Compose Notification UI

How to send a notification from the MagicBell dashboard

Sometimes you may not want to send notifications programmatically. Perhaps there's a product update to make all users aware of, or a promotion to send to a group of users. You can even test notifications by sending one-offs to yourself.

The Compose feature is the way to send notifications using our application's interface instead of the API.

Recipients

Enter the email addresses or external IDs of the desired recipients, select from segments, or pick everyone to notify your entire userbase. Make sure your users are synced with MagicBell by using our create users API to add a user each time one is added to your system.

Notification title

The title will be the subject of emails, and the first, bolded line for in-app notifications.

Content

Content is the body of your notification - the message you want to pass onto users. Content will be the body of an email and below the notification title for in-app notifications.

The content input supports HTML. You can insert header, image, and other HTML tags. You can generate HTML for rich notifications on this page.

Category

Optionally, pick a category for this notification. Categories control the delivery channels that the notification will be delivered on.
