CloudWalk Manager - Push notifications

  1. Functionality
  2. Interface presentation

Functionality

Push notifications are used to interact with POS terminals. Notifications are instantly delivered, and if the POS terminal is out of reach, the notification remains on a queue for up to 35 days before being removed.

Currently, there are two types of notifications: Instant display and Processing.

Instant display

The notification is simply displayed on the POS terminal screen.

Practical use cases:

  • Welcome the POS operator;
  • Notify the POS operator that there is a scheduled update;
  • Request the POS operator to get in touch with the customer support.

Processing

The notification will not be displayed on the POS screen. Instead, the notification will be stored on the POS file system, on the file cw_notifications.dat under the key processing_message, so that your application can dynamically process it.

Interface presentation
