Missing push notifications
There are a number of steps you can take to troubleshoot this issue:
- Check User Profiles
- Check Segment
- Check Push Notification Caps
- Check Rate Limits
- Check Control Group Status
Check user profiles
Check your user profile in the Engagement tab in the User Profile section to see if you are actively registered for push for the app group that you are testing. If you are registered for multiple apps, you will see them listed in the Push Registered For field:
Make sure you fall into the segment that you are targeting (if this is a live campaign and not a test). In the User Profile, you will see a list of segments that the user currently falls into. Remember this is an ever-changing variable as segmentation is updated in real time.
Check push notification caps
Check the global frequency caps. It’s possible you did not receive the push notification because your app group has global frequency capping in place and you’ve already hit your push notification cap for the specified time frame.
You can do this by checking global frequency capping in the dashboard. If the campaign is set to abide by frequency capping rules, there will be a number of users impacted by these settings
Check rate limits
If you have a rate limit set for your campaign or Canvas, you might be falling out of receiving messaging due to exceeding this limit. For more information, refer to Rate Limiting.
Check control group status
If this is a single channel campaign or a Canvas with a control group, it’s possible you are falling into the control group.
- Check the variant distribution to see if there is a control group.
- If so, create a segment filtering for in campaign control group then export the segment and check if your user ID is on this list.
