How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

On the top of support.ptc.com some notifications are display - see below.

A few weeks ago it was enough to click on the cross and the notifications disappeared permanently. Now they reappear after window refresh.

Does anybody know how to get rid of these notifications ?

Thanks for any comment 🙂

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

I have the same problem too.  No matter how many time I click the "x", they keep coming back.  I think clearing the browser's cache, downloads, history, etc. might help, but I really don't want to erase that stuff...

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

I just tried with Firefox.  Clicked the "X" to remove them all, then logged out of support.  As soon as I logged back in (never closed the browser), they all came back.  Ugh.  @Heidi, any suggestions?

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

The same happens to me for all browsers

@Jaime_Lee 

please can you suggest who can I contact to report the issue ?

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

I tried contacting Heidi directly but her email bounced making me think she's no longer with PTC.  I'm not sure who else is monitoring the eSupport area here on the community...

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

@TomU   you are correct, Heidi has moved on.  I will send an internal note to her team, and see if someone can reply to this thread.  @MartinHanak   Thank you for tagging me!

@TomU , @MartinHanak

Our systems team has been investigating this issue over the last weeks and the initial fix submitted did not address the problem. As a measure to protect the experience with the portal, I've temporarily brought down the banners (the grey boxes with visuals). Alerts are still in place, due to their critical nature, and we're working to have a solution which will allow users to cleanly dismiss both item types as soon as possible.

Thanks,

Peter.

Hi,

thank you for sending explanation. I would welcome the option to configure both banners and alerts. I don't need to see information from areas that don't interest me.

Best regards

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

Hi Martin,

The mechanism to tailor the Alerts and Banners shown according to your interests is in the top level navigation under [YOUR_NAME] # My Web Account # Reinitialize product preferences.

Currently this isn't working as intended (we think root cause is same as the Dismiss issues), for example when I configure my preferences to Windchill, I still see the Creo Elements / Direct 20.1.3.0 Alert.

Once this is addressed, the Alerts and Banners will align to the product interests our users declare.

Thanks,

Peter.

Hi,

thanks for providing information.

1.]

Reinitialize product preferences does not enable to see and modify current user setting.

2.]

I would prefer to place alerts&banner configuration under [YOUR_NAME] # My Web Account # Manage Notifications

User cannot send empty settings, system requests to select at least one item.

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

Thanks for confirming, Martin. The Systems team pushed a fix yesterday, which seems to have addressed the issues.

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

Does this fix also stop users from seeing alerts about things they're not interested, or is that still coming in the future?

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

Hi Tom,

The fix aligns Alerts to your product preferences, for example, if you select CAD software, and Creo Elements/Direct Modeling, you'd see the 20.1.3.0 release announcement and the US Thanksgiving alert (which is set up for all Products).  If you remove CAD / Creo Elements/Direct Modelling preference and add, say, IoT / ThingWorx, you'd just see the Thanksgiving alert, as here are no current ThingWorx alerts.

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

@PeterCase, I just walked through this resetting process.  Some observations:

  1. It's annoying that there's no way to see your current selected preferences.
  2. I'm still seeing alerts for Creo Elements/Direct, even though I did not select that as one of the products I use.
  3. After going though the reset process and not selecting Axeda, existing alerts for Axeda immediately disappeared from the page.  (This is good!)
  4. I'm still not able to make the alerts go away.  Clicking the 'x' will make them disappear for a time, but reloading the page will make them come right back.  Logging out of ptc.com and then logging back in doesn't make any difference either.  I just tested this in Chrome and Firefox, and the behavior is the same.

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

Hi Tom,

We have longer term plans and designs around Preference Management which expose the current Products / Roles selected in Onboarding.

Could you confirm that the stickiness issue you were seeing is now gone (or if still present, let us know the title of the alert you're seeing after a dismiss) ? We're able to see an item for your account in the "dismiss bucket" for the "PTC_Creo_Elements_Direct_20_1_3_0_now_available" alert on our side.

Please also let us know if you're seeing anything unexpected in future (i.e. not for the 3 products you've selected, and not a Service Alert), and we'll investigate.

Many thanks, and happy Thanksgiving!

Peter.

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

No alerts are visible when I log in right now.  🙂

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

@PeterCase,

I'm not seeing any change.  If I close all the alerts, navigate to some other page (inside PTC.com), and then return to the support page, all of the alerts are back again.

 

Just out of curiosity, is clearing these alerts something that is browser based or something that is user account based?  If I clear the alerts in one browser, should they continue to appear in another browser or on another computer, or should dismissing them take affect everywhere?

Re: How to get rid of notifications shown on support.ptc.com page

Actually, I just tried again in Firefox and that time it seems to have taken.  Getting rid of them in Chrome didn't seem to work, bet getting rid of them in Firefox removed them from all browsers.  (I guess that also answers my previous question.)  😉
