Update: this post is only for AppPresser 2, if you are using AppPresser 3 please click here for information about segmenting.
AppPush 2.4.0 was released yesterday, with a huge new feature: segmenting.
This has been one of our most requested features, and it’s finally here. Segmenting gives your app users the ability to sign up for specific categories of notifications, so they don’t have to get all of them. For example, if you have a news app, users can sign up to get notifications only when posts in the “Sports” category are published.
As the app owner, you can choose to send push notifications to specific categories manually, or set it up to send automatically when posts are published. You still have the ability to send push notifications to all users regardless of segmenting.
Let’s look at how this works.
To enable segmenting, first, make sure you are using AppPush 2.4.0 or higher. In the AppPresser settings Notification tab, choose “Enable” next to Segmented Notifications” and save, then you can choose what taxonomies you’d like to be available for segmenting.
Next, add the [appp-notification-signup show_headers=”yes”] shortcode to a page in your app. When app users visit this page, they will see something like this.
Now when you send a notification under AppPresser->Notifications, you can choose a specific category or send to everyone.
This exciting new feature opens up a lot of great possibilities for sending targeted notifications to your app users. Learn more about how to use this feature in our docs.
To use this feature, update to AppPush 2.4.0 in your WordPress admin area. You must have a current license, click here to renew. ICYMI: previous post on other recent product updates.
