Dashboard always shows 2 unread notifications

Posted July 10, 2019 896 views

I’m pretty sure I’ve read all of the notifications I have available, but the “bell” icon in the top-right of my DigitalOcean dashboard always shows a red “2” on it, as if I have 2 unread notifications. Is there a way to archive or delete all of the old notifications I’ve read?

Hi & @bobbyiliev,

Oh dear, that’s not great!

When you click on the bell icon, do you have any messages in your notifications that are still highlighted in light blue?
If you do, these are still unread and you’ll need to click on each of them to mark them as read.

If you’re still seeing the unread badge with nothing highlighted, please let me know and we’ll look into this further!

  • I think DO should come up with a function to allow users to select all & delete notifications or to limit the sending frequency. it’s a bit annoying especially the notifications of payment due, your system sends them so frequently.

I thought for sure I had opened them all, but there were indeed 2 items still highlighted in blue. I missed them before because I have multiple pages of items, and the blue is quite faint!
Thanks, @MattIPv4 - consider it a feature request to have some way to archive the ones I’ve read, or make the unread ones more obvious! Cheers
