I’ve done a couple cooks on my Traeger Pro 780 using the built in recipes (chicken wings, beer chicken). I can see the grill download and accept the recipe, set the temperature and probe target. It has the on grill screen instructions, and I can see the grill temp and probe temp on the app (iOS).

For both cooks I didn’t get a “preheat done” notification. I also get a probe temp reached/cook finished notification as well as the grill shutdown notification.

In a manual test (temp set on the grill) I got notification that preheat was achieved.

Does WiFire NOT report preheat notification? Why not?

I have never used this feature, but I can say that Notifications in general, are not working as one would expect ... Visual Notifications only work when the App is closed or the Device is locked ... no Audible Notifications at all since the update to 2.x ...

Actually I must be lucky since I’ve had audio and visual alerts working on my iPhone 11 Pro. I have the notifications set as persistent with sounds so I am less likely to miss them.
It definitely works on my phone and Apple Watch.
Just seems wired the guided grilling doesn’t do the preheat notification so you know to put the food on.
