Thanks to the new Broadcast module on Botnation, you can send a message to groups of users according to the filters set up. Of course, you can only target people who have used your chatbot and subscribed to your notifications. In addition, you can schedule your notifications and restart them at the desired times and times.

Here are the steps to create a notification:

Step 2 :  Filter 

This is where you will segment your target.

You can use the default variables given by Facebook. You can even go further by creating segments that blend targeting criteria based on data collected through your custom variables and imposing a value.

In the example below, we filter by sending the campaign only to users whose associated variable nb-tat is greater than 2.
