Hi. Since my original post querying the downtime message I’ve been rooting around the app content again and I’ve actually managed to find where the notification information can be viewed again. As well as that there is also an in-app feature where users can sign up for notification alerts by various methods including text or email.
If you select the Wallet icon then the menu icon at the top left of the Wallet page another menu appears with several options including ‘Help &Support’.
Selecting that option gives you various options, one of which is ‘Live system status’. Scrolling down the status page displays live system status info and then below that the information I was after regarding the scheduled maintenance. It’s there at least but takes a bit of cumbersome navigation to get to that important service information.
At the top of that page there’s a blue ‘subscribe’ icon which gives you the option of signing up for alerts by text, email etc. I’ve signed up for alerts by text so, fingers crossed, that works the next time a status alert is issued
Hoping the above info is helpful to some users out there.
