Snoozing notifications doesn't work

Helpful | Level 5

Turning off notifications doesn't help. I'm still getting lots of notifications. They even have the "z" symbol on them (indicating that notifications are off).

My guess is that the notifications were queued before I snoozed notifications. The notifications kept coming for a few minutes, disturbing my work.

Hi @mfalkvidd

Thanks for reporting and for the screenshot. 

If your notifications don't go to sleep, a Beta version of the Dropbox desktop app might be keeping them up. 😄 

Beta's sometimes are rude and don't respond to your settings, as they are still under testing. Reverting to the latest stable would help 89.4.278.

Have you tried clicking the wrench icon? If so, does it give you the option to block the notifications once more from there? Let me know if that helps. 

Thank you!

Thanks for your reply.

I am not running a beta, never have.

Yes, the Windows feature to permanently block Dropbox notification still works.

That's great. Glad we have a workaround to stop the pop ups. 

However, if you want to further troubleshoot on your Dropbox desktop app, the next step I would suggest is a reinstall.
