Having trouble? Here's what to try first:
Restart the app: double-press the Home button, find Slack, then swipe up on the app preview to close it. Tap the app icon on your Home screen to restart.
Reset the app cache: swipe left, tap Settings, Advanced, then Reset Cache.
Turn your device off then on again.
If push notifications don't arrive
Slack won't send you a push notification if you've already seen the message on another device. If you think you’re not getting push notifications when you should, you can:
To test your notifications, swipe left and tap Settings >Push Notifications >Test Notification System.
