    So I have a question about the mobile push notifications. If I have a set rule for text channels on my desktop if I enable push notifications does it bypass the Android apps rules for notifications. I currently get all messages in a channel notified on my phone when I have @mention only and it is a bit annoying.

    I always go to my discord, see little 1's in boxes meaning there was a notification, and then look at the thousands of messages and think "nope."

    Can we have the @mentions appear somewhere separate? If someone mentions me and says something, I kinda wanna see it, but I have no fast way of going through and finding it.

    I want an option to only see a flashing notification on my phone....I dont want to hear a tone or a vibrate. It states on my phone app I go to the notifications tab under user settings to adjust the "new message sound." It says, "custom sounds are currently disabled on mobile" but I dont see the option on the website either...

    @Rainmaker we're still working on more notification options for mobile. Sorry about that!

    @Cilantrelle I've got my notifications set to "all messages" for every channel and the server however I'm still only receiving notifications when someone DMs me or uses an @mentions. If someone on the channel wants to tell me about what their dog ate this morning or I'll never speak to them again, either way I want to know about it. Please help! I've got mobile push notifications active on both the desktop and mobile apps, not sure if that makes a difference.

    Why does it keep saying I have a message when I honestly do not, it usually tells me where I have the message by whitening the message area, but none of them are whited up, and I dont know how to just tell DIscord to say I read all my messages.

    I use the internet ap, and the tab onmy browser for Discord shows a little red boogin when one of my discord channels has new messages that goes away when I get all caught-up.

    Only, it used to.. now the little red boogin is just there and it's staying there and I don't know how to dismiss it. What's going on?

    @Fluffyroxas turns out we had a bug on our end with unread notifications. We'll have a fix for it up and running soon!

    @Molly We had a bug regarding the red notification indicator this week. We should have a fix up for it soon!

    Would it be possible to have a setting to play notification sounds without the taskbar flash? One of the reasons I bailed on Skype was due to their ignoring the fact that some of us still use auto-hide taskbar and having it pop-up every few seconds doesn't promote sanity.

    @Aetas If you turn off "enable desktop notifications" in your user settings > notifications settings, does that help?

    I can @mention people even if they are not currently logged into the server when I'm using the app from a desktop but when I use it from my phone it will only @mention people that are currently showing online. Is there a way to fix that?

    @Kevlarproof that in particular is a bug on our end we're still fixing up. Sorry about that!

    So after butting my head against the mobile app for a while and getting nowhere, only to go to sleep and wake up to a dozen loud notifications at once this morning, I realized that I don't get notifications on my mobile app AT ALL if I've been active on the browser or desktop app. Not from direct @mentions, not from @everyone, not from DMs...

    I really don't like this. I don't have an extra monitor, so I use the phone app to get my attention when I'm playing games. The desktop notifications have never worked properly on my machine and even if they did, I don't want a popup to interfere with my game screen, so I've left those off.

    Now the only way I can be sure I'll notice messages directed my way is if I check the app every ten seconds during a conversation. I realize this might be desirable behavior for some people, but for me, it makes multitasking almost impossible. Please either revert it or make it an option to turn that setting off? I *like* running both versions at once and I got notifications through my phone just fine before.

    NiHZ's request really needs to be addressed with top priority.

    I moderate a busy discord, and it's not uncommon for people to @mention me when I'm not actively monitoring the chat.

    I need an option to be able to QUICKLY locate those mentions and the surrounding chat text, without being required to use mobile notifications.

    Slack has this capability, and I'm surprised that Discord still can't do this function.

    Mobile Push Notification does not work properly. If I'm logged into the desktop client, I do not get any notifications on my phone. I have to exit the application before it works. Very annoying when I step away from my PC to go watch a movie in the next room or something and I miss all notifications as my phone remains silent. At least give us the option for direct messages or channel wide mentions

    I just installed Discord on my Mac and I have the same issue as seen here: http://superuser.com/questions/1078723/disable-discord-dock-badge - Basically that red dot on the dock on the Discord app will not go away. Advice?

    The "Enable desktop notifications" setting doesnt just turn off the popups but the message sound aswell, even though the message sound box is checked. Would be nice if it would actually just turn off the popups.

    I'm having the same problem as Cambor and Lyron-Baktos in that when my desktop app is running I'm not getting any mobile notifications. It used to work fine...almost annoyingly well. However, now it seems to be broken.

    @DG That's no good. Can you shoot us your mobile specs & OS version to support@discordapp.com?

    So I'm using the desktop discord and I want to disable the visual notifications when I get messages as it tends to be fairly buggy and causes fracturing in the picture where they show up and I just don't want them in general. Problem is I do want the sound notifications and disabling desktop notifications disables the sound and visual. Is there any way to disable just the visual?

    @Hoff not at the moment, unfortunately. Sorry about that. =/

    @Cilantrelle any idea if such a feature is planned?

    @Hoff We've gotten a few requests for it, but nothign too major. It'd definitely help us if you could upvote at feedback.discordapp.com

    I have a problem. When I'm ingame (fullscreen) I don't get an desktop notification at all. I just hear the discord message sound, and not the message that is written. I don't know if it's a bug or not.

    @Lewd If you're not in game, do you see the popup at all?

    Is there a way to turn off the Windows 10 pop ups but keep the flashing? =O Specifically for DMs?

    So, Im having the same issue as @Aetas. I have unchecked "Enable Desktop Notifications" but it disables *all* notifications too. I found this reddit thread of people with a similar problem but it has no answer except that it's a Windows 7 bug in how Win7 deals with auto hide taskbar and Discord Desktop notifications. I have Win7 Home Premium SP1 and I use auto hide taskbar.

    I have found a temporary work around by enabling streamer mode and only having Disable Sounds unchecked, this stops the focus grab while allowing sounds. Also last note, I've primarily had this issue on private messages only.

    Is there any plan to add custom sounds for notifications? Specifically would like different sounds for different servers (or even per channel would be awesome).
