                        • Notification bar on Vivo Nex behaves as I would suspect it should if the phone had a nodge. But this phone does not.

                          if there are more than one notifications the bar displays ...
                          that would be great for a nodged phone.
                          but this aint one.

                          • Notifications Badges are not updated even after checking the apps.

                            Notification badges don't update even after opening up app and clearing the alert within the app it still shows in MSLauncher

                            • I was writing some email in Outlook app, and now Launcher sends notification "You said to..." every 2-5 minutes and I can't "complete" it.

                              Hi! I was writing email to some partners using the Outlook mobile app. Then I arrived at office and decided to finish it on Desktop using default Mail App on Windows 10. After short chat via email with my partners, I've closed Mail App and turned off laptop. Shortly after I started to get notifications from Launcher (not the Outlook) with title "You said to...(name of my partners). It's sent to me every 2-5 minutes and has 2 buttons:
                              1) Complete button which shows a toast message that something went wrong and I should try later (tried like 50 times,…

                                    I will receive 1 or 2 dings from messenger after restarting my phone. I get really faint dings with BT ear buds but not wired ones. I really like the way im able to set up the screens and everything. I find it more appealing than standard android 6.0. but I need my notifications

                                    • Badge notification number not going away

                                      Even after I have cleared all new messages for the messages app, I still have a icon that says I have one new message. Even since I switched to a new phone the count is still there. Opening the app gets rid of it but then it'll come back after a few minutes.
