Setup your Firebase Cloud Messaging
In order to have mobile notifications in our Android app, you need an API key.
If it is not automatically configured (for instance for On-premise or Odoo.sh) please follow these steps below to get an API key for the android app.
The iOS app doesn’t support mobile notifications for Odoo versions < 12.
Create a new project
First, make sure you to sign in to your Google Account. Then, go to https://console.firebase.google.com and create a new project.
Choose a project name, click on Continue, then click on Create project.
When you project is ready, click on Continue.
You will be redirected to the overview project page (see next screenshot).
