Send newest news item if no news notification has been sent in previous 72 hours
Closed, InvalidPublic


In order to test notifications at scale, we need to have a notification hit the "trigger" during the beta. To ensure this happens, lets put in a backup mechanism to push a notification, independent of the pageviews.

So, if it has been 72 hours since the user received their last notification, push a notification with the top news item.

Here, "top" is ideally defined as:

  • [Ideal] Highest average pageviews for the articles mentioned
  • [Ok] Newest
  • [Meh] First one on the page (probably is in chron order anyway)

Per a follow-up discussion with @JoeWalsh we have modified the pageview criteria, but after the beta do not beleive we should use a purely time based trigger to push a notification for news items.

This time based trigger should have been removed in the final beta, and I am closing this as invalid.
