Push Notification

Updated 1 week ago ​by Amanda Arrais

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 feedbacks in a certain activity or the event itself.

Push to all attendees

To send push messages: PEOPLE > COMMUNICATION > PUSH MESSAGE.

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}}.

How to schedule a push notification to all attendees

As you follow the steps above, you will be able to create and schedule a push notification: PEOPLE > COMMUNICATION > PUSH MESSAGES > CREATE MESSAGE > SEND OR SCHEDULE 

 

All scheduled messages follow Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), so you’ll need to check the time zone difference before you schedule a push.

For example, if your event is going to take place in New York, which is GMT-4, and you want your attendees to receive a push notification at 6 pm, you’ll need to schedule this push to be sent at 10pm. If your event is going to take place in Germany, which is GMT+1, and you want your attendees to receive a push notification at 6pm, you’ll need to schedule your message to 5pm.

Push notification to attendees in an activity 

To send a push notification to the people participating in a specific activity, go to AGENDA > ACTIVITIES, select the activity you want to add the message and click in Send message at the bottom.

Invidual push notification for attendees 

Go to the attendees list (PEOPLE > ATTENDEES). Select the name of the person you would like to send the message to. Click on the button Send message. Write your message and click on Send message.
