The Push Messaging component generates push notifications: messages that display on the attendee's device if the app is running in the background. Push messages are composed by event managers and can be scheduled for delivery at any time, so they can be created well in advance or simply written and sent immediately.
Apple servers will not process push messages to apps that are not available for download from the App Store. Speak to your account manager if you need to test the Push Messaging component on an iOS platform before you've published the app, as you will require a special, push-enabled test build.
Note that because push messages are only displayed if the recipient is not viewing the app when they receive it, we advise that you transmit important information using multiple methods to ensure users see it. Ideally, you can send identical message text using a push message, a regular message, and as an announcement.
