Double Notification Settings

I'm still seeing this as an issue in my Notifications Preferences Pane. Has a resolution been produced by Dropbox?

Hey @jcwestberry, welcome to our Community and happy Monday!

What you noticed is actually considered to be expected behavior in the latest versions of the Dropbox desktop application. It allows you to have settings for two different type of notification styles for Dropbox. 
 
You can allow Alerts, which are persistent notifications for critical updates from the Dropbox desktop app, and Banners, which are quick notifications about updates to Dropbox files etc.
 
I hope this helps!

Thanks Walter. Still doesn't correct the issue though.

 

As Duhkha outlines below...

There is no way to determine which type of notification will be assigned to which behavior or alert. How do we know the difference between the two notification types?

 

Thanks,
