What triggers the notification?



Someone comments on your Tour or Collection

You will be notified when another user comments on your Tour or Collection. We bundle these notifications and send them at most every 2 hours.

Your Facebook friend joins komoot To receive this notification, your komoot account must be connected to Facebook.
Someone follows you You will be notified as soon as another user follows you.
Someone likes your Tour or Collection As soon as someone "likes" () one of your Tours or Collections, you will get a notification.
Someone you follow completes a Tour

You will only get bundled notifications about completed tours from users you follow if you haven't looked at your Discover feed in the last 24h. Otherwise, the assumption is that you've already seen the Tours and don't need to get notified about them separately. 

Completed Tours from users you follow, who also follow you and who are in your close friends list will trigger the bundled notification immediately, without considering the 24 rule.

Note: If the Discover feed is not yet available in your country, you will receive notifications about each completed Tour, from users you follow.
