Customized your notification per users

As you may have read the article on targeting for notifications, you know that you can assign custom values for each visitor. These values can be used when sending notifications to your visitors.

We allow you to enrich these variable notifications with a special notation: ${VARIABLE_PATH}.

Example of visitor data for a blog Example of visitor data for a blog

If we want to send a notification that when clicked will open the value present in lastpost_link then we will have to fill ${custom.lastpost_link} in notification's link.

What if my visitor doesn't have a custom variable ?

For now, the notification will still be displayed with a null value instead, soon an option will be available so that only successfully enhanced notifications will be sent to visitors.
