Slack messages are not getting marked as read / red notification dot is always here


The issue I’m facing is …
Slack unread banners aren’t going away despite navigating to the thread and focusing / responding in the thread. I end up needing to manually dismiss the unread banner or quitting and restart Station.

Here’s the detailed report

  • Trigger: get new Slack messages
  • Issue: Slack messages not getting marked as read
  • Explanatory gifs/pictures (we really need that :pray: ):
  • OS version: macOS Sierra 10.12.6
  • Station version: 1.0.11
Slack notification dot even when nothing is updated

Facing the same issue. Would be so useful if this gets fixed!

Facing the same issue. The notifications do not disappear when after I have replied to the notification. Escape button doesn’t work either.

Stationversion 1.8.2

I’m not sure if this is similar or not, but I have two slack accounts where the new notification icon will not go away. They both do not sync the logos as well. I’ve tried removing/re-adding the accounts with no luck.


Stationversion 1.9.0

Soooo annoying! Please fix asap.

+1 to this getting fixed. I’m a zero-unread-messages fanatic, so this is extremely frustrating. Using the latest version of MacOS and Station at time of writing.

Same. I am having the same issue. It happens occasionally and is very annoying. I have to revert to using the actual slack app

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

I’m seeing the little red notification dot on all slack channels even when nothing is updated. Is there a way to change this behaviour? For example on messenger, it’s just a faded logo, and when a new message comes in the red dot will appear (which I guess is how it should function).

:warning: Mandatory details

  • :gun: Trigger — General use of station with multiple slack accounts in the sidebar

  • :boom: Issue — notification dot always on (should be off until a new message is there)

  • :desktop_computer: OS version — Mojave 10.14

  • :gear: Station version — 1.29.0

This issue is still ongoing. Is it going to be fixed?

Facing the same issue. PLease get this fixes, so frustrating!!!

I also face this issue but when I can’t exactly narrow down when and why it happens because it doesn’t always occur. When I restart station then slack goes back to behaving correctly. FWIW whenever the unread count doesn’t change the slack keyboard shortcuts also stop working.

Can we get any updates on this please? This issue has been going on for a looong time now, any word from the devs would be great! Thanks!!
