We are so excited to announce that… we’ve been really busy! What does that mean for you? We’re glad you asked. We’ve taken advantage of the sweltering summer we’ve been having in Seattle to crank away on some new updates for you in our air conditioned office. You requested and we heard, so without further ado, here are some feature updates you can expect:
Scheduled Push Notifications
Select the date and time you’d like to send a push notification and schedule it ahead of time! You will see your notifications appear in a scheduled state on the Notifications page, and at the predetermined time your notifications will be added to the queue for sending!
Notification Inbox - Coming soon!
Your users can now reference all of the notifications you send in their Notification Inbox! No need to worry about someone dismissing a notification and missing your message altogether. You can now direct your audience to visit the Notification Inbox in your app! Simply tap on the navigation menu in the top left hand corner of your app to reveal this new feature.
Push Notifications with Linking
You can now attach specific content to push notifications! That’s right, gone are the days where push notifications only launched your app, you can now direct your audience exactly where you want to lead them. Link to your latest sermon or an event sign-up page! This feature is available immediately, check it out in your Notification Dashboard.
Segmented Push Notification Groups - Coming soon!
We are actively working on the ability for you to create segmented push notification groups within the Dashboard! Not only that, but your app users can choose which groups they would like to be a part of. Want to send something to just a specific group of people? No problem. Reach who you need at any time, in the palm of their hand. This feature will be available soon, so stay tuned!
We’d love to hear from you as you experiment with and enjoy these new features. Let us know how the updates are helping you take your app to the next level in the comments below.
