Re: Any way to remove outdated shared folder notifications?

Any way to remove outdated shared folder notifications?

Mark L.6

Someone shared a folder with me, I accepted the invitation and got the notification about it. The owner of that folder has removed it, but I can still see the notification that I joined that shared folder, when I click on the Dropbox icon on the menu bar. Same thing with another folder I was invited to, but didn't accept it before the folder got removed.

Create your own shared folder and leave and join it a few times, that should push those off the list.

It would be nice to have a fix for this.

That's pretty darn ridiculous.

Seriously?

This is BS and so is not being able to clear the events list. I'm shopping for another online storage provider.

They are just slack on somethings, no way to clear it as it reads them from a generated log, so it always takes the last ones.

 

the same with events, the cant be cleared as they are a generated log, its created from file history info, so you cant remove them, unless you permenantly delete the file (which means no history so no events) (which is also pretty wack!)

I agree this sucks. Every time I check my notifications, there's the same old one.  My mind has to process this and ignore it each time.  Very annoying.  I also can't believe there is no email notifications when someone adds something to a shared folder.  I have a 1TB subscription but will probably cancel when the year is up.

James K. : its not an email notification its an RSS feed (which is pretty much the same thing)
