Push Notifications

A push notification is a message that attendees receive via their web browser or on their mobile phone. Push notifications can be general event announcements, a poll, or a new request for feedback for a certain activity, or the event itself.

On their mobile device, the attendee will only receive this notification message if they enable this in their device settings. A push notification is sent to the attendee's mobile phone when the app is installed.

Sending Push Notifications to all attendees

To send push messages, simply go to Marketing > Communication > Push message.

When sending a push message there is a 140 characters limit. Do not use special characters such as quotation marks, apostrophes, backslashes, or line breaks
