agree, I think much like hangouts sending those immediately if you are afk from your pc. Sometimes i get 0 notifications and it drives me mad!

    This is pretty important to me. A few of the computers that I have logged into discord are sometimes used by other members of my family when I'm away or out of the room. This means that I get effectively zero notifications at all when this is the case. I'm also not convinced that some of the platforms I run the client on are properly triggering AFK-ness, and as such, i never get any notifications on my phone unless I close the discord client on all machines altogether.

     

    IMO, the change made a while back that only sends you push notifications for the first three messages in a conversation you haven't been pinged in was plenty. It would be great if I were able to toggle this on and off, or set the timeout to zero.

    Either that, or have it send number notifications of discord isn't focused on.

    My work uses Discord as a primary means of communication and I cannot take any real breaks since I need to stop my break for any important thing that involves me.  However,  I need to leave the desktop app open but when on break I cannot just wait for a ping to tell me something's come up.  I need to COMPULSIVELY check my phone to make sure I'm not missing anything that requires immediate attention.  It's not fair but I need to deal with it.  (Psst, Discord team,  this is where you step in and fix the problem before businesses ditch your platform *wink wink*)

    It doesn't make sense from a marketing standpoint for Discord to ignore such a requested feature that would help so many...

    I feel like the company is trolling its users...like ill give you the bare minimum amount of minuets until you're notified that you received a message.. out until the worst amount of minuets until you're aware that someone messaged you...but 0 minuets, nope cant do that for you, that's out of the question. 

    @support: get this fixed

    Please fix this! A 0 minute option or whatever, just make it possible!

    if I'm playing a game on my PC (fullscreen most likely) then I probably won't notice desktop discord go off, so I've taken to just shutting it down or temporarily using a browser tab instead so I can get notifications on my phone (hopefully, but android notifications just disappearing into the ether sometimes is a separate issue)

    Just chiming in that I find this incredibly frustrating. I turned off my desktop notifications because honestly, the way windows handles notifications kinda sucks - but i STILL WANT those notifications on my phone, every time, and it pisses me off how many messages I'm missing because those notifications are hidden from me :(

    I have missed so many important messages because I was looking at Discord on my desktop and stepped away with my phone in my pocket, only to find myself back at the PC later with the app still in focus and all of my missed messages. I don't care that one of my *devices* sent a read receipt, that isn't a guarantee of anything. This experience is so incredibly frustrating. It seems so simple to allow all notifications to go to mobile.

    Same here... Discord is online 24/7 on my computer because I use it to talk to work mates, and my computer is online 24/7. Which basically means I NEVER receive push notifications in my mobile of important messages from work when I have to leave for a moment or a few hours. 

    I decreased the "push notification inactive timeout" to 1, but even after I left my computer for way more than a minute, no push notifications!! 

    I'm running discord on Linux, the official tar from discord website. 

    I'm not the only one having this problem on our company, and we're considering switch back to hangout just because we can't trust discord to deliver simple direct messages to mobile!!

    This relates to a newer, but still unanswered support post: https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360043088512-Displaying-Discord-Notifcations-on-the-Phone-and-the-Computer-at-the-same-time-

    I think Discord just doesn't want to add this feature, for whatever reason. Guess I'm never using it on the desktop again? Too bad for anyone who needs this for reliable communication.

    For those who don't get notifications regardless of how long they are away from their computers:

    I have done some research and found that phantom inputs are to blame.

    If you are on Windows, I wrote a program to help you identify what causes it. Simply follow the instructions listed on the page and enjoy! https://github.com/xaviergmail/DiscordNotificationDebug

    For non-windows users, try unplugging all unnecessary peripherals until you find the culprit.

    That might be helpful for some users, but not for me.  I want to get notifications on mobile regardless of whether there's "phantom inputs" on my desktop.  I want to receive notifications on mobile even if I'm in the middle of typing something into Discord on my desktop.  I always want notifications on mobile, no matter what.

  • japzone

    Yeah, Windows isn't great at notifications and I often miss messages because of it. Having the notifications just be on my phone is way better for me.

    Jerl I have added another tool which forcibly triggers the idle timeout for those who are unable/unwilling to fix their phantom input issues. Check the github page and read the "Discord Notification Forcer" section!

    Looking at the documentation, it appears that forces my status to be set to "away" which is a dealbreaker - I'm almost never actually away if my computer is on, but making users think that I'm away is problematic.  I need to appear as online and able to respond to support questions at all times that my computer is powered on.  Lots of the people that come into the server looking for help don't know anyone in the server, much less my own availability habits, and would assume that if I show up as away, I'm not available to help them.

    I think this is something that only Discord themselves can fix by allowing us to just disable the anti-helpful feature altogether.

    @Jerl The tool doesn't interact directly with discord, but will trick discord into thinking you are away. Note that this only sets you as 'Away' for 1500 milliseconds (A second and a half) and then it will reset back to its original value. The only downside to this is that your status might seem to flicker to the people who are staring at your profile although I'm not sure that it will even appear to flicker for everyone due to the delay in status updates for the servers you are in.

    And Discord will still think I'm away even if I'm actively typing a message into Discord itself as this process occurs?  I don't want it to only send me messages if I'm inactive for 30 seconds or more as your documentation suggests setting it.  30 seconds honestly isn't any better than 1 minute.  If I set it to 1 second, wouldn't it flash as "away" for 1.5 seconds, then show as online for only one second before flashing as away again?  Realistically, I would actually probably want it to activate every 200ms or so, in which case if it works the way it sounds like it does, it would effectively never show me as online.

    The documentation recommends 30 seconds for the average user. However, you are able to change it to be as low as one second if you'd like for your use case. From my testing, due to the inherently slow nature of push notifications I have not found a benefit to setting it any lower than 3 seconds but you can configure it however you like!

     

    Edit: I didn't see your edit. Yes, it would show you away for 1.5 seconds then online for 1. I can edit it to make the idle timer configurable as well, but there is a certain threshold at which discord doesn't detect you as being away for long enough to send the notification  (somewhere under 1 second I don't know exactly but you could tweak it until you find the values that work best for you)

    Showing me as offline for 1.5 seconds and then online for 1 second would not be suitable for my needs.  If the idle timer isn't capable of going low enough for this to become a non-issue (e.g. available for 200ms, away for 20ms) and still function, I don't think this tool would be suitable for my needs.  I'm pretty sure that only Discord themselves can solve this problem by allowing us to opt out of this anti-feature.
