To start, you just need to follow these three simple steps:
- Step 1: Install the Patter Notify Chrome extension
- Step 2: After installation, Authorize Patter Notify on app.net.
- Step 3: Using Patter, subscribe to the rooms you want to receive notifications in.
After following these steps, you will receive notifications whenever new messages pop up in rooms you don't have open. Since chat rooms can get quite busy, Patter Notify uses the following rules to pop up a notification.
- You will never receive more than one notification every five minutes.
- Patter Notify only ever pops up one notification. No new notifications will pop up until you dismiss the first.
- After dismissing a notification, you will not receive a new one unless more happens after the notification.

Patter Notify interacts with app.net on your behalf and so any interaction is also subject to their policies.
