Sending Test Push Notifications

Sometimes you may find the need to send yourself a test push notification before sending it out to your subscribers. Perhaps you are testing variables in your push, a link or maybe you just want to see how your notification looks like to the subscriber. Luckily, sending test notifications are very easy.

In order to send a notification to yourself, first you'll need to track yourself down within the dashboard. The easiest way to do this is to go to "All Subscribers" your subscriber ID will appear in green at the middle of the page. If the subscriber ID says 'Unknown', try visiting your website then refreshing the page so your subscriber ID displays. If you have not previously subscribed, opt-in to your site, be sure to click "Allow" at your notification prompt.

Once you have added custom attributes you can then segment those subscribers in a Manual Campaign to test a push!
