Send Push Notification to all users

Currently whether its a push notification from an app or one in a flow you must specify the recipients to send the notification to.


Please create a way to send a push notification to everyone.  

My use case is a power app for:

Our company's news feed.
Everyone that wants to download it can.
We publish updates to a SharePoint list (or I can use a database, whatever will work).

All users get a notification on their phone that new company news is available.

Is there any resolution or suggestions on above

This is such basic functionality for PowerApps, I can't believe that it doesn't work already, please figure out a way to make this possible. 

 

I've tried to set up a flow to trigger when a new item is added, which then initiates a PowerApps push notification, however it's not possible to use the App ID as a recipient, you get a Flow error stating 'InvalidPrincipalIdOrMail'. 

 

This is so frustrating; the Microsoft Mirage continues...

Please add this feature. I am testing as a possible company news feed. Kind of useless without it!

I need to send a notification to the set of users in a team for each time a new report is added in their list.

Just had a thought, but would it work to use Apply to each and add the push notification into that? You could use a list as the data source for the get recipients?

@JenVitug- Nice. Would you be able to share the configuration steps for that? I'm in need of a similar solution and I'm very happy to see that it is a viable workaround. What is the condition used for?

Hi, thanks for engaging.  In fact now that you've mentioned it, i took a second look at my FLOW,  and found that the If Condition is redundant  because the Get LIST of Records Query Filter already retrieved the Individual record that contains email of members of the Group i need to notify.

 

Hence i removed the If Condition and the final Flow is now streamlined :

@JenVitug- Amazing 🙂 Happy to have helped.

 

I tried this using a sharepoint list as the source for recipient list, using a people field with email as the default field value. I then used the SharePoint Get Items action to pull in the recipient email addresses and used the apply to each to send the push notification. Worked like a charm! I did notice however that whilst editing my flow, that the send push notification action has some new control to add multiple recipients; not sure what use that is as they would be hard coded into the flow.

I'm looking for the solution you described above with the sharepoint-list.

Are you willing to share your configuration steps? 

I'm kind of confused about the expression "people field" - what does it mean?
