    Hello,

    Recently, I have noticed a strange behavior with the notifications sent to my Windows 10 laptop:
    I do have a pop-up at the bottom of my screen and the notification is present in the notification center, but it disappears after a few seconds. If I am not in front of my computer and not checking my phone, I will never be notified I received a Whatsapp message for instance.
    Here is a video of my issue (my phone is locked at this time, and the notification is still present on my phone) :

    However, it is not happening for SMS notifications. Side question for this : is it normal that only the most recent SMS notification appears ? Check video below of what I mean :


    Is it a Join, Chrome or Windows issue ?

    Thanks for your help

    Ok, I think I found the solution to the 1st question:
    The notification disappears because of the parameter "Number of seconds a notification should show (max 25 seconds): ". I just need to leave it blank and the notification stays in Windows 10 Notification Center. I copied the value from my old Windows 7 computer, but the behavior seems to be different on Windows 10:
    - On Windows 7, it seems to be the time pop-up notification stays on screen (there is no notification center)
    - On Windows 10, it is the time it stays in the Notification Center. It remains there if the value is blank.

    Still, has anyone an answer for the SMS question ? Why only the most SMS notification appears ?

    Thanks !

    Hi, glad you figured that out!
    About SMS notifications, only the most recent SMS for a contact will show. If you get SMS from more contacts those will also show the latest one :)

    Hope this clarifies it!

    Thank you for the clarification.
    Anyway, is it a feature that could be implemented ? The Whatsapp messages of a given contact are grouped under a single notification. I guess it is possible for SMS too. At least, my SMS app does that on my phone.

    You could always synchronize the SMS App's notifications :)

    Otherwise can you add that request here so I can give it proper priority? https://joaoapps.helprace.com/ Thanks!

    I tested your suggestion to synchronize the SMS app notifications. It does what I want, however, it does not bring the cool "Copy Number" function. I'll create a feature request then !
    Thanks for your quick reply anyway !
