Learn how to setup Desktop Notification and trigger the Desktop Notification with a Follow-Up Funnel.
Please note this feature is only available for Actionetics MD Private Beta users.
Why you would need this
You would use the desktop messenger notifications step inside of your follow up funnel if you wanted to send notifications directly to your customers desktop. In order for this to work, your customer would have had to approve the desktop notification when they opted into your funnel. You would have added a desktop notification element to your opt-in page and the page following the opt-in page. If your customer did not approve the desktop notification, this desktop messenger notification would not go out to them.
What you will need
Important Note In order for the desktop notification element to work, you must place the desktop notification element on the opt-in page and the page after it in your funnel sequence. If you have a redirect override on the page where you placed your desktop notification element your contact will not complete the required steps for desktop notification approval.
