The notification outbox allows you to review details about all visit offer notifications sent out of AlayaCare, including information about the message type, date and time of sending, sender and recipient names, and whether each message was successfully sent and delivered. You can also resend any messages that were not successfully delivered the first time.
Important note: delivery tracking is not yet available for push notifications. You will be able to see if push notifications were successfully sent from AlayaCare in the notifications outbox but not if they were successfully delivered to a mobile device.

Message group details

In the next screen, you will see further details about each of the messages sent as part of the message group. Each message will be listed by message ID, employee it was sent to, date/time it was updated on, medium (SMS, email, or push), target (the employee’s phone number or email on their profile), status (pending, failed, sent, or delivered), and the branch of the employee it was sent to (for multi-office environments only).
A message will have a status of delivered once it has reached the recipient’s email or mobile device. A status of sent indicates that the message has been sent successfully from AlayaCare. A status of failed indicates that the message was not successfully sent or delivered.
