What is a Push Notification?

A push is a notification message, that attendees receive on their mobile phone, even if the app is not opened. The attendee will only receive this notification message if he/she enables in their mobile personal settings.

A push notification is sent to the attendee's mobile phone when the app is installed and can be any event announcement, a poll and / or a new request for feedback in a certain activity or the event itself.

Push to all attendees

To send push messages: MARKETING > COMMUNICATION > PUSH MESSAGES.

When sending a push message there is a 140 characters limit. Do not use special characters such as:

  • Quotation marks
  • Apostrophe
  • Backslash
  • Line break

You can send messages with each participant's name, title, company or headline. When you send the push message, please insert the following characters in: {{name}}, {{role}}, {{company}} and {{headline}}.

Frequently asked questions

Yes - you can enter a link to send in the push message, but you may have to shorten the link as there are only 140 characters aloud. Once the push message is received and clicked on by the attendee, it will open up in the alerts page of the app, where the attendee can follow the link.
