How to motivate your community using notifications?
Keeping in touch with your collaborators / volunteers in the field is a real mission!
To help you keep in touch you can use "Push" notifications 📲
What is a push notification?
Push Notifications are messages that appears on your mobile phone screen when you are not using the app.
What is the point of this kind of notification?
Real time communication
You can use it to remind your members of an important event, to let them know a goal has been reached, to congratulate the whole team at once etc... Less intrusive than an SMS but with a much higher opening rate than the e-mail.
From the notification, you member can directly open the application.
Easy to use
You just need to write your message, no need for a layout nor signature.
The message should be short and punchy 🔆
When to use it?
You can decide to send a message at any time from the "Members" tab by clicking on the button:
You can directly edit your message:
When you add a document to your platform.
You can decide to notify your entire team that a new document has been added to their mobile application:
You can send a notification to a volunteer that you add to an action.
When you edit an action you can "Save and Notify" your volunteers.
💡No need to worry about sending a reminder: members in the action receive an automatic notification the day before the event!
You can also follow up with uncertain members. By clicking on "Notify again" you send a notification to every member who has not specified their attendance! 🗓
⚠️ Remember that it all depends on the recipient's mobile settings. If notifications are turned off, they won't receive them ⚠️
