Inbox settings

Configure the style of the messages inbox

This guide describes how to set up and style the Inbox channel for your Android apps, iOS apps and websites.

Inbox behaviour settings

Across all inbox implementations, you can control if a notification badge is displayed. You can then set whether the notification badge shows the number of not seen messages, or the number of not opened messages.

You can also select the default behaviour to remove messages after a defined period of time or have the message remain in the inbox permanently. This default can be overridden for each campaign from the campaign's Schedule tab.

Click Save to confirm any changes.

App specific settings

Each of the integrated Android apps, iOS apps and websites have their own inbox settings, where you can enable the inbox and style it to match your own app or website. To manage these navigate to Settings > Apps & sites > click on the matching app or website > Inbox Settings.

You can also choose to show a push notification toggle in the inbox header so that your users can easily choose to enable or disable push notifications.

There is a preview to the right of each settings page that is updated to reflect your configuration choices and how these will appear to your end-user.
