Getting Started with Geo-targeted Push Notifications

Geo-targeted push messages allow you to send a push message to people based on their physical location. Schedule a push message to be sent to anyone who enters your church building on Sundays during a certain time, welcoming them and encouraging them to fill out a connection card. 

  • Selecting ‘Everywhere’ will send the push message regardless of physical location. Use ‘Everywhere’ to communicate about registrations, service opportunities, and when you need to get the word out fast for things like closures and emergencies.
  • Selecting ‘Geo-targeted’ will allow you to drop a pin on a specific location, which will send the message to users when they enter that location radius. Use geo-targeted messages for a simple welcome or for encouraging people to check in when they arrive at the church location!

Scheduling the Geo-targeted Push

  • Under Connect > Schedule, enter your push message, date, time, and tag (if applicable).
  • Toggle on 'App push,' select a feature if you would like the push message to open up to a specific feature (see content-targeted push messages, above), and select Geo-targeted from the 'Where' dropdown.
  • Drop a pin on the map to select the radius where the message will be sent.

*Tip:  If you are physically within the scheduled radius for your notification, in order to receive your scheduled notification you will need to leave the radius and then enter that radius again.

  • Select the delivery window when you’d like the push to be sent. For instance, if the message is going out at 9:00 am, selecting +/- 1 hour delivery window will send the message between 8:00 am and 10:00 am.
  • Click Schedule Message!

Managing Push Messages 

  • After a message has been scheduled, you can view it under Connect > Activity. 
  • Change your mind and want to cancel the message before the scheduled delivery date and time? Simply click the garbage can next to the message. 
  • The key on the Activity page will show what type of message it was, and whether it's processing (hasn't been sent yet), or delivered.
