In-App Notification Builder

This XrmToolBox tool allows you to design your in-app notifications with live preview and generate the C#/JS code or parameters for Notification creation using Power Automate (developed by Ivan Ficko).

The in-app notification feature is currently still in preview and AllowNotificationsEarlyAccess app setting needs to be enabled (with JavaScript or a cloud flow). Even though the properties of the notification are documented in Microsoft Docs, styling the notification details with Markdown and adding action can be a bit daunting for citizen-developers who are not familiar with JSON.
To build in-app notifications with GUI, you can use this tool to click and choose the options available and set the properties of the notification, style the details and add the actions easily.
