Disable notification about specific folder or App

Disable notification about specific folder or App

Hi, 


I am using Joplin for notes, and dropbox to save my notes. I get a notification on my Linux machine every time a temp file is added and removed. Which is a lot. I don't want to disable notification for all the activity in Dropbox, but want to disable it for one folder.

 

Is that possible?

No, it's not.

Hi,

 

I finally found a potential fix (an acceptable solution) that worked for me.

I made my machine's dropbox to not sync the contents of the Joplin folder, so I am now no longer seeing any notifications on any updates or changes happening in it. 

Agreed this is not filtering notifications, but the app still works even if I don't sync the app folder into my local dropbox folder. 

Who's talking
