Web application- push notifications by user role

Good morning, I'm looking into the possibility of sending alerts to users of our web application.   These users have a variety of roles and groups and the notifications would need to be delivered based on that role.   I've seen a number of push notification forge components for mobile devices, but so far I'm not finding one that will work for this particular use case.  (They want the notification to appear like a toast message rather than a little new message type icon that the user has to interact with)

Any suggestions, or should I just build this myself?

Hello Josh,

There are some components for toast message feature. Can you look for this examples?

About the feature to be assing the alerts to users of groups/roles I thin you need to implement that by yourself.

Hope it helps!

That's what I was afraid of, I know how I want to implement it but I was hoping there was some sort of broadcast message component that would speed it up for me.   Thanks!

Hi Josh,

Did you check this component. It shows notification as toast you only need to put some logic to check the roles.

I'm going to go with IziToast, the Pusher component is just for mobile correct?   


I already use Izi to generate incoming call notification toasts.   I just wanted to make sure there wasn't a fully functional push notification component that I was missing.   I'll get started on creating a notification management screen and then create the actual notification logic in a web block so I can stick that on each page.   The downside is that it's only going to check for new notifications on page load (since the web block is only going to run the prep on initial load)

Hi Josh,

The pusher API also exists for Web Traditional. check it here.
