    Welcome to the forums. What notifications? With Nova you can create a widget (or set a gesture with Nova Prime) to expand the notification/status bar or access the notification log. The first one can be found under Nova Actions (expand notifications) and the log is in the 'settings' widget.

    Edit. What phone do you have? Depending on your model you could need some extra steps to access the notification log.

    I am trying to access my notifications log (on Galaxy S7 Active running Android 6.0.1. I can find the Nova Actions--Expand Notifications and can add that to my home screen but that just expands the notifications. I cannot find any "settings" widget. Can you be more specific about where I can find this?

    I have made myself a "developer" following some other steps I found online, but cannot find a settings widget, with Nova on or off!

    Thank you

    I think the notification log is not available on Samsung devices under Nova Actions. Try this from Nova. Long press your home screen - widgets - drag the Nova Activities icon to your screen - scroll down that list until you find 'Settings' - tap on it - scroll down until you find Notification log and select. Tell us how it goes.

    "settings" is not an option.

    The options I have under the Nova Action menu:
    app drawer
    expand notifications
    expand quick settings
    recent apps
    screen lock
    app search
    google now
    search
    voice search
    toggle notificaitons bar
    toggle dock
    default page
    jump to page
    show previews
    nova settings

    I've been at this too long, following all steps I find online. I am beginning to think that the settings widget/notifications log is not available for the samsung anymore!

    No, it's not under 'Nova Actions', you need to try under 'Nova Activities'. These widgets should be on the same row, just swipe it to the left.

    Ah, I found it.
    Unfortunately the Notifications Log only tells me what app sent me the notification, not what it said.

    Thank you for your help!!

    Yeah, that's the way the notification log works. It's useful if you dismised any notification and forgot what it was, but you need to open the specific app to see the content.

    I guess that's why I'm confused. I got a notification that a book I ordered on Amazon was sold out, but I didn't order that book. When I touched the notification I got the amazon app but it took me to my main page. There were no notifications for me there. I also went to my amazon account on my computer and there was nothing there. I almost feel like it was a phishing scam, only as a notification not an email.

    Have you ever heard of something like that happening?

    Never heard of something like that, but I don't use Amazon. Maybe just a temporary glitch on their side.
