Can we either delete the notifications altogether, or, failing that, could there be some way to indicate there are unread notifications? The way it is, I can see from the table view that there are notifications, but as they pile up, I pretty much no longer care to know about them. Thx!
Thanks for your feedback. It seems like the core of the problem is that the little comment bubbles are taking up unnecessary space on the table view when you no longer really need to see them. There are a number of potential solutions for this issue (assuming this is, in fact, your issue!). Would you prefer notifications to be able to be deleted (presumably only by someone with the highest editing privileges)? Would you want there to be some sort of global option where you could check/uncheck a box that would hide all comment/notification bubbles on the table view? Would you want there to be a little bubble, but only for unread comments, which would go away after you read it? Something else?
It’s the comment bubbles, yes, but also to minimize clutter on the activity records as well. We’re thinking of using notifications in order to alert one another of a change on a record (specifically, a schedule change). That may ultimately be the “real” problem.
To answer your questions:
Thanks very much.
To be clear, you can turn off revision history entirely:
Record-level revision history is an overview of the changes made to each record over time. You can see the record-level revision history inside each record's activity feed when a record is expanded...
This doesn’t affect comments; those can be deleted individually by the person who posted them.
Can you let me know how to remove the notification for read comments? It is one of the last things you mentioned in your original response to this thread.
We like the little notification bubble, but we’d like it to go away once we see the comment. Right now there’s a little bubble with a number in it and it’s not nearly as helpful
Was there ever a solution to this. The air bubble that notifies you that you have a new comment. Once a comment is read it would be nice to have it go back to zero so the team lead can look to see when new comments come in as opposed to an aggregate number. Is there a way to do that?
Hi Howie, The notification bubble for a comment still remains after the comment has been read and I have not figured out how to reset to zero (and make them go away). As a result, the notification bubbles are just a counterproductive annoyance in an otherwise intuitive, easy-to-use app. Is there a solution you know of?
Any updates on this problem?
I like using comments to put additional information on attachments but it really bugs me when I see those clickable comment icons right next to the primary field.
Is there any way to hide or delete those small notification bubbles?
