Smeal to utilize push notifications on Penn State Go app

Smeal has a new tool in its efforts to communicate with the college community — push notifications on the Penn State Go app. Messages can be sent to community members who have downloaded the app and enabled push notifications. Recipients can be targeted by relationship to Smeal, including staff, faculty, student, department, major or class standings. Appropriate use cases include: Business Building issues that affect academic and research operations; academic advising alerts; and registration and/or start times for signature, college-wide special events (eg. Career Fairs, Executive Insights). To request a push notification, submit an online request form. You will be notified if your request has been approved or denied, or if additional information is needed.
