Campus App Communications

The CSUSM mobile app allows for direct messaging from campus areas to CSUSM Mobile app users.
Campus messages can be sent through the following methods:

Public Channels

Public channel messages are reserved for campus-wide information and typically are set up by the Office of Communications or App Team individual. 

These messages come in two forms:

  1. In-app ribbon message across the entire app, or only to announcement-specific page areas. (Most common use)
  2. Push notifications to app user phones.

Opt-In Channels

Opt-in channels allow users of the CSUSM Mobile app to opt-in to specific messaging channels and get push notifications when new messages are posted to these channels in the CSUSM Mobile app.

Frequency of Messages

The CSUSM Mobile app aims to inform users of campus happenings and to not annoy users with an overload of messaging. Opt-in Channel messaging is limited to no less than one push notification a month and no more than one push notification a week.

The current frequency of opt-in messaging is under review.
If you are a CSUSM Mobile app user and have feedback on the frequency of Opt-In Channel messages please email your commentary to: it-mobile-app-feedback@csusm.edu.
