Notification Question (yes another one)
I have been using the free version to test all features before purchasing premium. I have a Galaxy S8+ and notifications work to the phone in most cases, but curious to know how to get the notifications to appear on my Fitbit Ionic. Wunderlist, Alexa, Gmail and other apps will send notifications to my Fitbit and I have confirmed that TickTick notifications is enabled inside the Fitbit app, but I cannot get it to work yet.

Running Android 7.0 and I do have Alert mode enabled in the reminders section.

I'm still doing some testing, but thought I would ask.

Thank you
Hello,

Are you using Android Wear 1.0? It should be okay with that platform.
No, the Fitbit doesn't use Android wear. Not sure exactly what it runs for an OS other than they built their own OS on sdk platform of some sort.
Was this ever resolved? I'm thinking of moving over to Tick Tick but the notifications to Fitbit are actually a dealbreaker for me. I'm unable to get the TickTick notifications to Fitbit working
Hello,

Did you enable the "Stick on status bar" option? If yes, please disable it and see if it helps.

I'm experiencing the same issue and disabled the "Stick on status bar" but am still missing the TickTick notifications. I'm getting notifications everywhere but my Fitbit Versa and TickTick notifications were coming through this morning (and then stopped). All other notifications are coming through fine. Are there any other tips? Thank you!
Quick update: I am getting the daily alert notification on my Fitbit Versa. But that is currently only notification I receive. Thank you for any help with this! (also sent an email)
Hello,

I'm afraid there's nothing we could do in this case. We do support Android watch in general, but no special adaption for Fitbit. You may contact Fitbit team and see what they could help with the notification issue.
I appreciate the response, but the problem really seems to be a TickTick notification issue. Now, I'm not receiving notifications on my Android device. Android 8.1.0. I've been reading everything in the Help Center I can about notifications and it seems like there are so many quirky settings combinations that need to be just right. Could you tell me what those settings should be for Android 8.1.0. I love this app so much, but the notifications issues in general might be a deal breaker - sadly! I'm sure there is a workaround here. Thanks!
Has anyone successfully gotten TickTick notifications to show and vibrate on the Fitbit devices? I still am having no success. All other notifications work correctly, just TickTick is the problem.
Hi CJ,
I've found that if I add a description to my task, I will get the notification on my Fitbit Versa. It's a bizarre workaround, but it works for me!

Ugh. Have just been testing this out on my Versa 2 as well and it's really clunky. Having to add a text description to every task just to make notifications appear on the watch is not really feasible. Even when I do, the FitBit doesn't vibrate - you have to hear the alert on the smartphone and then pull down the notification list on the Versa 2, then you can see the notification. But if you're away from the smartphone, how would you know the notification was even there? Also, because there's no "default snooze" period, tapping "snooze" on the watch doesn't snooze the task, it just brings up the panel on the smartphone where you can choose how long you want to snooze it for.

I came to TickTick today from Todoist and was hoping to move onto this platform (planning to buy a pro subscription), but Todoist alerts on the FitBit work so much better and that's central to my workflow. Kind of troubling, too, to see that people have been telling TickTick they need this since 2017 and it's still not available. Looks like I won't be spending any money here yet, but I'm also left without a task management solution. :(

Spent some time using Tasker on my smartphone to fiddle around with the Versa and also tested the Todoist notifications (which worked straight off the bat) to figure out the problem with the TickTick notifications.

For notifications to appear on the Versa, they must have both a title and some text. No text = no Versa notification (even if it has a title, and appears - with just the title - on the smartphone handset).

For notifications to vibrate on the Versa, they must have both the title and the text (as above), and must also make a sound on the smartphone handset.

So the reason the TickTick notifications were not vibrating on the Versa even when I added text to the task description was that for some reason the TickTick notifications seemed to be set to silent (by default?) on my smartphone handset.

That part can be fixed but it still leaves the problem of the description text. Tasks in Todoist don't have descriptions (they can have a number of comments, but AFAIK they are not displayed in Android notifications). When the task reminder goes off, the notification has the task title as its notification title, and uses the phrase "Your task is due now" to fill out the notification text.

So what would basically solve this problem for TickTick would be for the app to display some kind of standard text ("Time to take action!" or "Your task is due" or just a full-stop - anything) to the notification text whenever a task does not have a description. If it does have a description, then that can be displayed just as it is right now. This would avoid anyone with a versa having to add a description to every single one of their tasks just to make them notify correctly.

Is it possible for this change to be made?
