Manually Asking For Push Notifications Permission

Sometimes automatically asking the user to subscribe for push notification on page load is too early and can be ineffective. As an alternative, the visitor can be asked to grant the permission to receive push notification after clicking on a link or button by calling a JavaScript function.
