Update App Badge Count (iOS only)

This action enables you to display a badge icon with counts over iOS app icons. For example, you could use this action to show unread messages, today's reminders, or upcoming events.

In Android, badges automatically appear on app icons with push notifications. We would like to add this functionality for iOS. However, we are blocked by this issue. Therefore, iOS badge counts need to be configured manually using the action shown below.

Adding Update App Badge Count Action

Follow the steps below to add this action to any widget.

  1. Select the Widget (e.g., Container, Button, etc.) on which you want to add the action. However, you would probably chain this action after something happens in your app.

  2. Select Actions from the Properties panel (the right menu), and click Open. This will open an Action Flow Editor in a new popup window.

  3. Click on the + Add Action.

  4. On the right side, search and select the Update App Badge Count (under Alerts/Notifications) action.

  5. Set the Badget Count Value.
