Our new plugins help you improve your user onboarding flow: a Customizable HTML Prompt and a Registration Page.
We have long recommended that you provide a “soft prompt” or “soft opt-in” on your website before asking a user to opt in to web notifications. Until now, however, you needed to implement these elements on your own.
