Where Cameo referred to reminder messages in the past, it now says notifications.

Everything works exactly as before. Just the name has changed.

Originally, we used these messages just for manual posting of reminders. But Cameo now uses them for all kinds of messages. For example, Cameo often posts messages when it is doing something in the background that it needs to tell you about.

Nearly all apps and systems refer to their equivalent function as notifications, so we’re going with the flow.

  • The section that displays them is now library → notifications.
  • Email messages sent to cameo now use +notification and similar, rather than +reminder etc. (The old ones are still there for backwards compatibility)
  • The API to post a notification is now sendnotification rather than sendmessage. (We’ve also retained sendmessage for backwards compatibility).
