Rethinking the Notification: Passive is the new push

If you have ever used Whatsapp or Facebook Messenger you will know that if you are a part of a group chat you will get notified even if the message isn’t directed towards you.  qiscus group messaging system allows you to be either a participant or an observer.  We built our notification system to compliment both users, participant or observer, well. qiscus passive notifications is designed to only notify you when you are needed.

How it works

There are two types of notification in qiscus; namely; passive notifications and push notifications.

Passive Notifications

Rooms with new messages will display a yellow dot to the left of the Room’s name.  This allows you to know a when conversation is active, but does not require you take action and pull you away from work.


qiscus “@“ call or push notification.

Unlike the passive Room notifications, “@“ calls allow you to send a personal or public notification inside a room.  When you do an “@(user’s name)” 2 things will happen.


1. A notification will appear at the top right of your qiscus app. 


2. Addressing the notification.

-Reply straight away, dismiss or click through the notification to go directly to the source of the message.


Mobile Notifications on Android and iOS.

The same commands for the desktop webapp apply to both our mobile apps when doing “@” calls.

Android Notification via notification drawer.


iPhone notification on lock screen.



qiscus - group messaging tool for teams working remotely.

In many ways, qiscus’s interface is as familiar as using whatsapp.

But that’s where it ends. Using qiscus, you can be superman/woman and manage multiple discussions on your mobile,  then swing over to your laptop to quickly execute your tasks.   


qiscus is designed for teams, platform agnostic and it’s as easy to as chat but as powerful as a project collaboration tool.
