Hi there!

I’m building a public app but would also like people to be able to subscribe to specific push notifications.

Translated into a more generic example let’s say I have an overview of all restaurants in a city and want users to be able to subscribe to push notifications as soon as somebody left a review.

As most people don’t want to read new reviews for restaurants but only the enthusiasts, the enthusiasts would like to hit “Notify me” on a restaurant.

I was under the assumption push notifications in general are sent to a device and don’t need other user data. Appsheet seems to require an email address and thus even a login: https://help.appsheet.com/behavior/workflow-sending-notifications/sending-notifications-from-a-workflow-rule-or-scheduled-report

Is there another way to achieve what I’d like to do?

Unfortunately, this isn’t possible without sign-in.

Thanks Brian. That’s what I thought reading the documentation. But then I’m also interested in why it’s not possible. As I understand iOS (https://firebase.google.com/docs/cloud-messaging/ios/client) and Android (https://firebase.google.com/docs/cloud-messaging/android/client) work with device registration tokens, no need to do anything with a users email address with regards to sending a push notification.
