In JIRA, how do I remove the Notifications icon in the left sidebar? The bright red unread notifications count is incredibly distracting. I don't need the notifications panel since I receive all notifications via e-mail anyway.
Right now, JIRA doesn't have a feature to remove the notification icon/panel from the left sidebar.
However, we've created a new feature request to our development team to add this feature.
I strongly recommend you to vote in this feature request and drop a comment to let the product management know about your use case. By doing this, it will ensure you're proactively informed of progress and updates going forward.
Please, note that all of feature requests are implemented following our Feature Request Policy.
I got sick of waiting for Atlassian so I created a userscript that removes the notification icon. You'll have to tweak it for your company-specific domain to install it but it works great for me. https://yasmar.net/posts/remove-the-jira-notification-badge/
