How do I delete the notification that someone sent me/shared a file from the desktop program?
Thanks for the reply. I have files that were shared three years ago that are still there. It would be nice if I were able to remove that to clean it up. Oh well. Thanks again.
How could it be that Dropbox wouldn't allow for something as basic as deleting notifications? I, too, have obsolete notifications I'd like to clear away so those that remain are relevant/needed and I don't have to wade through graveyards of dinosaurs to find the ones I want easy access to? Seems uncharacteristically archaic and primitive.
I agree. How bizzare and annoying that there's no way to delete notifications. I had to mark it as spam and not interesting to get it to go away.
Thank you for this feedback, I can make sure that this will be passed along to the team as a feature request!
Please bear in mind that you can also disable push notifications on your device, so that you choose which ones you will be receiving.
Hope this helps, please let me know if you need more clarifications about it, it'll be a pleasure to follow-up.
OK - this is months later - where is the 'delete notification' ? Coming soon?
Hey, guys, there is competition out there that knows how to do this already.
2 years later and this [profanity removed by moderation] still persists. I'm not impressed by the quality of Dropbox product managers.
I have the same problem in that I can't delete notifications in Dropbox. It's truly absurd that this problem exists.
I have been a Dropbox user for years. I have programmed in many languages and on many computer systems since 1968. In 1967, I took a course called "Human Factors Engineering", which was when I first learned the word "ergonomics". Ever since, and especially in computer programming, I have been appalled by the incredible lack of "user-friendly" design in so many computer applications. In general, Dropbox does not suffer from this problem — it is the best cloud storage app that I have tried, certainly better than OneDrive and Google Drive.
Thus, I am surprised with the response to the "no-delete" problem. It seems obvious that this is an extremely simple thing to fix, so the "probably not going to get fixed" response is baffling — and makes me suspicious of why the fix is not being made.
So please at least be "transparent" and tell me and others why Dropbox is so perverse in refusing to make such a simple fix???
