Most notifications are useless: Use automation to get what you need where you need it

You know what everyone loves? A red dot staring them in the face. And a pop-up on their screen every three seconds. And apps telling them they have a notification when really it’s a new feature announcement. Can’t get enough of it.
 
If for some reason, though, those notifications don’t bring you extreme joy, you can use automation to funnel all the important ones into one spot—and turn off the rest. Own your notifications Recommended reading from the Zapier blog team Small business
