Notifying your Users

A place to define and control the various ways to notify your app users about their earnings, conversions, etc.


AppVirality offers the added benefit of automating notifications to your users when they get rewarded or a friend of their joins via their referral link. We know how important this is and hence we serve you three ways to handle these!


You may fire away e-mails to your users for some predictable events.
We provide you with some templates which you may use readily.
However, you may also customize the template to suit your design sentiments 🙂

Doing all this is pretty easy!

Begin by adding/configuring an Email alias to send the mail notifications to users. Navigate to:

  • App Details on your AppVirality Dashboard by clicking on left menu,
  • Click on App Settings
  • Switch to EMAIL tab
  • Click on + Add

you will find a right slider pane with title “ADD/EDIT YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT” as shown below:

If you’d like, you can Test run your push messages from the same place too. All you’d need is that the device should be added to your test devices! Important Note

 


So we’ve already covered Web Hooks for Wallets right? Why again! & How for notifications?

Well, as it goes, the modus operandi for configurations of Web Hooks is same. Update the Private Key if desired, and update the relevant Web Hooks URLs for receiving the payloads.

Web Hooks can be used to deliver an immersive experience inside the app, like employing native app pop-ups, In-app chats, etc. Basically, the possibilities are endless for the creative ones among you out there!

About time now we saw how your Campaign is performing.
