How to use ‘User List targeting’ in Connecto

What it does:

Lets you target a notification to a uploaded list of users. These users have to be registered users with a unique id that is sent to Connecto as a custom variable.

How to set up:

1. Once you ensure the unique user id is being sent to Connecto as custom variable, put all alphanumeric user ids in a text file as adjacent comma separated values without space.

2. Go to Settings tab in Admin -> user list and upload the txt file containing the user ids

3. When creating notifications, go to targeting -> segmentation -> custom variables and asssign key as user id custom variable for Connecto, comparison condition as ‘is in uploaded list’ and in value -> select the name of the list of user ids to target. Save after all changes have been made. That’s it
