How to get rid of confirmation dialogs?

Explorer | Level 4

Hi.

 

How to make Dropbox stop showing these annoying confirmation dialogs? Screen Shot 2018-01-11 at 01.09.42.png

I have noticed the check box in the second dialog, but I have lots of shared folders and surely you don't expect me to do this for each folder? Also, it does not get rid of the delete confirmation dialog

 

Thanks!

I see that you’re using a beta version of our app (42.3.112), so I recommend that you return to our latest stable version, 41.4.80.

A beta version is denoted by a xx.
3.xx, instead of the xx.4.xx. If you are on a beta build, it means that you have opted in to Early Releases in your online account settings. I recommend that you switch this off, and then install our stable build. 

See how it goes with this, and also, let me know if adjusting your Mac’s notification settings has any affect. 

Thanks!

Hey @nikolajvonholck, welcome to our community! 

I’ve just tried to replicate your issue here, but was unable to. I’m using OSX Sierra, with the latest stable version of our app, 40.4.46. What are you running? 
 
Also, take a look in your Mac’s system preferences, in the notification settings, and see what your options are for Dropbox. 

Let me know. 
Thanks!

I was also having this problem on Mac High Sierra. I noticed that I was also running the beta version of Dropbox, I installed the stable version and the notifications seem to have gone away, so this answer was very helpful to me.
