How to turn off push notifications
Managers who do not wish to receive push notifications when a reporting employee submits a new pending leave request can disable push notifications for the Employment Hero Mobile app by going to their Notifications menu in their phone's Settings.
- If you have notifications turned on but are not receiving any notifications, please try re-installing the app to update the notification permissions.
- Turning off push notifications turns off all push notifications from the Employment Hero Mobile app. It is currently not possible to select which push notifications are enabled/disabled.
