I am needing to send notifications to all users of my app based on “announcements” being posted. I am currently using the bell and red dot icon, however, I can’t seem to find a way to send the notification to all users and then remove the notification when one user had “seen” the announcement.
All help is appreciated.
Make a kind of notification that can only be excused by pressing a button. When this button is pressed it changes the current users seen noti = yes
And on this noti, it has a conditional that says if current users seen noti is no then show this mf noti
Like our colleague mentioned above, you put incidente The workflow where you press The button to write New post and send The notification to all users.
Yes, I think the first issue I’m having is that I am having trouble getting my announcement to notify all users. My notification data set includes recipient = user, but that doesn’t seem to create the notification for all users.
Below is screenshot of workflow when i “publish announcement” (button click). and my data sets for both the actual announcement and the notification.
Here’s what you can do
Create a Post Announcement field on your Announcement Notification dataset to tie them together.
Create an Active field on Post Announcement and make it a yes/no
Once a user pushes the ‘close’ button or ‘ok’ button, run the workflow to create a new Announcement Notification. The fields to pass here would then be ‘Body’, ‘Recipient’, Seen, Post Announcement
Body - I’m not really sure what this is or why
User - Current User
Seen - Yes
Post Announcement - Search for Post Announcement’s:first item (where Active = yes)
Then just have your conditionals on the actual notification element to be INVISIBLE initially and SHOWN if the user has 0 Announcement Notifications that match the current Post Announcement that is Active
