App Notifications in kiosk mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    is it possible to turn on App Notifications (Toast Notifications) on assigned access (kiosk mode)? 

    In normal use case the notifications bring me some information like "Message has been sent..." or something like that. My app shows this information 3 seconds and then close it.

    I tried configuring this via Group Policy and Settings. Unfortunately without success.

    Or is there another simple solution for this?

    Best regards

  • Hi,

    I'm sorry to say that it is no possible to get App Notification in assigned access currently.

    Please refer the description of assigned access of this link: Kiosk apps for assigned access: Best practices. It is said that "They won't be able to switch apps or close the app using touch gestures, a mouse, the keyboard, or hardware buttons. They also won't see any app notifications."

    Best regards,
