Conclusion

Once an event is published, you get instant updates in real-time, and you could optionally turn on or off push notifications depending on the priority of your event.

Also, LogSnag makes it very easy to organize your events into different projects and channels depending on their topic and provides you with a global and project-wide feed so you can scroll through your events.

In addition, with our collaborative features, you can add team members to a project so that everyone can receive push notifications and updates, regardless of the desktop or mobile platform they are using.
