How to make the phone “ping” on new notifications?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have an iPhone 12  which I am trying to setup to “ping” me with sound AND on screen notification when ever a new listing is made (but not subsequent comments). 

Any help? Anyone done this?

TSF is web based and iPhones unfortunately do not support browser notifications currently. 

However, you can set up your notification settings https://www.thesilverforum.com/notifications/options/, and also follow the trading sections by visiting those pages and pressing the follow button on the right side. Then you should receive an email when a new listing is posted.

If you add your email to your email app, and adjust your notifications on your iPhone: You can then get a ‘ping’ notification on your iPhone each time you get an email.

Custom Activity Streams 

The best thing IMO is to regularly check the trade sections directly (as email notifications may have some delay) or to make a custom activity feed stream: https://www.thesilverforum.com/discover/

Here for example is a custom activity feed to show the latest U.K. trade listings https://www.thesilverforum.com/discover/347/

you'll never beat James anyway so why worry 😂

It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.
