Dismissing notifications?

I am (very happily) using NC (currently 17.02) on our local server (deployed via docker) but one thing that annoys me is that for all contacts that have a birthday set in NC, there is a local notification from the desktop client. So far so good, however, there is no way from the desktop to dismiss these notifications, so they re-appear every ~30 minutes until I log into NC and dismiss them manually there.

Is there some way to dismiss them via the desktop app? I like to be notified of birthdays but not 17 times in a row for birthdays that are weeks old…

Hello @Cantello,

welcome to the Nextcloud community.

Personally I have never seen such notifcation.
Would you mind sharing a screenshot of the desktop notification?
Which notification apps do you have enabled server side?

This is an example of a notification, which will now pop up every ~30-60 minutes.


Actually, I just have found a possibility to dismiss them by just deleting the event from the app. Somehow I did not see that option there before… :dizzy_face:

How did you delete the event? Changing code? Which client version is it? Latest v2.6.2 from hallows eve?

As simple as going into the client app and deleting the notification via the X. In retrospective, I cannot think of why I did not see the option there…

Never had such notifications …

Would be nice you would share your settings.

I have enabled these apps but did not enable any special notification.

This affects all calendar events/alarms.

I have the same issue if someome assigns me a Deck Task, even if I dismiss that in the browser and notification panel. the Client always let the notification reappear.
