Push Notifications

Breton Rafael [redcrested.net] 4 months ago

Using the OneSignal API, this component allows users to decide if they want to receive notifications on their computer or mobile device for interactions on their posts, friendship requests, or received messages after some time away from the site. The notifications are displayed in the default language of the user's device, with translations required.

The administrator can use the OneSignal Dashboard to send messages to all users who have accepted to receive notifications. The administrator can also set the following:

  • The number of times a page is viewed/loaded on the screen before the notification prompt appears;
  • The amount of time spent on a single page before the prompt appears;
  • Whether the system will send notifications for received messages and the amount of time away;
  • The customization of the appearance of the OneSignal bell.

To create the authorization ID in OneSignal, after create an account on that site, go to the https://dashboard.onesignal.com/apps, click on new app/website, then fill name and select web and click on Next. To finish the process, follow this instructions.

Note that using this component may incur additional costs. Please see the pricing table at https://onesignal.com/pricing for more information.

Very short answer, yes and no.

Yes, because each event that generates a notification produces a notification trigger. I also added notifications when someone requests friendship and when the requested user confirms the friendship. Finally, when the user is away from the social network for an amount of time and receives a message in the chat, a notification is sent to that user stating that a message was received. This feature can be disabled and the time is set by the site administrator.

Now the short answer no. The user has to accept receiving this notification and it stays tied to the device he is using. So, if the user accepts the notifications on the computer, his mobile will not receive any notifications. And if the user does not accept receiving notifications, he will not be disturbed.
