- Attendees will be prompted to grant or deny our app the permission to send them push notifications. While they can download and use the app even if they deny us, granting permission after the initial prompt will require them to go into their device's settings.
WHERE DO ATTENDEES SEE THE ALERT?
Within the app itself, EventMobi alerts appear as a pop-up when the attendee opens the app, and they continue to appear in the Event Feed at the top of the app thereafter. Having the alert pop up on the app ensures that your attendees will have to acknowledge it, which is handy if your attendees have opted out of push notifications.
If your app has been downloaded natively from the Apple App Store or Google Play app store and push notifications have been accepted, they will typically appear along with the device's other updates and as a number annotation over the app's icon on your device's home screen.
If you have sent a targeted alert, the attendees in the groups you've targeted will have to log in with their emails to see the alert intended for them.
HOW CAN I SEND A PUSH NOTIFICATION TO iOS AND ANDROID USERS?
To send a push notification with your alert to iOS and Android users who have downloaded the app from their respective app stores, toggle the Send Native Push Notification setting to YES. Keep in mind that this option will disappear if you try to select targeted groups because push notifications are not compatible with alert-targeting at this time.
