A notification or message pushed to a client could include an important news item, a message to users about a new entry into the database (a new product for example), or anything else you want your end users to know about. You can include a payload of data to send with the notification, which will be passed to your Remote Form, allowing you to react to the user clicking on the notification.
How does it work?
In order to manage notifications, it is possible to create groups of devices, and send notifications to particular groups, or individual devices. All this functionality can be achieved in your Omnis code (using the notation), or using an admin tool, called Push Notifications, under the Tools>>Add ons menu on the Omnis menubar. Note the tool is an Omnis library located in the Startup folder which must be present for Push Notifications to work in your mobile apps, including your Omnis code, and for the Omnis App Server configuration to be setup.
