4. Add Credentials

Head back to your aimtell dashboard and then go to "View Websites" > "Edit" > "Advanced Settings". Once there, add your API key and Sender ID into the corresponding fields. Hit save/update.

5. Update your manifest

Last but not least you'll need to update your aimtell-manifest.json file that you uploaded to the root directory of your website. If you haven't downloaded it yet (ie you just added your website) you can find this "View Websites" > "Edit" > "Installation".

Simply open the aimtell-manifest.json file and update the "gcm_sender_id" field with your Sender ID and upload it back to your server.

Congratulations! You have now successfully added your own GCM keys.
