How do you turn off Dropbox Transfer notifications

Helpful | Level 5

I know Transfer is still beta, but is there a way to turn off notifications for it?  I get an email and a badge on the dropbox menubar icon every time a file is downloaded.

Thanks for the screenshots, @mnc50515!

Although there isn't currently a way to change the notification settings specifically for this feature, I'd be more than happy to pass your comments along to the dev team for review. 

I understand that this may not be the ideal reply you were looking for, but I do hope it helps to some extent. 

In the meantime, let me know if you have any other questions and I'll make sure to get back to you as soon as possible. Cheers!

Any email notifications that can be enabled/disabled can be found on your Notifications page, while any notifications from the Dropbox application can be enabled/disabled through Dropbox Preferences.

Transfer notices do not appear to be listed as an option.

Hi there @mnc50515

Welcome to the Dropbox Community! Let's see what we can find. 

As @Rich mentions, desktop app notifications can be changed from the Notifications section in your Preferences.

To ensure troubleshooting though, could you please send me a screenshot (without any personal info) of what you see on your Dropbox icon so as to have a better visual understanding of this?

Thanks in advance!

I hope dropbox team will add function to disable all notifications , aspesially from email. Now it's a nightmare getiing every hour email that someone download your file.

Been looking for the same function too, would love to use transfer more but the spam (especially getting an email for every download) is holding me back right now.
