One of the great features of a mobile wallet is that the stored Passes can be updated after they are installed. Additionally, when the Pass is updated the brand can notify the user of the update in a format similar to a Push Notification. When we update a Pass the wallet compares the existing data to the new data and if something has changed it will show a message to inform the user of this change. If you want to provide a custom message regarding the change you can add customized text to the updated Pass.
Skycore has the capability to define the icon and what this notification text says to the end user. We call these ‘Push Update Notifications” because they are update notifications that display similar to Push Notifications. Previously, when a pass was updated with Skycore’s API, the device would prompt the user of the update; however, the brand could not define exactly what was said in the update notification. Now, brands can write their own informational messages about the update and it will be displayed as a push notification based on the wallet settings.
