• WP-Admin side notifications take up more than half of the screen. There is no setting to disable showing notification for all users, therefore no way to have clients not see the notifications. We can’t expect all the clients to keep clicking close button.

    Those notifications are not visible to clients, assuming that your clients don’t have admin access to the back-end of your site.

    We are developers, clients in this context are site owners. They do have access to site admin side.

    I strongly believe that we are providing valuable advice and useful training for our users. Site admins are in general interested in how to improve tracking, and that’s mostly what those notifications provide. The site admin can easily close them all with a simple click.

    This is not a healthy amount.

    I am not against notification, if they are used sparingly or allowing opt-out for all users.

    In this case, they are used excessively and not allowing opt-out.

    In a big market segment, where clients (in this case site owners) are not doing anything technical, they have developers, marketers and everyone else doing this work for them. In these cases developers, who will make the choices of what plugins to use, will steer clear of overly obtrusive plugins as they will not give their clients (site owners) a good experience).

    Our next update will close the notifications for all users, not just for the one clicking that specific link.
