To limit the number of notifications in Laravel, you can use the ->batching() method in your notification classes. This method allows you to group multiple notifications into a single batch, which can help reduce the number of individual notifications being sent.


Here's an example of how you can limit the number of notifications by batching them:

  1. Create a new notification class or open an existing one.
  2. Add the batching() method to the class and specify the maximum number of notifications to include in each batch.

use IlluminateNotificationsNotification;

class MyNotification extends Notification
{
    public function via($notifiable)
    {
        return ['mail'];
    }

    public function toMail($notifiable)
    {
        // Notification content
    }

    public function batching()
    {
        return 10; // Limit the number of notifications to 10 per batch
    }
}


  1. Update your code to dispatch the notifications using the Notification::send() method with a collection of notifiable entities. Laravel will automatically batch the notifications based on the limit specified in the batching() method.

use AppNotificationsMyNotification;

$users = User::all();

Notification::send($users, new MyNotification());


By limiting the number of notifications per batch, you can control the frequency and volume of notifications being sent out in your Laravel application. This can help prevent overwhelming users with a large number of notifications and improve the overall user experience.
