Hello,

 

Is there any way for an embedded app to trigger a home notification that will show up on the merchant's admin home page at:

 

exampleshop.myshopify.com/admin

 

(as opposed to a card on the home page of the app: exampleshop.myshopify.com/admin/apps/my-test-app)

 

I saw this Polaris page so figured it might be possible, after some digging on the Github repo I couldn't find anything on it though:

Hi @pop3,

 

We don't currently have any app extensions to display content on the admin's home page in a card. I can see the value in that, but I can also see some issues that could arise with that (abuse, for example). It's a good feature request, and one I'm happy to take.

 

In the meantime, check out our areas of extension that exist today here: https://help.shopify.com/en/api/embedded-apps/app-extensions.

 

Cheers
