Notifications

https://admin.rebillia.com/main/settings/advanced/notifications

Send and receive notifications when important events happen on your account. This is the main method of communication between the business and its customers as well as for the business to receive notifications about events.


Notification Channels

Rebillia offers businesses the ability to connect different communication means to interact with events and create notifications. From connecting your Gmail account, through an SMTP server to push notifications, SMS, WebHooks, and API calls, each is its own channel and can have its own notification content, even for the same event.

At the moment, Rebillia only publicly offers Gmail, SMTP, and In-App Push Notifications as available channels. SMS messages, API Calls, and WebHooks are experimental and only available on a closed beta environment.

Connecting a Notification Channel

To connect a notification channel to Rebillia, navigate to the “Notifications” page, look for the “Channels Settings” side bar at the top-right corner of the screen, and click the “click here” link of the channel you want to connect.

Google Gmail

To connect your first Gmail channel, just click on the big blue “GET STARTED” button. If it is not your first, you can click on the “Actions” button on the top-right corner of the screen and select “Connect a new Gmail account”.

Once clicked, you will be redirected to log in to a Gmail account. That will be the account emails will be sent from. In order for Rebillia to be able to send emails, Google will ask you to accept a set of permissions, allowing Rebillia to send emails on your behalf.

Once that is completed, you will be redirected back to your Google channel page with a channel set up and ready to be used.

If you’d like to change the name from the default “Google”, you can click on the action button on the right corner of that specific channel, select “Credentials” from the dropdown and edit the display name.

SMTP Server

To connect your first SMTP channel, just click on the big blue “GET STARTED” button. If it is not your first, you can click on the “Actions” button on the top-right corner of the screen and select “Configure a new SMTP server”.

Once clicked, you will be presented with a form to fill up all of your SMTP server data:

  • Display Name – The name you want to give this channel.
  • Server Address – The address of the SMTP server.
  • User name – The username login credential.
  • Password – The password login credential.
  • Port Number – The port number dedicated to this communication.
  • Encryption Type – The encryption type used (like TLS).

Once that is completed, you will be redirected back to your SMTP channel page with a channel set up and ready to be used.

Creating a Notification

To create a notification, enter the notification category you wish to create notifications for, click the “Manage Notifications” button on the top-right corner of the screen and select “Create Notification” button.

The notifications are segmented to sections and sub-sections, organized in the following order:

Once all selections have been made, the notification will show in the list and you will be able to Enable/Disable, Preview, Edit, and Delete it on will.

Configuring a Notification

Every notification type has a different configuration display. As most of them are self explanatory, we will not dive deeper into them and focus on Email Notifications here. To configure your email notification, click on the action button on the right side of the item and select “Edit” from the dropdown menu. Doing this will take you to the email template page where you will be able to configure the following:

  • From – By default, Rebillia will use the email address of the connection, but if a different address or name is needed, you can edit this field and enter the desired data.

    Note! – You can not use any email address you want here. The email address you use here must be connected to the channel you have set up, as Rebillia requires permissions to be able to send emails. For example, if you connected a Gmail account that has multiple aliases, you can use any alias you want, as it is all under the same Gmail account, BUT – you can not use any other Gmail account, even if it is under the same Gmail company account.

  • Subject – Rebillia has subject lines created by default for each template. This section allows you to customize the subject line and/or generate a preview text.
  • Content – The content of the email is based on a drag and drop interface that allows you to visually manage your email templates. Each of Rebillia’s notifications comes with a pre-created general template – feel free to edit the template to your specific needs.

Alongside the verbal content of a template, Rebillia also provides variables to load live data at the moment the email is sent. Below is a list of all variables available to be used in notifications:
