    Hello,

    Just wanting to share a recent experience:

    I recently tried to install a new editor while the hub was showing a notification in the bottom about an Update.
    I ignored the Notification and clicked "Install" on my Editor Version of choice -> nothing happened. I tried again but without luck. At some point I decided to Update the Hub (as the notification told me).
    After that another notification popped up asking if I'd want to learn more about the new hub which I - again - ignored. I tried installing a new editor: The window closed but without feedback.
    Eventually I dismissed the notification to finally get the notification I was missing: I didnt had enough disc space. So maybe it would be nice if Notifications would have either a priority or the Hub could support displaying more then one notification (or more important messages could be shown elsewhere to make sure users get the information about immediate actions)

    I agree, had that a couple of times as well!
    (disk space tends to get rare with 50 different Unity installations ;))

    Hi!

    Yes, we are aware of this flaw! We're working on a better way to manage notifications so that not only this no longer occurs but that there is a way to view meaningful notifications even after they are hidden.

    Thanks for posting,
