Hello, @susankrushinsky! The Bark team thanks you for your feedback! We are always listening to our Bark families, and are continually striving to bring you the best service and features.
I’ve got a bit of good news on # 2 for you: you can! Next to the alert on your parent dashboard, click or tap the Flag Icon to the far right of an alert. This will flag (or bookmark) those alerts so that you can quickly locate them again any time you’d like to by tapping Show all filters and choosing Flagged only as pictured here:
I hope this helps, and please don’t hesitate to email us at email@example.com any time we may assist you. We appreciate you, Susan!
