Push Notifications

Overview

The Push Notifications add-on integrates the Pusher service with your CS-Cart store, enabling you to alert administrators about valuable information in real time, such as a new order placement or a new review submitted.

A push notification will pop up in the top right corner and stay there until the administrator closes it or goes to another page in the admin panel.

Another useful feature of the add-on is that it shows you which of your administrators are currently viewing this or that page in the admin panel.

Clicking on the particular administrator will open its detailed page.

Thus, you will see the number of administrators on the following pages:

  • product editing page
  • order details page
  • user details page
  • category editing page
