Magnet Message provides an easy way for developers to mute and unmute push notifications for mobile devices on a user's subscribed channels. When a channel is muted, an offline user will not receive push notifications as they normally would. This can be really useful when designing an app with a great user experience in mind. For example, perhaps a user may not want to receive notifications while they are at work or while they are sleeping. With Magnet Message you can add time-based mute and unmute functionality to your app on a per channel basis.
To mute a channel simply call the
muteUntil method on the target channel.
Additionally a date can be specified to mute a channel for a specific duration. If no date is specified, the channel will be muted in perpetuity.
Similarly, to unmute a channel simply call
unmute on the target channel.
Each instance of Max.Channel contains attributes to identify a channel's "mute" status.
