Create your notifications in the iAdvize platform

Thanks to iAdvize, you can customise your notifications on your own to engage with your visitors.
We released our intuitive tool "The Notification Builder" and reviewed the different templates to meet your needs and maximise your performances. 

This video introduces you to the iAdvize Notification builder and gives you tips on how to use it:

 

1. Enable the Notification Builder

 Access the Notification Builder in Engagement > Notifications

Only Administrators have access to this section.

2. View your notifications

You may see all your notifications in Notifications.
 
Thanks to the preview, you can see your former and new notifications.

Tip: to optimise iAdvize performances, please replace former buttons (the ones marked as "obsolete") with new ones.
 
 

3. Create a new notification

  • Click on "+" to create a new notification
  • You can  provide a URL to get a preview of your website in the background during your notification customisation
  • Thanks to the Notification Builder, you can choose:
    • your template (Classic, Invitation, Messaging, Badge or fixed button)
    • the image to display (icon, simple or multiple avatars)
    • your style (colour, character font,...)
    • the notification position on your website
    • various options (reduction, closing behaviour)

The video below details the different types of notifications and shows you when to use them:
 

4. Validate your notification display

 
  • During your notification creation, you can validate the following views:
    • desktop or mobile views
    • the channel used (chat, call, video, Messenger, Text Messages)
    • languages supported by iAdvize

5. Save your notification

  • You can save your notification by clicking on "Create"
  • You can select a former button to replace it so you don't have to manually change all engagement rules

6. Manage your notification language

  • If the language is not forced in the iAdvize tag: the notification will be in the same language as your visitor's browser
  • If the language is forced in English (for example) in the iAdvize tag: the notification will then be displayed in English for all visitors (regardless of the language configured in the browser).

Available languages (31): Arabic, Basque, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lithuanian, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Taiwanese Mandarin, Turkish, Ukrainian

7. Message "Your replace request has failed, please try again later"

When you are at the stage of replacing the old notifications with the new ones, a message "Your replace request has failed, please try again later" may appear.

Generally, it indicates that a "fallback action" to Messenger, Twitter or SMS is configured in your targeting rules.

It is, therefore, necessary to manually remove these fallback actions, while replacing the notifications, and then to return them if necessary.

To do this, please go to the Engagement section, then Targeting campaigns and click on the impacted targeting rule(s).

In order to comply with the WCAG AA accessibility standards, our R&D team used H1 tag to display titles in iAdvize chat boxes. This was done to follow accessibility recommendations that allow a maximum number of users to use our functionalities in an optimal way.

Knowing that this element is rendered in an iframe, which means in an independent document, this H1 is not indexed by search engines as a page title.

Moreover, the robots meta tag contains "content="none" in our iframes to explicitly tells search engines not to index this content.
