LIFT App Diagnostics
If you think you are having any type of issues with our application and service, your first step is to double check your phone and connectivity environment. The easiest way to do this is to run diagnostics from within the LIFT Messaging app.
Open LIFT and tap on the menu in the top right, then tap SETTINGS and scroll down to DIAGNOSTICS. As soon as you tap diagnostics, they begin by checking a number of services and constraints.
Below is a brief overview based on Apple iOS. Android users will see something very similar. If any item is RED then it needs to be addressed to ensure proper operation. Specific error message definitions can be found App Diagnostic Error Messages
|Host connection||- Checks to make sure the device has data connectivity and can reach the LIFT servers.|
|Check your internet connection. If you are on WiFi, try cellular. If cellular work and Wifi does
not, then check with your WiFi admin to make sure snpp.liftmessaging.com is not blocked.
|User Login||- Confirms your login username (typically your pager number) and password.|
|Subscriber ID||- Reports LIFT Messaging ID. This confirms from the server your messaging/pager ID.|
|Latency Check||- Reports the time it takes to pull 20 messages|
|This is informational only, high latency (greater than 10 seconds) will be due to your
internet connection speed to our servers.
|Push Alert Check||- Push alerts enabled within the LIFT app|
|Device Token Check||- checks device ID matches for Push Alerts|
|This is a self-correcting step. If there is an error at this step, re-run diagnostics to verify it
was fixed. If it remains red, close the app and try again.
|Contact Sync||- Check access to address Book as well as syncs contacts.|
|If this step fails, you have not allowed access to your phones internal address book.
LIFT users who are in your phone address book are automatically added to your LIFT Messaging
app address book. While this happens periodically in the background, this step does a forced update.
|Push Test||- sends a test alert and verifies that the alert is received as well as providing a reference time.|
|If this step fails, check your notification settings.|
|Battery Optimize||*Android Only. Click HERE to learn more about battery optimization. Applies to Android OS 7 and higher. If you do not see this, then you do not have this option.|
