In App Notification

App42 Marketing Automation gives you the power to show In-App Notifications to your segmented app users without writing any code. This can be achieved by creating Campaigns and defining your segmented users to whom you want to show In-App notifications. You can also define when and how many times you want to show them these notifications. You can also define the action on click for the notification. These actions can be any URL, Custom Code or even another Event.

In order to achieve this you have to enable campaign management through the code. Note that App42 has a different SDK for campaign management and is available for download under App42-Campaign folder of the respective SDK. You have to put that binary in your project path to enable it.
