If you have a Mac or use Google Chrome, you can receive updates from the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club directly to your computer whenever we publish news!

These are specialised alerts that are sent directly to your computer – whether it is a Mac or Windows PC – the alerts show up directly on your system. To make them appear, all you need to do is visit the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club website homepage and click ‘allow’ when prompted.

These notifications are sent to your device – meaning you don’t even need to have the web browser (or website) open to receive them!

This used to be a Mac-only feature, but we have now updated it to include almost all users. For Macs, the process remains the same and uses the Safari browser to send the alerts. The Mac alerts will appear in the top right of your screen and then go to the Notification Center.

Windows users can now also join in on the fun, thanks to Windows 10’s in-built notifications area. Similarly, Google Chrome also supports alerts and notifications, and these too will show up even if the browser is not in use. Read on below to find out how to set them up!

                  


macOS and Safari:

With the introduction of OS X Mavericks (macOS 10.9 and later), Apple has introduced a “push” notification feature that allows websites to send updates directly to your desktop when new content is posted.

In order to take advantage of this great new feature, simply visit the Leeming Spartan website using the native Safari browser on macOS and a pop-up window will then display.

If you don’t get the pop-up window – fear not – as all you need to do is scroll down to the sidebar. Under the “Posts Calendar” in the right hand sidebar, you’ll find a button that says “Subscribe To Browser Notifications”. Click that and the pop-up will then display.

Then all you need to do is click “Allow

Now, whenever Leeming Spartan Cricket Club publishes a new article you’ll receive the notification directly on your desktop notification area on your Mac!

Please note this only applies to Mac computers running macOS. This feature does not apply for iPhone, iPad or iPod. For notifications on those devices, we recommend you download our Spartan App!


Windows 8 & 10:

Windows 10 also includes a similar feature to the macOS Notification Center, and the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club is taking full advantage of it – allowing users to get Spartan alerts directly on their Windows PC and/or Surface Laptop.

Just like the steps above, simply visit the Leeming Spartan website homepage and a pop-up window should appear asking if you would like to receive notifications from the Club.

Simply click “Yes“, and you’ll start getting your latest Spartan news in a nice pop-up window on your Windows 8 or Windows 10 computer.


Google Chrome:

Google Chrome also has a similar feature to display pop-up notifications from websites, and to set it up you simply need to follow the process below.

Visit the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club website (“www.spartans.com.au“) and load the homepage.

The site should then ask you in the top left of the browser to show notifications, as seen in the image below.

If it doesn’t then all you need to do is scroll down to the sidebar on the homepage. Under the “Posts Calendar” in the right hand sidebar, you’ll find a button that says “Subscribe To Browser Notifications”. Click that and the pop-up will then display.

Then all you need to do is click “Allow” and the Spartan notifications should be sent your way! A test notification will also be sent through to help confirm it is all set up correctly.


iPhone / iPad / iPod

These types of notifications do not work on iOS or Android devices, and are instead aimed only for computers. To receive notifications on your phone and tablet, simply download our free Spartan App by clicking here.


Unsubscribing:

In order to unsubscribe from notifications on macOS, you can simply use Safari’s preferences (Safari > Preferences > Notifications and select Leeming Spartan Cricket Club).

In order to unsubscribe from notifications in Google Chrome, go to Chrome Settings and then search “Notifications”. Click on the site permissions tab and look for the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club.
