Defining a token

We call placeholders of the dynamic text as Tokens. Tokens should be enclosed within a double pair of square parentheses like.[[yourTokenName]] While creating/editing a Notification, you can any number of such tokens to the input fields. Before displaying this Notification on your website, we scan all the four fields, mentioned above, for tokens.

Setting default token values

After creating a Notification, if you used tokens in any field, you’ll get to see a table on the same page. Therein, you’ll see options to set their corresponding default values. You are supposed to pass the token data via our Javascript API (next section) – in case you don’t we replace the tokens with these default values. You can also choose to Hide notification if any of the token values are empty. If you select this option, in a corresponding situation, the Notification is not shown on your website.

Passing token data via the Javascript API

E.g. if your tokens were[[user]], [[place]] & [[gender]],

Add this extra parameter in the javascript API,

notify_visitors.tokens = {'user':'', 'place':'', 'gender':''};

Filter clickthroughs based on token data

Every time users, on your website, click on the Notification’s call-to-action button, we record the click and also persist the token data (realized values) for that user. This data is presented back to you in the analytics section wherein you can filter clicks based on the token value.
