Sending Queued Messages

For sending queued messages to work, you need to ensure that the scheduled event PushQueue is active. For TAP environments, you need to explicitly activate the scheduled event in the Mendix Cloud Portal. For free apps, the scheduled events feature is not supported, so a queued message won’t be sent.
