A Beginner’s Guide to Pushover for Business

Using Pushover for business is a game changer. Do you use more than one phone or device for business? Then you’ve come to the right place.

How Does Pushover Work?

Pushover will send ‘push’ message to any of your connected smartphones.

You’ll be able to organize messages and notifications from your devices, so you can access them at all times. It’s the perfect way to keep all your notifications in one common space.

You can receive notifications that are important to you, for example job postings, news alerts and emails.

It gets better; you can receive the notifications at a time that suits you!

Why Should I Sign up for Pushover?

Keep Updated

You may need to be notified about something on your computer; or any device that you don’t have handy right away. You can integrate Pushover in to your desktop tools, so you can send notifications straight to your phone! You’ll never miss a thing.

Save Your Storage Space

As you know, there’s apps for literally any need. But, sometimes you don’t want to waste up space on your device. Pushover can simply send you a notification; where you would other wise need to use your browser or an app to find the necessary information.

For example, there are plenty of weather apps. It’s time-effective to receive a quick notification that it’s going to rain today rather than installing an app and wasting storage space.

Quiet Hours

You can set up notification-free times! The feature is called Quiet Hours, which does as it’s described. You can take a break from notifications when ever they’re not relevant at certain times. For example, if you’re spending time with family or on holiday.
