Notification posted

A decision block that checks if a status bar notification is posted.

If the proceed option is set to Immediately (Android 4.3+), then instantly check if there’s a notification currently posted, or not, without pausing the fiber. If set to When transition, then the fiber will pause until a notification has been posted or updated and proceed through the YES path or has been removed (Android 4.3+) and proceed through the NO path.
