Stack authors can send messages to the users of a particular stack using the message broadcast tool. When a new message is sent out, every user who has favourited the stack receives a push notification on their mobile device (see details of how this works in the LTB App here). Those who haven’t favourited the stack can still see when a new message has arrived thanks to the small notification counter next to the message icon in the LTB App.
1. Message list
This is a history of all the messages that the author has sent to the stack. To open a message in the editor, just click on it. The little number to the left of the message subject is a counter for the number of users who have opened the message.
2. Message editor
Messages are edited in a simple rich text editor. You have the possibility to broadcast a message at a particular date (“Publish from”) and stipulate a date by which the message expires.
This is simply a preview of the message as it will appear to the user. There might be some formatting differences though depending on the device.
