Push Notifications are capable of more behaviors than simply notifying the user in a standard way. You can specify custom sounds and custom icons for your notifications to use when displaying to the user.

Custom Notification Sounds

You will need to create a sound for your notification and save it in MP3 format. Remember not to make the sound too long. Then follow the instructions for your platform:

iOS

  1. 1.
    Add the mp3 of the sound to the Xcode project at the root level.
  2. 2.
    Modify the Custom Sound attribute in the "iOS Settings" of the Zaius
    Campaign using the full name of the sound (e.g. bell.mp3).

Android

  1. 1.
    Add the mp3 of the sound to the Android project at
    <root>/android/app/src/main/res/raw/bell.mp3
  2. 2.
    Under the Android Options, add a key/value pair with the key of soundName
    and the value of the filename (e.g. bell.mp3)

Custom Icons

On Android, you can specify custom Icons in a manner similar to specifying sounds. Place appropriately sized images into the correct folders under <project>/android/app/src/main/res
Directory
Dimensions
mipmap-mdpi
48x48
mipmap-hdpi
72x72
mipmap-xhdpi
96x96
mipmap-xxhdpi
144x144
mipmap-xxxhdpi
192x192
Then give the Zaius campaign a new field named largeIcon with the name of the image (but without the extension, e.g. icon instead of icon.png).
