Push Notifications (PN) are a simple way of alerting users to information that they have opted-in to from apps and services. They are similar in that way to an SMS message but imagine it is coming from an app on your phone. A client has full control over Push Notifications, so they can stop/mute them at any time.
Availability of this feature
Push Notifications are available to both RnD Connect and our Branded App, but only if you purchase the "Premium Apps" add-on. Once you purchase this add-on, the RnD Team will enable the PN.
Push Notifications are always available to accounts in Trial. The reason behind this is to enable Trial accounts to experience the full capabilities of our software.
