Steps:

  1. enable smart-sync,
  2. make some directory "Online only"
  3. delete any file from it.

For every file I get this warning. I understand, how "Online only" works, can I switch this warning off?

Removing Dropbox Client Alerts on macOS

Level 6

Hi all,

I'm using the latest macOS Dropbox client on a Mac. Everything works well but there are a handful of recurring Dropbox alerts I find extremely annoying.

The worst among the bunch are Online-only-files-related alerts, which I'm plagued by thanks to my Dropbox Pro subscription; they raise their ugly head with every (online-only) file deletion, without an option to turn off any future incarnations of it.

Picture:

The following notification are less annoying since they can be turned off after their initial appearance, yet I've been wondering if there's a way to disable them in advance, before they pop for the first time? This would really streamline the deployment of many Dropbox clients I'm required to do occasionally.

Hey there @bigsky - how are you today?

I moved your post under this thread as your inquiry echoes the OP's query and to keep things neat around our Community. 

I double checked this internally and when it comes to the Smart Sync notifications and the option to disable them, this not possible I'm afraid.

This specific type of notifications is a failsafe in order to save our users from un-necessary deletion/changes and cannot be disabled. 

As for your consequent inquiry, again this is not possible; to disable those notifications beforehand.

At this point, I'd like to thank you for your feedback - I will log this with the team as a feature request.   

I know this isn't what you wanted to hear but I hope it helps to some extent.  Please let me know if you have anything to add or ask; I'll be happy to follow up!
