We now have browser push notifications at Pick-a-Wish. This should eliminate the communication problems of those who are email-challenged. Many Wishers don’t know their Wishes have been granted because their Facebook emails are old and not accessible, or Grantors are not following instructions to also send a PAW Private Message to their Wisher, or if they are following those instructions, the Wisher is not logging into Pick-a-Wish often enough to see and reply to the private message.
Now, Pick-a-Wish members will, after opting-in, receive instant notifications in their browser of new posts, mentions, and messages on Pick-a-Wish whether they are logged in or not. After opting-in, you will now receive instant notifications that someone has send you a message or commented on your Wish. But you must opt-in to receive these browser notifications.
To opt-in, simply go to www.pick-a-wish.org and when prompted allow Pick-a-Wish USA to send you notifications. You will then receive instant notifications from Pick-a-Wish in your browser whether you are logged in or not.
Special note to Grantors: In order to ensure that your Wisher(s) are aware of your intention to grant their Wish, please use the Gear Icon on their Profile to send them a Private Message expressing your intention to Grant their Wish.
Thanks for following these instructions in order to keep Pick-a-Wish USA running smoothly!
