    Swipe up to unlock the phone.
    This will bring us to the home screen with 5 icons at the bottom. We want to demonstrate how to customize notifications from individual applications and to do that, we need to go to the settings menu.

    Scroll down until we arrive at the "PHONE" section and tap on "Sound & notification".
    It has a speaker icon with some sound waves emanating from it.

  6. 6
    Scroll down to the bottom and tap on "App notifications".
    This brings up a list of all of our apps. In this section, we can customize how these applications will notify us and exactly what they do.

    Choose an application.
    We will choose "Fitbit". This will give us two options.

  8. 8
    The first option is "Block, never show notifications from this app".
    It is currently off, indicated by the gray switch that says "OFF".

  9. 9
    The second option is "Priority, show notifications at the top of the list and keep them coming when the device is set to priority interruptions only".
    This is also off, indicated by the gray switch that says "OFF". Right now, Fitbit will notify us in the standard way. This is the same for all of the other applications.

  11. 11
    Choose another application.
    We will choose "Clock".

  12. 12
    The Clock application has the same options and they are both set to "OFF".
    This means the application will notify us normally when there's something to be notified about. We can either block them, which is to never see notifications; or make them a priority. If they are a priority, they will be at the top of the list, and when the phone is set to 'Priority mode', we will still receive notifications for the application. It is possible to make changes in the priority mode settings, but there's only a limited amount of apps that it actually has there. This is a way to configure all of our apps.

  13. 13
    Tap on the icon to enable the setting.
    The switch will then say "ON" and the switch will turn green. Tap on it again to turn it off.

    Some apps may have more options and some may have less, as we can see here in the "Settings" notification setting.
    We can't block it, but we can make it a priority.
