How do I delete the notification that someone sent me/shared a file from the desktop program?
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.

you cannot delete the notifications as they are a permanent record. What you Can do is to request a feature (such as) to only show notifications Since <date>. How hard can that be? The more people who request it, the more likely it is to get done.
I've got a dozen or so annoying notifications from 6 years ago in the Notifications tab of both Mac OS and Windows OS Dropbox apps. There are no other notifications, even though I have lots of ac tivity. How do I clear this junk?
Seriously, you think that this is a feature request and not a defect?
