Notifications and the notification list

Wat is een melding?

If an application or a system component wants to get your attention, a notification will be shown at the top of the screen, or on your lock screen.

For example, if you get a new chat message or a new email, you will get a notification informing you. Chat notifications are given special treatment, and are represented by the individual contacts who sent you the chat messages.

Andere meldingen hebben knoppen om uit verschillende opties te kiezen. Om zo een melding te sluiten zonder een optie te kiezen klikt u op de sluitknop.

Clicking the close button on some notifications dismisses them. Others, like Rhythmbox or your chat application, will stay hidden in the notification list.

The notification list

The notification list gives you a way to get back to your notifications when it is convenient for you. It appears when you click on the clock, or press Super+V. The notification list contains all the notifications that you have not acted upon or that permanently reside in it.

You can view a notification by clicking on it in the list. You can close the notification list by pressing Super+V again or Esc.

Click the Clear List button to empty the list of notifications.

Notificaties verbergen

If you are working on something and do not want to be bothered, you can switch off notifications.

You can hide all notifications by opening the notification list and switching Do Not Disturb to on at the bottom. Alternatively:

  1. Open the Activities overview and start typing Settings.

  2. Click on Settings.

  3. Click on Notifications in the sidebar to open the panel.

  4. Switch Do Not Disturb to off.

When switched off, most notifications will not pop up at the top of the screen. Notifications will still be available in the notification list when you display it (by clicking on the clock, or by pressing Super+V), and they will start popping up again when you switch the switch back to on.

U kunt ook meldingen voor individuele toepassingen uit- of weer inschakelen vanuit het Meldingen-paneel.

Hiding lock screen notifications

When your screen is locked, notifications appear on the lock screen. You can configure the lock screen to hide these notifications for privacy reasons.

To switch off notifications when your screen is locked:

  1. Open the Activities overview and start typing Settings.

  2. Click on Settings.

  3. Click on Notifications in the sidebar to open the panel.

  4. Switch Lock Screen Notifications to off.
