Plan and send Push news
In order to keep participants informed of developments around the event, you have the possibility to create news and push messages. These can be prepared in advance, but also on the spot during the event, if needed.
1. Click on to create push news for all event app users.
( Targeted Message is part of the Unlimited package)
2. Fill in as desired

If you only want to send out a push message, which does not need to be saved after reading, select ‘No (will only show up as notification without detail text)’. When selecting the last option, the Description field will disappear.
