Clear colored alerts bars when close alerts browser


Lacerte 2022 alerts show in colored bars across the top of the window.  When you open an alert from the bar or from the alerts icon, the browser appears.  It displays different than last year, and when you click the X in the upper right corner the browser closes, BUT the colored bars do not clear.  Please resolve

Thank you!  Completely agree!  I just shared this in the FB group "Lacerte Rescuers!" to try and get a lot more upvotes on this.

It's a pain, used to just see what the issue was. Now I will not bother checking as I know it may stay the same

Open the alerts > upper left are three vertically stacked dots/dashes > click on those > upper right side click on the three vertical dots > *select all* > click on the 'envelope'  (for mark as read).   

I may have missed a few steps... but start with the upper left three dots & follow the bouncing ball.

So, resolved - altho way more complicated now.

The new process is beyond frustrating and a complete waste of my time! Please fix!

Please resolve. It is a distraction.

Make it go away, same as prior years.  Once I glance at the alert, there is no reason for the color bars to remain.  Very, very annoying.

You should also filter the alerts to show unread ones.  That way there won't be alerts that you can't clear because they are too old to show up.

Returning Member

Yes, please make it like it's always been, with alert bars disappearing after you've clicked on them.
