UM app never notifies of any problems! :(


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · UM app never notifies of any problems! :(

The most important thing about notifications would be to alert of any issues arising at the printer, such as leveling problems, nozzle hiccups, flow sensor issues etc. However, the UM app (android) only sends a notification about the start of the print (which is useless; after all I know when the print was started) and its end.


What is worse, the app declares that the print process is running, even if the camera clearly shows that it is stalled.


Maybe it's just me and there are some settings somewhere that I haven't found. But I really really strongly feel: if you (UM) go through the trouble of writing a notification app, be sure to notify of any errors/exceptions.

    It is not just you, it is the way, how the notification service is currently working.

    And you are absolutely right, that it makes no much sense to just get a start and end notification. I have tried it for some days but turned it off again until there comes an update with more useful notifications.

    I had posted this in 2018. Now we are in 2020, and the app still does not notify the user that a filament has run out. This is really disappointing.
