Email notification always displays twice

I have rich notifications set to show for 15 sec. However it always displays that on message arrival and then again a few minutes later. Is there a way to limit to just once? Thanks


  • I'm assuming you are seeing the return from idle notification, this might happen if you were idle while the notification initially came in (ie. watching a video or reading without mouse movements)

    This is done in presuming you might have missed the initial one.

    let me know if this is not the scenario.

  • I think it is but keep in mind I'm actively using my pc/chromebook with other apps/web so it would be nice to just have it show once

  • ok i've queued this for development to add an option to disable this.

  • much thanks...rough idea when avail?

  • at approximately every 2 month intervals I pushed a batch of features and fixes for each extension on their own cycle

  • wondered if you had time to address this yet? thanks.

    I haven't, I had a big redo of the code in the last update that took a lot of time.

    But it's still in the queue.

  • Good news in v23.1 there's an option to disable the return from idle notification.

  • sweet, i'll try turning off and see hot the boat rides - big thanks for letting me know

  • so far so good - thanks

    dumb ?, are settings synced across devices for:

    Checker for Gmail?

    Checker for Cal?

    Checker for Drive?


  • Great, as for syncing no there are no shared settings between these different extensions of mine. Only a monthly contributed status for the extra feature is shared amongst them.

  • I meant for each one individually

  • Oh sorry so yes for the Gmail and calendar extensions, but it's not perfect, you can also refer to the extension options .. admin .. load / save buttons.

  • Reason I asked is I noticed on Chrome book, after configuring the setting above on PC, it was not the same as PC

    So do you mean one has to Admin->"save" after making changes to manually sync to other devices?

    Be cool if was autosync. I sync everything on most of my devices per Googles sync setup

  • So if you are signed into the same account upon installation of the extension - it does try to sync up, but it's not 100% reliable.

  • Got it but does the "save" button force a sync too?

    No, it just saves it to your sync storage tied to your google account - then you can load afterwards from an extension on another machine tied to your google account.

  • got it so two steps to sync all settings
