What are Categories?
Categories are used to tag notifications. For example, you can tag notification Hey, Anand commented on your photo in
new_comment category. Grouping notifications under categories will help your users set preferences in receiving notifications from categories. See Preferences
Creating a Category
A category can be created using
/category API endpoint, or through the dashboard (coming soon).
When you include
category parameter in the send
/notifications API, we'll check if that category exists in your system. If not, we'll create it on the go.
Tagging a Notification
This is how you can tag a notification with a category identifier while sending it through REST API.
"title": "Anand commented on your photo",
"message": "Hey Steve, you're looking cool 😎. Who took this photo?",
"recipients": ["[email protected]"]
If you do not tag a notification in a category, it will not check the notification preferences set by your users, and the notification will be delivered to everyone.
