Communications: Announcements (Push notifications)

Learn how to send push notifications to event attendees


To be covered


Event announcements are messages that participants will receive as push notifications on their browser or mobile app once they've accessed the event platform. This will depend on the app version they are using for your event.

  • Announcements will only reach participants who have allowed notifications on their Brella account and their devices (desktop and mobile).
  • The participants only receive these notifications if the devices are connected to the Internet.
  • Announcements can be sent instantly or scheduled for a specific time.

What can be added to announcements:

  • A title (max. 45 characters)
  • Text content 
  • Emojis 
    - For Mac users: Press the Control + Command + Spacebar keys on your keyboard at the same time. A small window overlay appears with a bunch of Emoji characters in it. 
    - Other pc: Hold down Windows Key + Period / Full Stop (.) or Windows Key + Semicolon (;)
  • One URL

Publish announcements as stories - Mobile app

Brella now introduces event organizers to add stories and making it an easy way to communicate with the attendees - either by providing them the event related and/or sponsored content.

The first storyline on the mobile app is always the announcements. 

Currently, this feature is available only on the mobile app.
