Q. Can I schedule a push notification? 

Push notifications are sent immediately and cannot currently be scheduled.

 

Q: How frequently do users receive the automatic push notifications?
  • There are automatic push notifications linked for two features; lessons and prizing and each have a schedule for repeating notifications:
  • Lessons: Sent on days 1, 3, 7, 13
  • Prizes Sent on days 1, 4, 9, 16
This schedule starts when a user completes a lesson in any course in their EdApp account. It must also be configured by the account administrator - find how to configure notifications here.

For example, if the account has set lesson notifications to be sent at 9am:
  • User completes a lesson on Monday the 3rd of January,
  • A lesson notification will be scheduled for 9.00am on Tuesday the 4th of January
  • If the user does not complete a lesson after receiving the notification, the next notification will be scheduled on Friday the 7th at 9.00am and so on
  • When the user does complete a lesson, the schedule is reset and they will receive a notification the next day.
