What’s New: Testing your push notifications

Whenever you create a new Push Notification campaign you need to test it first. Previously, test Pushes didn’t show any personalization options such as the user’s name – so you never saw exactly what your users will see. Now they do.
Here’s how it works:
Find the Profile(s) you want to use for testing and mark them as test right from the Profile Page. We’ve also added the CleverTap customer ID right on the Profile page so that you can search on this ID later on when you are setting up your notifications and want to schedule a test.
Profile for Test Notifications
Next, when you are creating a new Push campaign, click the link to Send a Test Push Notification:
Send a Test Push
This brings up a dialog where you can select the desired profile(s) to send your test notification to or alternatively search for a profile directly using email, developer defined customer identity or the CleverTap ID.
Select Test Profile
Test notifications are send to all selected profiles and any personalization fields (such as Profile-Name) you may included in the push notification will be rendered.
