[Request] Send a specific notfication type to all users

It would be nice to have additional options within the "send a notification" app:
Currently you can choose between "All users" and a specific channel (ie. push message to one user).
If you want to send a push notification to all users, but no email, you have to create an app for every single user.
It would be handy if you could select sending a special notification type only.
for example:
All users - All types
All users - Push
or All users - Mail

Currently the Z-Way Automation engine do not know the type of channel. Every channel provider (like MobileAppSupport, NotificationChannelEmail or just expose the name of the channel and the user. Basically you can create many other notification types like Telegram bot, PushBullet, PushOver...

May be it is worth to create an app that will aggregate several notification channels creating one more "aggregated" channel. When you send a message into, it will send a message to all channels it aggregates. Worth doing? Quite simple to do.

Another option is to allow MobileAppSupport create such aggregated "Push to All Users" channel, but in that case you will not be able to mix multiple different channels compared to the solution above.
