Push Notifications

Push Notifications integrates Tickera with the Pushover notifications app for Android and iOS. After setup, automatic notifications can be sent to your device about new orders.

To receive notifications you first will need to download the Pushover App for Android or iOS . Also you will need to have existing or create new account at http://pushover.net.

Once you have downloaded the Pushover App and created an account, install and activate Push Notification add-on which will create another tab in Tickera Settings area with the following options at your disposal:

Now to set up Pushover Notifications to work with Tickera, follow these steps:

  1. API Token/Key - Go to https://pushover.net/apps and press "Create a New Application" or click the link in the description beneath this field.

    -Add a name

    -Set Type to "Website"

    -Add a description

    -Set URL to the base URL of your Tickera site

    -Optional: Choose an image URL to use for an Icon.

    -Press "Create Application"

    Now copy your API Token and paste it here.

  2. User Key - Go to http://pushover.net. On your dashboard the first "Your User Key" section is your User API Key which you have to copy here.
  3. Device - Input your user's device name to send the message directly to that device, rather than all of the user's devices
  4. Message Title - Input your message's title, otherwise your app's name is used
  5. Type / Priority - Messages may be sent with a different priority. Choose one of this types:

    -Generate no notification/alert - Messages will be considered lowest priority and will not generate any notification. On iOS, the application badge number will be increased.

    -Always send as a quiet notification - Messages will be considered low priority and will not generate any sound or vibration, but will still generate a popup/scrolling notification depending on the client operating system.

    -Display as high-priority and bypass the user's quiet hours - These messages trigger sound, vibration, and display an alert according to the user's device settings. On iOS, the message will display at the top of the screen or as a modal dialog, as well as in the notification center. On Android, the message will scroll at the top of the screen and appear in the notification centre. If a user has quiet hours set and your message is received during those times, your message will be delivered as though it had a priority of  'Always send as a quiet notification'.

    -Require confirmation from the use - This type is similar to high-priority notifications, but they are repeated until the notification is acknowledged by the user.

  6. Sound - You can choose from 21 different sounds to play when receiving notifications, rather than standard Pushover tone. If no sound parameter is specified, the user's default tone will play.
