Creating a System for Sending Push Notifications to Specific Users
In this meeting, the participants discuss the implementation of push notifications for certain groups of users based on specific conditions. They mention using FCM tokens from the user's table to send push notifications. The main question is whether to create a system that automatically sends notifications when a certain event occurs or to manually trigger notifications for specific groups of users. They suggest using a background task to run a function that handles the logic of sending notifications. They mention the use of a queuing table for pending notifications, which allows tracking of successful sends and prevents sending duplicate notifications. The aim is to send individual notifications to users who meet the criteria rather than broadcasting to pre-defined cohorts. The participants find the suggestions feasible and appreciate the mental model provided. They plan to revisit the topic for further discussion.
