    Lock Screen


    I cant get the lock screen notifications to work for mail and calendar, when I go to add them they are just greyed out and don't appear.

    Has anyone got them working and can help me figure it out.

    The only lock screen notification I have got to work is the weather but I don't know what I did to make that happen.

    How can I get the mail one to work.

    Thanks

    Hi - you may need to make the tiles a certain size before they show you live notifications - try making them smaller and check the accounts are synchronised properly?
