Karsten Dollak shared this idea 7 months ago

I don't need any Developer-Notifications, and i don't want to delete all Messages everytime, to hide the Notificationcenter-Button at the home-screen. So, how can i hide the Button finally?


Thanks in advanced

Good day Karsten,

this center is multi-purpose system. Once per week there is visible notification on new information blog post on our homepage. All other notifications are Locus Map based ... imports, exports, downloadings.


Currently there is no other option how to hide it, then by removing content. We are anyway thinking about some alternative, for some people less obtrusive, solution. Thanks for understanding.

You could do it like this: If you do not have time to read, you can keep it with long on the circle with your finger, hide. The next time it appears, it will reappear.

In addition, one could list the information in the main menu under Information.

Yes the button is annoying, then please make it configurable what is notified about, I hate that "propaganda" every two days or so.

Sorry otherwise I love Locus, its the best!

Please let user disable it.

Unbelievable power of Locus community :).

So alternative solution:


  • "notification center" in main menu right below "web services" with number of existing messages
  • "notification center" icon on main screen like now
  • but NEW with option "Unimportant messages also on map screen" > on/off. When *disabled*, only important actions ( download of items over locus-actions, from Store, in future download of online maps ) with be counted and cause appear of this notification button on main screen. Information from out blog don't.

Is it ok? Just tap "heart" icon here in right corner of my message to confirmation. Thanks

YESSSSSS EXACTLY. This is the solution I thought of! Great! Go for it.

And its not only power of the community, it is your responsivness, you (re)act on our ideas.

Thats another reason for Locus being the best!

Cheers

TB

PS: don't see any heart here on my mobile opera browser...

Perfect, thanks. Cannot heart the solution either on my mobile Chrome.

My previous ticket regarding this: http://help.locusmap.eu/ticket/9242


So what's the right place to discuss this? Help desk or ticket?

Yes, good, main thing is, I consider, that these adds are gone, see attached file. Double annoying to must tap things if they are just adds.

No, off is switched off and not just half off!

Well franc, it's just playing with words. From my point of view, this has nothing to do with ads. We are just trying to bring interesting content to users and if there are not ideas on some "how to" post, we share interesting travel inspirations form other users. What you see is just notification on new post on our main web here: http://www.locusmap.eu/news/ . It just once (max twice) per week, two taps to remove it.

Anyway as I wrote before, in next version it will be possible to hide "info button" on map screen, when only these "ads" will be inside notification center.


EDIT: @Till Reymann: ticket in your link is on the same page. Difference is that "tickets" are private so it's only communication between someone from Asamm team and You. "Posts" are public, like this. Usually some special problems are better to solve privately, some common errors and problem with public post, because more people may involve. Thanks for understanding

OK, now I opend the link which I ment was adds. Indeed you right, it is not publicity :)

It looked so strong about it and I never open such links when I think it is pubs.


But anyway, you let us disable these and I think good is.

seems to be appropiate, thank you.

simple thoughts though

- does the user need this information

- does the user need this information while in a certain action, does it help or may even disturb (even furthermore provoke unwanted situations should be less the case or of less propability, but should be considered)

- does the user need a classified information while in a certain action

- other settings or respected environments.. (mobile, wlan, granulitic classification/settings by user, ..)

No symbol on the card please - ensure there is the sidebar. Where are the

setting buttons and the Facebook link. Where the locus store is already

linked. There you can see also.

I'm sure it works. Just remove existing already loaded blog posts from Notification center. This should help.

How do I disable these notifications? I do not see option in menu>settings>misc. Also, the latest notification (a survey) seems to be stuck on my screen. I took the survey but cannot get rid of the notice. Please advise. Thanks!

Thanks ballooni55. How do I get rid of the notification for the survey? It's covering up part of my map screen.

balloni55, thanks again for your reply. I am not trying to take the survey however as I've already taken it. I am trying to remove the notification symbol that's on the upper left of my screen. Can't get it to go away.

the message should be somewhere a trash can be. To delete the messages. Then everything goes away.

There is no trash can and no way to move the notice symbol. Any suggestions?

Just pulled the screen up again and the notification symbol is gone! Maybe it has a time limit? Thanks for the suggestions!

If you've read notification, just swipe them. Ref: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:notification_center

After clearing all messages, it is instantly gone. The Sceenshot we had from the open used. There must be a trash can at the bottom right. Or delete messages by wiping to the right.

Thanks everyone for your help and suggestions. The message is gone now although I'm not sure how or why. Swiping did not work to remove the message or the icon and I had no trash can like other notifications had. Maybe one of my swipes had a delayed reaction. Anyway, it's gone now, thank heavens.
