Show Notification

Show a notification message on screen.

The Show Notification action shows a brief pop-up notification with text and an icon.

The Show Notification action can be used as an action in the components of your app (like ButtonsCollections, and much more), or it can be triggered along with other actions as part of a Custom Action.

Setting up the Show Notification Action

In the Layout Editor

  1. Click on the plus (+) sign in the Components panel and select the Component you want to trigger the action.

  2. In the General tab on the right side of the Layout Editor, navigate to the Actions section and select Show notification.

  3. Select the icon and descriptive text to use in your app. Success shares the descriptive text on a green background, and Failure shares the descriptive text on a red background.

  4. You can optionally add Conditions for certain criteria to be met before a user can trigger this action.

In the Action Editor

  1. Select the + New Action button. If you have existing actions, click on the plus (+) sign in the left panel.

  2. Select the data source for your action.

  3. Configure your first action by clicking the first action in the sequence. You can also add Conditions to your actions, if needed.

  4. Choose whether the notification will be for success or failure. To create notifications for both situations, you'll need to set up two different actions.

  5. To add new actions to the flow, hover just underneath an action and click the plus button. In this way you can add the Show Notification action as just one step in a larger workflow.

Check the Introduction to Actions page for a full list of components that can be used to trigger actions.
