Disable notifications on icon in menubar (OSX)

Disable notifications on icon in menubar (OSX)

Hi there, is there any way to disable the notifications that sit as a tiny red number on the icon on the menubar? I've included a photo of one just to be specific.

Hi there @MichaelHI; how are you today?

 

At this point, you'll need to mark them as read to dismiss them from the app's icon. 

 

From there, you can choose which notifications you'll be getting through the app's preferences or even turn them of for a limited set of time. 

 

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any more questions, Michael.

Hey Walter!

 

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer! Super appreciated. So, there's no way to entirely disable to these notifications or manually turn off all of the conditions that might trigger them?

 

Best,

Michael

I'm afraid no, Michael, there's no way to completely disable the notifications via the desktop app. 

 

The closest thing would be to uncheck all the options you get in your notifications tab in the app's preferences. 

 

That said, if you'd like a change on this feature, you can post your idea in the relevant section of our Community so other users can upvote it too. 

 

Feel free to give me a nudge here if you have any more questions!
