PushNotification for app to every user

I'm not finding anything on this.

I have a News Feed App that is based on a SharePoint list and I want a notification to go out to every single user every time a new item is added to the SharePoint list.


Now whether its another PowerApp or a Flow I see no option for the PushNotification to not specify "recipients".  

With a company of over 2000 people, and constantly changing, we cannot be constantly updating the "recipients" parameter on the push notification.  

So how do we get a push notification to go out for a powerapp that is for anyone who downloaded it?  Without specifying a "recipient" list.

 

This seems like a basic day 1 type of functionality.

Hi TennisFreak,

 

I assume that you have seen this doc about PowerApps Push notifications. I am afraid that currently we are not able to send push notifications without specifying “recipients” via PowerApps.

Please consider to submit a request at PowerApps Ideas Forum about this issue.

If all the users have downloaded Microsoft Flow app, you could consider to use Microsoft Flow to send push notification. According to your scenario, you want to send a push notification whenever a new item is created in SharePoint list. Please try to create a flow “SharePoint – When a new item is created>Send Push notification” to see if this will meet your needs.

Besides, you also need to share the flow with all of the users so that the flow would work as expected.

Re: PushNotification for app to every user

 

I need to send a push notification out to all powerapp users, NOT FLOW USERS.

 

I dont want 2000+ users downloading the Flow app, not to mention I have Windows Phone users and the Flow app isnt available on that platform.

 

On the recipients list field why can we not use a distribution group?????

 

The most basic necessities and irritating restrictions make Microsofts services unusable.


You want businesses and corporations to use this stuff but dont provide the capabilties for the apps to be used in those environments.
