How do I stop pop up notifications when creating/copying/deleting a task?

Now when I complete a task I get a pop up on the left telling me I completed the task and giving me the option to undo it. How to I turn these pop ups off? It covers my menu for a few seconds while they slowly disappear but are in the way when trying to flip between projects.

Thanks for the feedback @Sarah_Minter and welcome to the Forum :wave:t3:As it stands, it’s not possible to disable these pop-up notifications, however, I can see your point here. I have gone ahead and moved your post to the #productfeedback category to allow you and other Forum members to vote for this feature request. Simply hit the “Vote” button to add yours!

I’m with Sarah on this one… I don’t like these pop ups blocking my menu of projects, make this something that can be toggled off please!

I don’t want notifications (which display in the lower left when new tasks are created, etc) as they get in the way. How to disable?

You can’t,I think. But if that really bothers you, you can do a hack and hide it using custom CSS on the webpage. But you might miss out on important notifications though…

Yep it really bothers me as it has nothing to do with “important notifications.” The short-lived temporary “growl” notifications “confirming” actions I’m already taking just consumes important screen real estate (like covering/hiding lists of projects on lower left sidebar). It’s not necessary at all for my workflow. Important things don’t pop-up and disappear. They stick.

Yes, this is EXTREMELY annoying.

I would like to add that having the growl notification is frustrating when you’re in timeline view planning projects. It covers a most-used area which is awkward. Suggest if you have to keep this feature, move it top right corner. Ideally, Asana provides the option to disable in future. Thanks.

Does no one actually check this forum? All these people have asked for these pop-ups to be removed and no one has answered or reply’d from ASANA. When I originally made the request over a year ago to ASANA support they posted the request here, but I think this is just a place for people to come and talk about it. Not to have ASANA actually fix the issue?

These growl notifications are a hinderance.

I also find them a complete annoyance. Why do I need to be notified about every minute task I perform? I get by perfectly well without a running commentary in every other aspect of my working life!
It’s a particular hindrance when drafting timelines which I frequently update as plans change and different tasks and added/amended. I see no benefit to this distraction!

Any Asana Product folks actually looking at this? My team and I also find this incredibly annoying and a hindrance to moving quickly…

These endless notifications are a pox. Eradicate. Ruins the flow of using your product.

These notifications are horrible. They do not go away and I can’t access the menu! Is there any fix for this?
