What does the Joomla Plugin do?
It automates the Integration process with a script tag in the <head> section of the website with customized settings from the PushAlert Dashboard.
The integration code is loaded after the website has finished loading, therefore it doesn't have any affect on the performance of the website.
To send a notification, login to the PushAlert Dashboard. From there you can customize the title, message, image you want to send or schedule the notification for later.
