Send Push Notifications from Mixpanel

Using Mixpanel you can contact your users through mobile push notifications. Select Android or iPhone and style the message to your liking in order to reach your audience.

Creating a Push Notification

To create a new push notification, navigate to the Messages report and select “Push Notification” from the “Create new message” dropdown. This will give you the following form:

Select iPhone or Android rom the Control Panel to see how your message will appear on the user’s phone, and then write your message directly on the preview phone screen. You can also choose to add an A/B test (link to A/B Test overview doc) to your push notification by selecting “ADD AN A/B TEST” button.

Target Users

When you submit the form, it will ask you to define the targeting criteria for your message. You can use many combinations of profile properties when you're creating your message.

Schedule your SMS Campaign

Once you've targeted your users, you just have to schedule the SMS campaign. There are two options for scheduling SMS campaigns:

  • ASAP messages: These messages go out to individual users as soon as they match the targeting criteria. It's common for users to go from "not matching" to "matching" - many messages include a time-based requirement such as "last login was greater than two weeks ago", or one based off of other profile properties that may change.

  • Scheduled messages: These messages can be set to go out at a specified time, day of week, and interval. For example, you could set your message to go out at 9am PST every Wednesday. When the message runs, it finds all the users who match the criteria you have defined and sends it to them.
