The bark app shows x number of alerts but they are all community alerts. I only want the app icon to have an alert when there is an actual bark issue/alert/concern that needs checking.
Hello there! You should be able to configure your Connect community alerts by clicking or tapping your profile icon in the upper right of your screen, clicking / tapping your name, and clicking / tapping Preferences.
From the next screen, click / tap Notifications to configure to your liking.
Notification level can also be set per category. To change any of these defaults, see your user preferences, or visit the category page, and use the notification control above the topic list, on the right side.
You can change your notification level for any individual topic via the notification control at the bottom, and right hand side, of each topic.
Notification level can even be set per tag. To change any of these defaults, see your user preferences, or visit the tag page, and use the notification control above the topic list, on the right hand side.
I hope this helps you to configure your Connect Community notifications!
