Automate Future Notifications and Reminders with Laravel Snooze image

Laravel Snooze is a package by Thomas Kane, which simplifies automating future notifications and reminders in Laravel.

The package’s readme has some typical use-cases for this package:

  • Reminder system (1 week before appt, 1 day before, 1 hour before, etc)
  • Follow-up surveys (2 days after purchase)
  • On-boarding Email Drips (Welcome email after sign-up, additional tips after 3 days, upsell offer after 7 days)
  • Short-Term Recurring reports (send every week for the next 4 weeks)

Snooze provides a trait for your models called SnoozeNotifiable that adds a notifyAt() method:

use Thomasjohnkane\Snooze\Traits\SnoozeNotifiable;
 
class User extends Model {
use SnoozeNotifiable;
 
// …
}
 
// Schedule a birthday notification
$user->notifyAt(new BirthdayNotification, Carbon::parse($user->birthday));
 
// Schedule for a week from now
$user->notifyAt(new NextWeekNotification, Carbon::now()->addDays(7));
 
// Schedule for new years eve
$user->notifyAt(new NewYearNotification, Carbon::parse('last day of this year'));

You can even send anonymous notifications using the ScheduledNotification::create() method:

$target = (new AnonymousNotifiable)
->route('mail', 'hello@example.com')
->route('sms', '56546456566');
 
ScheduledNotification::create(
$target, // Target
new ScheduledNotificationExample($order), // Notification
Carbon::now()->addDay() // Send At
);

If you have some logic that should stop the notification from sending, you can define logic in the notification class:

public function shouldinterrupt($notifiable) {
return $this->invoice->is_paid;
}

For more detailed info, check out Thomas Kane’s detailed article Scheduling Laravel notifications using Snooze.

The options and code API for this package provide a delightful experience for sending notifications in the future, so be sure to read through all the documentation.
