If you search for dotview and tasker you should be able to find the instructions to set tasker up for this.

Key item - You must be using the HTC email and text apps as default for the notifications to work as well.
Also go to:
Settings
Personalize
Dot View
Select "Notification settings " and select those you want to show
Also click "show call history" on main dot view screen if you want to see call history.

All the other functions worked fine for me without tasker only email and text notifications would not.
This was with or without a glass screen protector.

Regards

Nice avatar. Now back to your regularly scheduled thread.....

My double tap isn't working either. It worked great up until about a week ago. Now I can answer some calls, hang up calls, but that's it; I can't even pull up the dot view display with the power button anymore. I have a security code (required for work), but it worked just fine with that before. I have restarted the phone twice and uninstalled and updated the dot view app. I am out of ideas as to how to make it work like it used to... 😢

I got mine working!!!!
Basically, I got my case and it seemed to work 50/50 and I found out that it works via 2 magnets on both flaps.
So, how do you fix it: Get 2 strong magnets not fridge magnets but larger ones and place them on either side of the front cover so the magnets connect going through the flap and leave for 2 mins to allow the magnetic field to readjust.
I found this out by developing the idea that the magnets were too weak so I searched for ways to make a magnet stronger and I found a page from "how science works"

I had the same problem and the reason is weak magnet on front. A little dot in the middle! Find a little flat magnet and put on. Should work? After a while the new magnet charges the old one and should work without it? Regards ..

Hi
I have HTC desire 728 ultra , I installed dot view notifications app from the store to use the dot case. The notifications appear on the case but when I swipe it to answer calls or double tap nothing happens , I can't get the benefit of the case. When I checked the settings I found nothing related to dot view . Please does my phone support the dot view case or not?

It's probably because they built the magnet in on the wrong way. I took out the magnet and swaped it on the other side and now it's working.
