Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.7. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: Mobile app Push Notifications.

Starting from versions 1.4 (iOS, iPhone, iPad) and 1.4.3 (Android) Moodle Mobile supports push notifications:

1. Install the Mobile notifications plugin in 2.4*, 2.5* or 2.6 (or simply enable it in 2.7**);

2. Connect it to a messaging server, you can use ours in case your Moodle site is registered. Go to Site administration > Plugins > Message outputs > Mobile Notifications and click in Request access key;

3. Users need to connect at least once with the latest version of the app to register their phones with your site;

4. Users can configure notifications in the Moodle messaging preferences (Administration > My profile settings > Messaging).

* For Moodle versions 2.4 and 2.5 the Moodle Mobile additional features must be also installed.
** Only for Moodle different from 2.7 and onwards: If you upgrade your Moodle installation, you will have to reinstall the plugin since it adds a couple of functions to the core Moodle Mobile service. See for more information.

Installing your own Notifications infrastructure

If you have a customized version of the Mobile app, or you want to use your own Notifications infrastructure then you have to install a private AirNotifier (backend server for notifications).

You have to add your app certificates there, see

The message AirNotifier plugin allow you to point to your custom AirNotifier instance using your own access keys.

Remember to install using GIT (branch moodle).
