How might we help users with push notifications?
Don’t ask a user for access until really needing it, and make sure it’s crystal clear what they will get in return.
To keep in mind: It is a special relationship we are building, and a communication that has to be on equal terms.
Step 1#Figure out which approach to take on notifications. Step 2#Looking at how many percentage of the users that will tap “Allow” when asking promotion to send notifications. If the approach isn't working, there will be knowledge to improve.
What can be put in an activity feed and what needs to be pushed?
Ask for permission to help out:
When the users find their way to the activity list - there is a good reason to ask for permission to use notifications. “The 7 days rule: There is a lot to keep track on, let us help you remember to log your drives in the end of the week. (?)”
The question mark icon is for the users to know more about the 7 day rule - what it is and why it is important to keep track of the drives.
Context is critical.
