FAQs - Pushing NotificationsLast Updated: December 03, 2018
Q 1: Why does the banner image on the mobile show truncated?
The final look and feel of the banner image depend on the device and browser type. You can have a look at this preview guide before pushing the notification.
Q 2: Why does the notification text get trimmed?
The characters that will be visible depends on the OS, browser, and device of the user. Hence it is always advised to send a test notification to yourself before sending/scheduling a notification. Check out this guide to know the different specifications.
Q 3: Can an image carousel be used on the notification?
No, web push notifications do not support image carousels or GIFs.
Q 4: The notification I received has a pixelated image but the one I uploaded was a high-resolution image.
We process and optimize the image that you upload as it is. In order to avoid, system-specific issues (at the time of notification view), we recommend that you use the option of adding the image URL (HTTPS only).
Q 5: I added a banner image and now the entire text is getting truncated on the test notification.
Have a look at this preview guide to get a sense of how the final notification would look like.
Q 6: What does the notification expiry feature do?
This feature ensures that after the set time, no queued notifications shall be pushed to the subscribers for that campaign. For instance, if you want to send out a notification for an offer that is valid only for two hours then you can set notification expiry to 2 hours. This will mean that after the completion of 2 hours if FCM was unable to reach a subscriber (due to lack of internet connectivity/invalid browser key), it will not try to push again beyond this time limit.
Q 7: My scheduled notifications are not being delivered at the correct time.
Check if the timezone in your profile has been set correctly. You can do that from the My Profile section. Check this article for more information.
Q 8: I had pushed out a campaign and realized that there is a typo. Since it has not been delivered to all, can I recall it?
Unfortunately, once a notification has been pushed, there is no provision to stop, edit or recall it.
Q 9: I have an ongoing recurring campaign. How can I edit the content of that?
You can clone the campaign and edit the content. Once done, push/schedule the new campaign and abort the earlier campaign.
Q `10: The notification preview looked different to the actual notification received.
The notification preview available on the right-hand side of the send notification page is an interactive HTML. Please use the 'send me test notification' option to view how the actual notification would look on a system similar to yours.
Q 11: I do not see the option to set recurring campaigns on an hourly basis.
This is an add-on paid feature. Please send a mail to [email protected] if you wish to have this feature enabled for your account.
Q 12: If I disable iZooto's default UTM parameters but add my own UTM parameters to the landing page URL itself, will it work?
Yes, it definitely works. However, we recommend that you keep the source as izooto and medium as push_notification and change the remaining parameters as per your requirement.
Q 13: I clicked on the notification but the page got stuck at route.izooto.com!
This happens only if the destination website takes too long to respond and/or there is a network connectivity issue at your end.
