@Chris: in case you're on macOS you can change the config in macos notification center for mattermost from alert to banner; then the notification will disappear after some seconds...
OMG - "sticky" desktop notifications seem to work again :) at least on macos.
our administration upgraded to mattermost server version 5.14.2 (don't know from which version), and now the notifications stay on screen again when configured in macos notification center as alerts. i'm still using desktop app 4.2.3 (184.108.40.206) on macOS mojave 10.14.6
thanks a lot, mattermost team! :)
meanwhile it's the desktop app 4.2.3 (220.127.116.11)
on macOS mojave 10.14.6
i'm using the desktop app 4.2.1 (18.104.22.168)
on macOS mojave 10.14.5
further details - if needed - you can find in my post from March 7, 2019 8:20 AM. thanks a LOT again for taking into consideration :)claudia supported this idea ·
+1 / i _really really_ consider this feature as useful... in our company we used mattermost 4.3 for two years for evaluation, and i had configured my mattermost macos desktop client together with the banners/alerts config from macos' notification config, so that direct messages would stay on the desktop until i closed them. that worked quite fine.
now our administration has upgraded mattermost from 4.3 to 5.7 (in january), and as the feature had been removed in 5.0 with june 16th, 2018 release my sticky alerts are gone, and it's sad - to describe it nicely: i miss a lot of direct messages or read them way too late... same for some colleagues, too, who also had used the sticky alerts.
so, i support very much the reintegration of configurable desktop notifications duration! thanks a lot for taking into consideration.
