Step 2: Make sure "Do Not Disturb" is off.

Google added notification tools in Android 6.0 Marshmallow under the name of "Do Not Disturb", which made it easier to silence unwanted notifications while you're asleep or at work. However, these settings might be preventing your eDispatches notifications from actually notifying you.  Please check the following settings to make sure the "Do Not Disturb" feature is not preventing you from receiving your eDispatches alerts.

How do I make sure/turn "Do Not Disturb" off?
Settings may vary with different Android phones. First, Pull down the notification drawer on your Android device. Some phones will allow you the ability from here to turn off “Do Not Disturb”. if you do not see “Do Not Disturb” in this pull down menu, select the gear or settings button to continue.

Under Settings, locate “Sounds and notifications” and look for “Do Not Disturb” be sure to turn it off.


Step 3: Set eDispatches app to priority (Only if you prefer to use leave “Do Not Disturb” mode on)

If you use "Do Not Disturb" for other applications, you may choose to leave “Do Not Disturb” on and set eDispatches to priority so you’ll continue receiving auditory or vibration alerts for eDispatches notification, even when you are in “Do Not Disturb” mode.

How do I set eDispatches app to priority?
