Local notifications not working when app is closed or killed


#1

Hi,
We are making an app with ionic 3 that gives some reminders to users.So we use local notifications
https://ionicframework.com/docs/native/local-notifications/ plugin from ionic native.We also included sound for the reminder. The plugin works fine when the app is running.But when i closed the app or killed i didnt receive any notifications that i scheduled :frowning: . I did spent more time on searching about this issue.Many persons faced this.But there is no proper fix for this bug. Anyone know about fix for this or please suggest me any other ionic plugin for reminder. Note:It should give notifications even when app is killed.

Is this documented anywhere?

Please provide links to issues on the actual Cordova plugin Github that mention this problem: https://github.com/katzer/cordova-plugin-local-notifications/issues

Is this on iOS or android? Are these repeating reminders or single? What OS versions have you tested on?

Beyond those major questions that you need to figure out, I’d also recommending trying to use the Telerik fork of the notification plugin and see if your code works: https://github.com/Telerik-Verified-Plugins/LocalNotification

And yes it should work even if your app is not running. Once you register the notification with the OS, the OS makes the notification appear, doesn’t matter what your app is doing.
