SmartAlerts are a powerful feature and a great way for users to subscribe to content they love, as well as a unique mechanism for you to MicroTarget users either via our App Intelligence Dashboard or via our Management API.

  • Our system will still send the SmartAlert batch even if there are bad tokens. It will display errors related to token issues, for instance if there are device tokens missing. Here is a screenshot:
