⚙️ User notification preferences


NotificationAPI stores your end-users' notification preferences and automatically applies it to outgoing notifications. Notification preferences for a user can be set in different ways:

  • Our pre-built Notification Preferences Widget for your front-end (for users)
  • Our APIs and SDKs to programmatically set the preferences (for developers)
  • Coming soon: visually set the preferences from our dashboard (for non-technical team members)

Let's cover this all:

Notification Preferences Widget

Our notification preferences widget works out-of-the-box with most front-end frameworks and automatically displays and syncs the user's preferences with our servers.

There are 2 ways to access the widget:

  1. Through the ⚙️ icon on our in-app notifications widget

  2. Programmatically through our front-end SDK:

// npm install notificationapi-js-client-sdk
import NotificationAPIClient from 'notificationapi-js-client-sdk';

const notificationapi = new NotificationAPIClient({
clientId: 'CLIENT_ID',
userId: 'USER_ID'

Programmatically Update Preferences

You can set the user preferences programmatically from both your back-end and front-end code:
