    Hello,

    I've been searching for an answer to this past few days but with no success.
    I was wondering if there is any way to rearrange notifications in my pulldown menu (for example, i have VPN activated by Adguard, and Tasker always on first two spots) I would like viber/gmail inbox/messages to pop on the first spot when i receive new message, but they always stay at the bottom ( even after i set them "priority" mode in settings).
    Is there any way to fix this?

    Thanks in advance,
    Filip

    depends on the phone/manufacturer

    on Samsungs, usually, you pull it down, and click the menu button and that opens up a lot of them.

    then we press on one we want and slide it up and over the one on the top row that we want to disappear.

    that screen with VPN and TASKER is just a notification from those apps, has nothing at all to do with what I thought you were asking..... you can't control the order of those reports on that screen. they come in order of receipt.

    Is there any way to change that, maybe with root? To edit some system files or something else? It really sucks :D

    Go into your notification settings, select app notifications, find Viber and set "priority notifications" for it. As long as the others are not also set as priority it should put Viber at the top.

    That's available with Android 5, if you are still using 4.x it isn't, I've not tried it on 6.

    That was definitely not the answer I wanted, but thanks anyway. I will need to make peace with it now :)

    guess I just never gave a hoot, never paid any attention to what order those things show up in.

    I get that, neither did I until installing tasker. Before i could see sender's name, because i only had one app in front. Now when there are two, viber gets in the back :)

    I don't understand why you are seeing the notifications if that is actually the Unlock Screen?
    or have you just used that screen as a Wallpaper?
