  4. Create a delivery for both iOS and Android.

Send notifications on iOS

NOTE

This capability is available starting Campaign v8.3. To check your version, refer to this section

  1. Select the Deliver on iOS delivery template.

    NOTE

    The Silent Push mode allows a “silent” notification to be sent to a mobile application. The user is not made aware of the notification’s arrival. It is transferred directly to the application.

  5. In the Title field, enter the label of the title that you want to appear in the list of notifications available from the notification center.

    This field allows you to define the value of the title parameter of the iOS notification payload.

  6. You can add a Subtitle, value of the subtitle parameter of the iOS notification payload.

  7. Enter the content of the message in the Message content section of the wizard.

  8. From the Sound and Badge tab, you can edit the following options:

    • Clean Badge: enable this options to refresh the badge value.

    • Value: set a number which will be used to display directly on the application icon the number of new unread information.

    • Critical alert mode: enable this option to add sound to your notification even the user’s phone is set on focus mode or if the iPhone is muted.

    • Name: select the sound to be played by the mobile terminal when the notification is received.

    • Volume: volume of your sound from 0 to 100.

      NOTE

      Sounds must be included in the application and defined when the service is created.

      Configuration guidelines for iOS are detailed in Campaign Classic v7 documentation.

  9. From the Application variables tab, your Application variables are automatically added. They let you define notification behavior, for instance, you can configure a specific application screen to be displayed when the user activates the notification.

    For more on this, refer to Campaign Classic v7 documentation.

  10. From the Advanced tab, you can edit the following general options:

    • Mutable content: enable this option to allow the mobile application to download media content.

    • Thread-id: identifier used to group related notifications together.

    • Category: name of your category ID which will display action buttons. These notifications give the user a faster way to perform different tasks in response to a notification without opening or navigating in the application.

  11. For time sensitive notification, you can specify the following options:

    • Target content ID: identifier used to target which application window to brought forward when the notification is opened.

    • Launch image: name of the launch image file to display. If the user chooses to launch your application, the selected image will displayed instead of your application’s launch screen.

    • Interruption level:

      • Active: Set by default, the system presents the notification immediately, lights up the screen, and can play a sound. Notifications do not break through Focus modes.

      • Passive: The system adds the notification to the notification list without lighting up the screen or playing a sound. Notifications do not break through Focus modes.

      • Time sensitive The system presents the notification immediately, lights up the screen, can play a sound and break through Focus modes. This level does not require a special permission from Apple.
