On most Android devices running Jelly Bean 4.3 and above. you can create a shortcut on your home screen that lets you view all your previous old notifications log. even if you have them away. For our example, we use stock Android on Google Nexus 7. This option is not available on all devices (for example… it was not available on the tablet of Samsung). but if that does not work for you we list another option that you can use to access the notification log at the end of this article.

Once you’re in the notification log, you will see active notifications in white, and notifications you closed gray. You can press the gray notifications as you normally would, and you will be taken directly to the source of the notification.
If your device does not have a “Settings” widgets, as our tablet from Samsung, we suggest you use the Notification Saver app access previous notifications. This app displays notifications in the same way the Nexus 7 is, for white light gray and active notifications for redundant notifications. Tapping a notification displays a dialog box with more information and buttons to access the app on the Play Store and in “App Info”. You can also export the notification list as a .csv file (in the application preferences), you can open in Excel. There are several other applications on the Play Store that are similar to communication from standby, you can also try.
NOTE: Apps that provide access to your notification history show no history before installing them. They start recording and history display notifications after installation. Each application will also tell you that some accessibility options must be enabled for the app to work, usually providing links for easy access to settings that must be enabled.
