Remove notification FAIL

Post by Lucy » 10 Nov 2019 00:11

Hey.. i got an app that is being difficult. Its an asteroid tracker that periodically pops up a notification when something is detected.
The notification CANNOT be swiped off. The only way to dismiss is to press the "CANCEL" button. I have tried desperately hard to have automagic do it for me but everything i try does not work. The only working action i could do is "click notification" which then opens the app, so not working well for me. I have taken screenshots of the apps notification as well as several actions i have attempted to utilize but failed. Please let me know if there is another way around it.

Actions attempted:

Notification to remove:

With the perform action... every way i write the "CANCEL" button fails. Says no such button exists in flow error. I have tried writing it all ways and leaving blank. I have also tried to use command line to kill, tried opening, show homescreen and kill, tried everything.

Hi Lucy
Use trigger "Notification on Statusbar Displayed" Select app name enter text * in text field
Use action "Perform Action on Notification on Statusbar: Click notification" . Use Click button option.
Use condition debug dialog to know the exact button.

I have done exactly this😥 except debug... will see if it (doubtfully) makes a difference - the ui event text in rhe notification and the button text also. The notification itself shows "CANCEL" but the info from the event captured says "Cancel". I have tried both

It says.. "following buttons are available: []"
For some reason automagic cannot read the button. Looks like i have to take it up with the dev of that app.

Hi Lucy
In this flow simply modify app name and in text field enter *
i think this will fulfil your needs.

Lol.. thanks sweetie but that is exactly what i have. It does not work for this notification. The dev has changed the way the system handles the notification!? Cause im telling you, what you presented is EXACTLY what i already have as flow (with correct app name and text fields modified)

It seems that CANCEL button is somewhat special button that is different than usual notification action button. Maybe it implements the widget method, which I don't know how to deal with it yet.

The other workaround is using Snooze notification on statusbar. But I don't know if it will be ugly solution or maybe even can stack up the notification until you open the app (opening the app should have clear all the queue of snoozed notification).

Hmm... yeah i knew the notification was handled in a different manner which is why in trying to contact the dev and see if they can assist me. That snooze option i think may stack. But hey, im willing to try anything. Thank you

Hi Lucy
Use AutoNotification plugin to do that. Simply install plugin . Open it. In standalone features. Click on

notification blocking
+ icon
And add which you want.
