Hi @TheDJ , thanks for raising this. As I see that this issue persists across all mobile platforms (iOS, Android and Mobile Web) is it correct to assume that Edit Notices have never existed on the mobile-versions of this editing experience? If so, this sounds like it would have to be a conversation with the platform team to ensure that we make Edit Notices in the future extend to all applications, agnostic of whether someone is on desktop or on a mobile app.

See also the blocking ticket on writing an action/core API for this, so that they can actually be exposed. They are currently not data that is accessible other than through the EditPage class, which is bad.
