The first thing which you see after logging into your iZooto account is your dashboard wherein you will get an overview of the daily subscribers on the basis of browser, device, and demographics.
At the very top of the panel, a blue drop-down menu would show the name/URL of the website that you have added. In case you wish to add more websites to your account, simply click on + Add Website and then add the URL.
In addition to that, you can see most recent notifications which have pushed.
You can also, download a report about your subscription acquisition date wise across all device types. This will help you analyze your subscription trend better. And, further, optimize your campaign and take the necessary steps to improve your website for better subscriber acquisition.
The dashboard also shows the subscriber data of the top 5 cities and countries. It is usually seen that total subscribers do not match the geographical distribution stats. This is because this data shows the subscriber distribution of only the top 5 countries.
Overview of your subscriber acquisition based on browsers, devices, demographics and recent notification sent by you.
To send a web-push notification, head to the dashboard > Send Notification.
Head to the Dashboard and then on Campaign Reports. This helps you analyze the performance of your notifications.
Choose from these statuses to further drill down the campaigns listed-
Scheduled - Campaigns that haven't been push out yet, but have been set to be sent at a late date/ time.
For example, you have a sale on gadgets that starts tomorrow. You can schedule them well in advance and make sure that it is pushed out at the right time.
Running - These are the campaigns that are ongoing.
For example, you have set a recurring campaign for a sale on shoes that lasts for a week. While it has just been 2 days, it will continue for 5 more days.
Completed - The campaign that has already been pushed to the user.
For example, the notification you had sent this morning, has already delivered to the users.
Aborted - The campaigns that are scheduled, but halted.
For example, a campaign on a sale of superhero t-shirts that were deleted as the sale had shifted to next week.
You can further drill it down by applying these statuses to these two campaigns-
Type - Filter out campaigns on basis of frequency like
- One-time - That is/will be pushed just once
- Recurring- Campaigns that are scheduled for more than a day

Fill in the name and email of the team member, select the appropriate access control type viz. Admin, Read Report or Send Notification and click on Create. Once done, an email would be sent to the user you just added for activating the account.

Before you start pushing notification to your subscribers, you can make some default settings to make your experience in the platform smooth.
You can add your site logo, which will be acting as default logo for all your push notifications. In addition to that, you can add a Site Title as well. This helps a lot when you have multiple websites and you need to toggle between them frequently.
Chrome Project Details
In order to update your FCM details, replace the iZooto default FCM project number and API key for your website with your own FCM details
Then you'll be asked to enter you FCM details viz-a-viz "FCM Sender ID" and "FCM Server Key", then hit "Submit". This will register you for FCM Migration and will notify your service provider about the same.
It’s recommended to use your own FCM always. Doing that will ensure a seamless migration of your subscribers from one service provider to another.
You could also auto-hide the notification to give a better UX. Twenty seconds is the ideal time for floating the notification on the user’s browser.
