To Get Started

  • Go to Boosters and then select the Notifications.
  • In the Notifications dashboard, click on the plus sign  (+) on the upper right hand corner. 
  • The Send Notification pop up window will appear. Simply complete the following settings:
  • Notification Text – the text that will appear on push notification.
  • Target Audience – select the audience who will receive the notification.
    + All – message will be sent to both members of your membership site and non members (public pages where the web notifications feature has been enabled).
    + Members – the push notification will be sent to the members and who have access to the selected course from the drop-down.
    If Members was selected for the Audience, you can then select on which members of the course to send the message (All Course or Specific Course).
    + Non Members – Public pages where web notifications feature has been enabled.
  • Action – select an action you want to complete once your push notification is clicked.
    + None – (default)
    + Open Page – you may select a page from your KLEQ site that you want the users to open when they click on the notification.
    + Open URL – you may add an external URL and it will launch on the desktop’s default browser.
    + Open App – your KLEQ Mobile App will launch.
    Note: This is only available if you have enabled the mobile app on your site.
  • After you created the message and selected the target audience with the corresponding action, click on Send.
  • You should get a message that the Push notifications will be sent shortly.
  • Schedule – You may schedule when a notification message should be sent. Simply switch the toggle ON and then select the date, time, hour, minute, second and time zone in the calendar.
    + Edit – For scheduled notifications, you may still be able to edit it.
    + Delete – If you have change your mind and wants to delete the notification, you may also click on the delete button. Then, just click on Continue on the warning pop up.
Important:
Something to remember this is not an instant messaging and audiences will not receive the message real time. The message will likely take 5-10 minutes to be sent to audiences
  • If a member log in to the membership site the message should appear and when clicked, it should open the page you have set up on the Action > Page.

That’s it. That is how to send a manual message.
