How can I prevent dissapearance of some notifications when I click the icon on top right multiple times?

Hi, I have been not very active in Inaturalist for some time due to busy schedule, and right now there are 420 notifications I need to go through (Excluding confirming IDs, which would have been thousands!).
I would like to check them all but I am scared to click it, because previously many notifications dissapeared when I clicked it second time after checking though first portions of it. Although I know I can access to them from the dashboard, I have been following quite a lot of people and it is extremely time consuming to find important notifications from thousands of their observations. I would like to know if there are any settings or other solutions to this.

You could view your notifications in the app rather than on the website–they don’t disappear in the app. However it will only display a max of 200 notifications, so I’m not sure what you can do for the rest. I believe other people on the forum have discussed this, if you want to do a topic search.

Sometimes I use the Android app to go through the bulk of my notifications to avoid that issue. But >400 is a lot! You might like to try this tool created by @pisum:


I rarely use app but will have a try. Thank you.

Wow, this makes Inat life much easier. Thank you!
