A Push Message allows you to build a push using the typical message functions like title, deep link, key/value pairs, and creatives.
To add a push message to your Workflow, click the + button.
Select Send push message from the pop-up modal.
This will open another modal where you'll be able to craft your message.
Make sure to give your push message a name by clicking the Untitled Message copy at the top of the modal. We'll use this name to identify the message's "push sent" event in the Events section of your Localytics Dashboard.
You can also customize messages by Application (iOS, Android, Web) by using the icons on the left navigation or by selecting from the dropdown in the right editing column.
Add a title to your push as the header of the message. The title will appear as a bold text above the message. The title is an optional piece of copy for your push message—so feel free to skip it if you’d prefer.
Finally, it’s time for the most important part of your message—the message body! The message body is the only copy that is mandatory.
We do our best to show you an example of what the message will look like on the left. It’s important to note that there is no official character limit for the message body since each phone and OS will handle the content differently.
Localization allows you to create unique messages to customers based on language set all within the same message editor.
Once you click on enable localization, you'll choose a default language.
Continue adding languages using the dropdown feature or through options.
Remember you must create new messages. Copy is not translated or copied between messages providing the most flexibility in crafting unique and personalized messages across applications.
Cycle through multiple messages within the same editor by using the left and right tabs near the Location field.
You're also able to personalize the title, body, and rich media embed by using Liquid templating (sometimes called dynamic content). Simply place your cursor in the appropriate field and select +Personalize above the Body field. Read our full guide about Liquid here.
On the left side of your Push Message builder, you’ll see a preview of what your message looks like as you build it. It’s important to note that this is just a preview. Depending on the phone type and style your message will translate differently (ie, an iPhone plus might look different from a regular iPhone).
You'll be able to Simulate a customer by toggling the "Simulate" button available on hover within the Message Preview. Use the Randomize option to populate customer IDs or Profile Lookup to add a specific customer ID.
On the bottom left of the Message Editor, you'll be able to access an overview of your messages. This is to provide an easy view of all of your messages, especially if you are creating and managing multiple messages within the Message Builder.
After you've crafted your push message (and checked it between all of your grouped apps), click the Add button to add the push to your Workflow.
