Game of Whales allows you to send push notifications to groups of players.
Players can receive push since they have not got a notification within 1 hour yet. If the player is a developer, he doesn't have any limits on the number of push notifications.
Every push campaign contains the following steps:
If you need to send out a push notification to a single player you can use PUSH button on the player's card.
The information about all push notifications is shown on the Push Notifications page.
To open this page select your game, then go to INTERACT (1) and then click on Push Notifications section (2).
The page consists of 4 tabs (one for each push notification states).
Every push notification can be only in one of the following states:
- Draft - a push was saved as a draft
- Scheduled - a push is waiting for when its processing date comes.
- Processing - a push is being sent out now.
- Finished - a push was sent out successfully or it was aborted.
Push notifications are placed on the notifications list according to their current state. Pushes with Finished state are shown on Reports tab. Aborted push notifications have a title with a red background.
You can move the push to another state by using the buttons at the bottom of the push card.
The buttons visibility depends on the current push state.
The information about possible moves is displayed in the next table:
|Current\Next||Draft||Scheduled||Processing||Finished (success)||Finished (aborted)|
V - moving is possible.
- - moving is forbidden.
You can launch every push campaign only one time. If you want to repeat a campaign you need to clone it and then launch the copy.
To create a new push click on Create Push Notification.
To edit the push notification or to move it to another step click on EDIT (1). You can edit a notification only with Draft state.
To delete a push notification click on DELETE (3). You can't delete a push notification with Processing or Scheduled state.
In order to duplicate a push notification click on CLONE (2). A copy of the notification will be created as a draft.
When you open Push Notifications page, only 20 (or less) pushes are shown on each tab. To load more pushes click on LOAD MORE button on the appropriate tab.
If all pushes with the corresponding state have already shown, the button disappears.
