How to send event announcements (push notifications)

Send push notifications to your attendees in Brella from the Communications tab: Announcements.

Event announcements are push notifications that you can send to all attendees registered in your event.

Announcements can easily reach people that have allowed notifications from Brella on their device. If Brella notifications are disabled on attendees' devices, then a notifications message to enable/disable notifications will only be seen when opening the Brella App. These notifications can only be received by the user if their device is connected to the Internet.

You can send announcements instantly, or schedule them for a specific time.

Sending an announcement

Go to your event in the Admin Panel and select the "Communications: Announcements" tab from the left side-menu. Then select “Create first announcement”.

Scheduling announcements

You can also schedule announcements to go out at a later time.
