Banno’s messaging functionality allows you to send institution-level messages, or messages to specific segments of your end users. It’s pretty simple, but it’s packed with options to make the most of your messages.
How it works
Navigating to the Messages screen displays all messages you’ve created by title and description, as well as their status and their last updated date. Clicking a message allows you to edit messages via the same view as creating a new message.
Creating a message
Selecting either an existing message or the Create message button takes the user to a message screen with the following components.
- The subject for the message, which end users will first view when receiving a message.
- The segment to which the message will be distributed. By default this is set to All users, but this can be set to any segment you’ve created. Below the drop down, there is also an option to + Create new segment
- The message can be created via this editor, with a full range of text editing features. The message can also viewed via the preview link, allowing the user to see both Android and iOS views of the message.
- Schedule message
- The user selects the date and time to send the message, or selects the Send now checkbox.
- Message expiration
- The user selects a date and time for the message to expire, or selects the Does not expire checkbox.
- Send a push notification
- Selecting the Send notification checkbox sends a push notification to end users when the message is sent. This respects the quiet hours 11pm to 7:30am central time, and messages sent during these hours will be delivered after 7:30am. Custom push notification can be set, and can contain up to 150 characters.
