Dash Portal: Configurable Push Notifications

June 13, 2019

Send travelers automated messaged through Dash Portal's Configurable Push Notifications

Travel and Transport travelers receive push notifications on their mobile devices through our Dash Mobile app, which provides trip updates including changes, delays, trip reminders and much more. Through our Dash Portal technology, travel managers can subscribe to enhancements allowing them to create configurable push notifications that provide additional, relevant notifications for travelers such as negotiated amenity reminders and ground transportation reminders that are pushed directly to their Dash Mobile app. These enhancements require Dash Portal to implement.

As an example, configurable push notifications can be established based on an airport or city code to remind travelers to use the correct transportation service. Designed to assist in providing program information to travelers, configurable push notifications can be triggered by such things as arrival/departure times, airport codes, hotel check-in/out times and even by specific suppliers including hotel property name.

These step-by-step instructions walk you through how to set up push notifications in Dash Portal along with examples of messaging.

To begin, log in to Dash Portal and select Configure Notifications from the menu on the left-hand side dropdown. Select New Configurable Push Notification.

Your notifications are set to push to Dash Mobile!
