Unsociable hours

Morning

Just joined but last night I got woken up at 2am by my app on tablet and phone both binging at me. For some reason mfp decided that 2am would be a good time to send me a notification stating that I had not logged my lunch.

Really?!? 2am? Come on mfp that's ridiculous!

    Just go into your settings to turn those notifications off. Or, just turn your phone off while you sleep.

    I hate this too. Surely companies can set it so it doesn't notify someone at unsociable hours?

    What else would you like companies to do.
    How hard is it to change yourself. No wonder we are fast becoming a nation of brain dead people.

    Sad but true.

    my guess is tha tyou aren't in the US for time zone - so what is normal time for the US is early morning overseas - but like others said, you can turn off notifications on your device; you can set up silent hours (i.e. i don't get anything from 9:30pm to 7am because of silent time)

    My guess is that push notifications are scheduled for a certain time in whatever time zone the servers are in. That may or may not be "unsociable" hours for you depending on where you are in the world.

    Thousands/millions of users with different schedules in the day/night -- from police, firefighters, medical, airlines, military, students, and on and on. How would you expect a company to know what hours people keep? Just learn the technology or turn the phone off.

    And certainly you realize not everyone keeps the same hours as you? Plenty of people do shift work (nurses, first responders, etc). Not everyone works a 9-5 job (and ummm...let's not forget time zone differences etc? Right? I mean...really?) and gets to be safe and snug in their beds at 2am.

    You should be able to adjust the settings on your phone so you only get notifications during your sociable hours, whatever they are for you. That will apply to all your apps and notifications.
