Does anyone know how to remove the notification that a folder has been shared with you (shows on the desktop folder app at the top)?
It reads: "Ashley Stewart Shared XXXX with you"
It's driving me crazy! I've downloaded the items but the notification folder won't go away!
PS: So pleased that I have earned my "First Reply Badge" - I will wear it all day .....
No Trinity, I am sorry, they do not appear after you select it. There are no options to delete or hide old notifications. There are no dots or options - period.
Could you be any more vague Jane!? This is still unresolved!
I am hopeful that they will implement a DATE after which to show notifications (and not show ones that are older than the Date). How hard could that be even for a brand new software engineer?
I have enjoyed reading this thread. I am also looking at the DB menu in my iMac menu bar and see 7 years worth of notifications that I cannot dismiss, hide or delete. Such a silly UI issue.
But what I like the most are the responses from the moderator.
It's been years and there doesnt seem to be any way to simply MARK AS READ or DELETE...
As janky as most software is these days nearly all of them have figured out how to do that already.
Best cloud storage system in town, that is for sure, but the interface is useless.
Hey Jon M.16
In turn I really enjoyed reading your comment in this thread that just goes on and on!
There are so many angles to this that are hilarious, I'll just stick with my belly laughter, and wonderment for the user who chided us on the other thread because all these frustrated users don't understand how frustrating we are for developers, who are doing a very difficult job! (see link to the parallel thread provided by me higher up).
Just let me know when the glowing blue dot on my notifications is replaced by a bulk "SELECT/DELETE PERMANENTLY" action.
You are correct.
I guess it's easy to fire off a snarky email and bash developers who live somewhere far away, so cheers to all of you out there who have to balance the customer service goals with the internal desire to tell someone to $(*@$#(* off, I wouldn't be able to do it as gracefully.
It'd be nice to "get there one day" for sure, but after what I just went through with a nearly fatal "iCloud Drive" experiment, those old notifications can sit there forever as long as I can always have access to my files. I take comfort in knowing that when the zombie apocolypse gets here, it will be me, my client archives and my...old notifications...and I am ok with that.
