How to Sort Your Push Notifications and Find Winning Campaigns

Looking for a quick and easy way to sort push notifications and find your best performing campaigns?

Sorting your push campaigns by performance metrics helps you understand what works and what doesn’t. More importantly, you can use your best campaigns as a base for new campaigns.

The sorting feature isn’t standard for all push notification services. Even if you get the feature, you might not be able to use it without using their API service. Which means that you’ll need a developer to do it for you.

If you have an in-house developer, that’s fine. But if you don’t, we highly recommend shifting to PushEngage. PushEngage allows you to filter your campaigns in a few simple clicks.

In this article, we’re going to show you step by step how to sort push notifications and find your best campaigns.

Why Would You Want to Filter and Sort Push Notifications?

You can filter and sort push notifications to find the best performing campaigns or even your worst performing campaigns.

The epic thing about these filters is that you can see:

  • Types of push notifications that you send the most
  • How well specific types of notifications perform
  • Identify seasonal trends in campaign performance
  • What kinds of campaigns need to be optimized immediately

And you can do it in a few simple clicks!

You can also sort the push notifications by Latest Created or Oldest Created. This way, you can make it super easy to find specific campaigns even after your filter by a date range.

Does Your Push Notification Service Allow Campaign Sorting?

Not every push notification service allows you to filter and sort push notifications. At least, not directly. Sometimes, you can do it using their API service. But that’s difficult to do if you don’t have an in-house developer.

A good way to verify is by simply asking your service provider if they have a cleanup option. But chances are that they won’t have one with accessible options.

We recommend that you switch to PushEngage right away.
