Managing projects

Creating projects

Once you log in to the Control Panel, the Applications page opens. Here, you’ll see the projects created in your account. Choose one to continue with or create a new one.

To create a project, press the Add new button at the top right.

Select a project type: Mobile Push, Web Push, or Email.

Mobile project

Here, enter the title of your app. It’ll be shown in your Control Panel and displayed as a default push title you’re able to customize while sending push notifications.

You can choose an icon to be displayed next to the app name in that app’s push notifications – press the Browse button and upload the image.

Select the SDK used in your mobile project.

By checking the I want to add my bit.ly account checkbox, you authorize Pushwoosh to shorten links you send in your messages with your own bit.ly. Using your own account assures all your messages are shortened and sent properly as you control the shortener limits by yourself.

Daily App Performance Reports are sent for the apps with 5o subscribers or more. You can unsubscribe from reports at any time.

Press Save application, then go to configuring platforms.

Web project

Select HTTPS or HTTP depending on the protocol you use, enter the name and URL of your site. The site name will be displayed in the title of your notification by default. Also, you can add the icon here.

Press Create, then configure the web project by following the guide. To configure Safari, see the Safari configuration how-to.

Email project

Enter the project name, upload an icon, and press Create. You'll be taken to the configuration page; configure the email project by verifying your domain and address. See the guide for details.
