Want to completely turn off badges, desktop notifications, or sounds in Shift on a more permanent basis? 🚫 We've got you covered! Use our quick tips for each below: 👇

 

How to turn off all badges in the dock/taskbar

  1. Go to Options (lower left) > Settings > General > Appearance
  2. Find Show unread messages badge and toggle it off on the right-hand side

After you toggle this setting off, no badges will appear for any of your emails, apps, or Workspaces on the Shift app icon on your dock or taskbar. You'll need to disable badges on an individual account level if you don't want to see any badges in your sidebar.

 

How to turn off all desktop notifications

  1. Go to Options (lower left) > Settings > General > Functionality
  2. Scroll to find Show notifications setting and disable it on the right-hand side

When you disable this setting, you won't get any desktop pop-ups for any new messages or calendar reminders.

 

How to turn off all notification sounds

  1. Go to Options (lower left) > Settings > General > Functionality
  2. Scroll to find Play notification sound setting and disable it on the right-hand side

When you disable this setting, you won't get notification sounds for any new messages or calendar reminders.

This setting does not control individual app notification sounds! If you disable this setting, you may continue to hear notification sounds for new messages in some apps. To avoid this, head into th individual app and toggle your sound preferences accordingly. After that, Shift will honor those preferences.
