When you need a quick and easy way to notify your users about things happening in your app at a later point you can use local notifications which look like a push notification (more on the difference later) and can be implemented with just a few lines.

In this Quick Win we will implement the local notification plugin and schedule a notification for a later point, send additional data and subscribe to events in order to receive our payload data.
