System notification overview
The CommsEase built-in system notifications are categorized into pre-defined built-in system notifications and custom system notifications.
Built-in system notifications
Built-in system notifications delivered by the CommsEase server to users or groups are used for system events. Built-in system notifications are received and stored in the SDK with simple unread count implementation.
The built-in system notification are sent for events in advanced groups, such as join requests and invitations. For specific types of events, see [
NIMSysMsgType](https://doc.yunxin.163.com/docs /interface/Windows side of instant messaging/NIMSDKAPI_CPP/html/nim__sysmsg__def_8h.html#aca66cca1d454dc8938338ebd5ec08561). If your app also allows CommsEase to manage friend relationships, notifications for adding and deleting belongs to type.
Built-in system notifications are displayed in the list of verification messages. For example: XX sent a friend request.
Built-in system notifications and notification messages
Notification messages are in-session messages (
kNIMMessageTypeNotification ). The notification messages can be received when a user is online or offline or synchronized when a user logs in on a new device. Notification messages are used for events in advanced groups, supergroups, and chat rooms. For more information, see
NIMNotificationId. Notification messages are not counted as unread. Push service and notification bar alerts are not supported. Notification messages are located in the middle of the chat interface. For example: group name update, XX ledt the group chat.
Custom system notifications
Custom system notification can be delivered from clients or the app server. The SDK only transparently transmits custom system notifications, and does not parse and store them. The content of a notification can be customized.
You can send custom notifications for some events based on your business logic to implement various types of business scenarios. For example, the "typing" indicator of a user in a one-on-one chat.
Built-in system notifications and custom system notifications
Custom system notifications are
in-session messages (
kNIMMessageTypeCustom) that allows you to customize messages when a user is online or offline with alerts or synchronized when a user logs in on a new device. Custom messages are the same as text and voice messages, and are located on the left and right sides of the chat interface. For example, guessing games, stickers, and disappearing messages are implemented with custom messages.
