Once you have downloaded the app, choose University of Wisconsin - Platteville for your school, and then log in with your NetID and password. These notifications are push notifications, which means they are not texts. They will show up just like your other app notifications, such as Snapchat or Facebook. 

Here are the steps to change the notifications on your android device. 

  1. Open the app to your Dashboard.


  2. Tap on the three bars in the top left-hand corner of your screen. They should be in the black bar before the word Dashboard.

  4. Then from this menu you will click on Push Notifications.
