I have now left the project as my dashboard is constantly swamped with updates. I have tried repeatedly to say “no” to updates and it continually reverts to giving me updates. I have now had to leave the project and I am STILL getting updates swamping my dashboard. I don’t have this issue with any other project I am a member of.

Can you please include screenshots of the updates you are referring to?

Collection projects like the one in your screenshot do not create notifications (upper right red “conversation bubble”) and the only dashboard/homepage updates are journal posts and changes to the project. There are only two journal posts on that project. Changes to the project would include whether the project admin/managers changed or if the project admin turned on “Trust”, which doesn’t seem to be the case here.

Examples of the type of screenshots that would be helpful, if they indicate updates from this project:
Upper right notifications:


I would also be interested to see if you are “subscribing” to anything that might account for the issue you are experiencing

e.g. under Projects
Places, or

(You can embed screenshots directly here on the forum, no need to upload elsewhere)

Hi @major_bombylius, I can’t see evidence of a bug here, but if you can provide screenshots of project notifications or dashboard updates for a project you left/unsubscribed from, please do open up a new report. Thanks!
