Sportal365 is integrated with OneSignal, a leading self-serve customer engagement solution for Push Notifications.

Integrating OneSignal, a leading self-serve customer engagement solution for Push Notifications, with Sportal365 makes possible a new feature called Notify users.

Notify users is available for Articles, Videos, and Galleries, and its main purpose is to send in-browser notifications to users when a new article is published or updated.

We've automated the setting up of notifications for each post so editors don’t have to leave the CMS to copy/paste URLs, and so on. 

To take advantage of this integration, you must first register with the OneSignal platform.

Configuring push notifications

To configure the Notify users article notifications:

  1. Select the Notify users button (it is available only after the content has been created). 
  2. When the configuration panel opens, all fields will be pre-filled: 
    1. Notification Image: by default.
    2. Delivery: by default.

      - Immediately means that the article notification would be sent instantly.

      - Intelligent means that the system will send the notification when users are most active on your website.

      - Delayed gives you a chance to set a specific date for the notification.

    3. Notification URL: by default. 
    4. Notification title: by default.
    5. Notification description: by default.
    6. Recipients: by default.

You can set up the CMS to display default options or not. Your choice. Also, in the configuration panel, you will see a warning message telling you whether the article is published or not. 


Notification URL Implementation Requirements 

In order to set up the URL to be automatically pre-filled, we would need the following: 

1. An endpoint that we need to call.
  • Request type: POST
  • The request body will contain the following:
   "id": "<article/video/gallery id>",
    "entity_type": "<article/video/gallery>"
  •  Expected response
  "url": "<full url of the article/video/gallery>"


Finally, in order to activate the feature we would need the following OneSignal information: 

- App ID
- Rest API Key
