🚨🚨 All the Notifications
You’ve all seen them. The little notifications that pop up on your phone telling you about something that is happening inside an app that you have downloaded. Whether that’s a friend who has messaged you, an app informing you about the latest news or more likely a very useless notification asking you to “come back”.
Notifications can be annoying, they can be intrusive and that’s why we at Matchday XP are putting the control over notifications in your hands. This is achieved in two different ways:
- Allowing you to customise your own preferences
- Only sending you relevant notifications in the first place
💥 Contest Notifications
To make sure everyone is up-to-date with contests we send push notifications. This is us trying to ensure that you don’t miss a week and reduce your chances of getting more MDXP points!
We also send notifications for
- Picks open : We will send you a push notification when the picks for the next contest are open. This will usually be a few days before a contest starts.
- Picks closing : For those of you that like to wait till the last minute to get involved this is the friendly reminder of how long you have until the picks will be closing and you will no longer be able to enter the contest. If you’ve ever forgotten to make your Fantasy Premier League changes or enter Super 6 and ended up missing out completely you will know that this reminder will be a lifesaver!
- Contest Entry : Keep up to date with who’s entered the contest and when
- Contest Started : When the contest starts you can go in and see who everyone else has picked so you know who your rivals are!
- Winning Contest : When the current leader of the contest changes we’ll make sure you’re up to date!
- Contest Finished : Check out the final standings and who’s taking home the coveted win for this week.
📃 News notifications
It’s that Sky Sports News effect where everyone wants to know all of the news from across the globe as quickly as possible. We’ll leave the transfer rumours to others and focus on providing interesting and visual news, including goal clips, stats, infographics and those anecedotes you can discuss with your group.
🍻 Group Notifications
As you would expect from any chat application send you notifications when your friends send messages into your chat group. We’ll also let you know when they join the group in the first place and of any links that get posted into the group.
⚙️ Your Preferences
If you’re not as convinced that you want to hear from your Friends Notifications or know when we have sent one of the latest news stories into chat with our News notifications then we you can toggle these notification types off within your settings.
In the future we’re also planning on adding a further set of preferences so that you can really tailor the information that is sent your way through push notifications.
The roadmap for preferences include:
- Muting for specific groups
- Team notifications
- League notifications
🍔 Feed Notifications
As well as push notifications we also send updates directly into your group chat feed. This means that you won’t miss out on any of these key notifications when you already have the app open. It aso means you’ll be able to track how the contests are going and who’s saying what within group chat
