Sending notifications and saving them

Hi. I want my app to send notifications to the user. Would it be possible to do home screen and push notifications?
Also, I want the user to be able to see all previous notifications in the app. For example, if they want to see a notification from 4 days ago, they can go into the app, potentially click a button and scroll down to see all their notifications from any day. How would that work? I tried a few things with tinyDB but I still need some help. Thanks in advance.

Doubtful what you want to do with push notifications is possible with AI2

New? OK, here are some resources to help you learn to use the AI2 tools. A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor’s Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook … the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book ‘teaches’ users how to program with AI2 blocks.

There is a free programming course here and the aia files for the projects in the book are here:

How to do a lot of basic things with App Inventor are described here: .

Also look here and here for more tutorials.

Thanks for the resources. I know the basics but I am not very experienced with it is what I meant :grinning:. I kind of needed help with the notifications, though. What would you suggest I use as an alternative solution? Can the data being sent in the push notif be saved in tiny db for the user to access? Would making a list with all of the values and adding the data to the list work?

Doubtful unfortunately means doubtful. Read all the links for push notifications. If it is possible to capture a push notification, your device can save it. Is that possible? Use the links to the forum discussions and do some research.

Alternative solution? Do not use notifications at all. Use a CloudDB or FirebaseDB and you can share information in real time between users of your app. Use the search function of this forum (the magnifying glass in the upper right hand side of the forum screen) to find advice regarding using these real time databases.

Thank you so much for all your help! This was really helpful and I will look into Cloud and Firebase DB as solutions.
