Creating a push notification
Creating a marketing activity is detailed in the Creating marketing activities section.
The steps for creating a push notification with Adobe Campaign are:
Once you have started creating a push notification marketing activity, select the template you would like to use.
By default, you can select one of the following two templates:
Send via push notification (on profile): this template enables you to leverage the Adobe Campaign database to insert personalization fields in your notification, such as the recipient's first name.
Send via push notification: this template enables you to send the same notification to all of your application users.
With this second template, you cannot leverage data from Adobe Campaign, but only data collected from your mobile application.
By default, you can choose from several templates for each marketing activity. This allows you to pre-configure certain parameters according to your needs. For more information, refer to the Managing templates section.
Enter the push notification's general properties.
You can enter a name in the Label field and edit the ID. Both the activity name and its ID appear in the interface, but they are not visible to the message recipients.
You can create your push notification within a parent campaign. Select it from the campaigns that have already been created.
You can add a description that the user can see in the campaign content.
In the following screen, you can specify an audience, for example all of your VIP customers who subscribed to a specific mobile application. For more on this, refer to the Defining audiences section.
The last step in the creation wizard allows you to add content to your push notification.
A push notification contains a message in which you can use personalization fields.
To be able to personalize your message, make sure you select the Send via push notification (on profile) template.
You can also add:
A sound ID if available in the application
In the Play a sound field, select the sound to be played by the mobile terminal when the notification is received.
Sounds must be included in the application.
A custom field such as a URL
Badge and Alert/Message and badge type notifications enable you to modify the value of the badge (the number above the mobile application logo). To refresh the badge, you just have to enter 0 as the value. If the field is empty, the badge value will not change.
Confirm creating the activity and the activity's dashboard will then be displayed.
Once the notification is configured, click the Preview button to display the message.
Prepare and send your notification.
To send the final message, use the same process as email deliveries. For more on this, refer to the Sending messages section.
