Windows 10 Action Center Notifications

Post by Christiebunny » Thu Mar 22, 2018 8:31 pm

I keep getting a recurring notification from Vueminder, all it is is the date and time. I'd understand it happening at, say, midnite... but this happens frequently, almost every time a different notification pops up.

Any way to turn that off, without turning off Vueminder's OTHER notifications?

Hi Christiebunny, welcome to the forums. In the Program Options, uncheck the box labeled "Show today's activities in task tray tooltip". If that doesn't fix it, could you send me a screenshot of the notification you're seeing? You can post the screenshot here or email it to support@vueminder.com. Thanks!

That seems to have fixed it, but does that mean I won't get any notifications from events each day?

(I'm including a screenshot just to make clear what I'm talking about.)

Hi Christiebunny, it appears you don't have any events defined. When you create an event, you can configure a reminder to be shown for the event. Please see the page linked below for more details:

I did some testing with a few events. popups and desktop notifications both work fine. Why does that one notification go through the Action Center, but there's no option to send any others there?

Is there a way you could add the option of turning just that 'today is' notification off, and have other notifications go through the action center, instead of popups/desktop notifications? All three notification types would be very useful to have, is it possible to add this in a future release?

Hi Christiebunny, the Action Center is specific to Windows 10, but VueMinder is (currently) also compatible with older versions of Windows going back to XP. I could add an option to show reminders in the Action Center (as an additional reminder type), but this wouldn't work on older versions of Windows. In any case, I'll consider this for a future release.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or suggestions.
