3. What is ‘Rating and comment’ feature?
4. What is ‘Push notifications’ feature?
Push notifications let your application notify a user of new messages or events even when the user is not actively using your application.
On Android/iOS devices, when a device receives a push notification, your application’s icon and a message appear in the status bar/notification center. When the user taps the notification, they are sent to your application. In application’s menu you can find Inbox feature, where users will see full history of messages sent through the Conference4me Organizer Panel.
From Organizers point of view you should know that you sent notifications via Conference4me Organizer Panel.
From users point of view it’s important to not overwhelm them with the messages.
In practice you can use push notifications for example to inform users about the last minute room change or remind them about the conference dinner.
|When Organizer sends notification participants it pops-up on top part of their device.||Slide down from the top bar to preview your notification.|
To see history of Push notifications go to main app menu element“Inbox”:
