iOS notifications won’t go away!

Sophie Brodie August 14, 2020

I’m using the Trello app on iOS and keep checking and marking notifications as read when they come in. However, the little “1” in a red circle WILL NOT go away from the Trello app on my home screen. I’ve tried clearing notifs multiple times, going into every single card to make sure I’m not missing something, logging out and back in, deleting and reinstalling the app. I just can’t get it to go away. Does anyone know what to do?

Only thing that worked for me was going to account > logout.  Then logged back in.  Persistent notifications disappeared.  Didn’t have to uninstall or mess with cache or notification settings.

2 years later and I’m still having the same issue. Logging out and then back in on the app does clear the notification, but the next time I get a new notification I’m unable to clear it. So I log out then back in and repeat the process. Would love to see a permanent fix for this. I’m on the iPhone app and have tried all the other suggestions above.

Similar to Andrew and Sophie, I have a badge notification that shows '2' despite having to have viewed all notifications. Though the issue if small, I hope there will be a solution for it soon! :)

The above did not work for me. If I turn off badges or turn off all notifications it does go away but there are no notifications in my notification window so I’m not sure where the “1” badge is even coming from. Does anything else in Trello generate those number badges?

Agree! It defeats the purpose of notifications.

Hi! I have this problem off and on. Sometimes it goes away on it's own, sometimes it doesn't. One thing I figured out this morning is that I had an unread notification on my work account. I'm logged in on both in the app and switch back and forth, but I rarely actually switch because I'm a board member on my personal account too. I figured it out when I tried logging out and logging back in. Since I was still signed in on my work account, it just defaulted me over to that instead of logging me out completely, and I noticed the unread notification. I'm not sure if you use two accounts but might be worth going to settings and selecting "Switch Account"! Hope that works for you!!!

Hi everyone, 

Keli here with Trello's support team–I'm so sorry for the trouble!

A persistent badge count usually signals that your Trello app's push notifications were disabled at some point so the app doesn't have the right permissions to check back in with the server to sync up.

Here's what normally kickstarts a notification sync: 

  • Open the Trello app and tap 'Notifications'
  • Double-check that all notifications are marked as 'read'
  • Tap the settings cog at the top to open push notification settings
  • Un-check all notification options, tap the back button, then go back into the settings cog and check them all back on
    • Notifications already off? Go ahead and turn them back on!

We're looking into a long-term fix for this, but for now, that should get things working! If it doesn't, please reach out to our team directly at and we're happy to dig in. :)

I appreciate the response and effort, it is nice to know that this issue is not languishing in the ether, unnoticed (ironic for a notification issue).

I also recognize the long-term fix will be the final answer, however, I will point out that this solution is similar to previous solutions proposed in the thread already. For the purpose of sound discipline and test, I attempted it three times (once as you described, once as you described but with a closing out of the app before turning all notifications back on, and finally a third time with a full deletion of the app and reboot of the phone before reinstalling and turning all notifications on). The result: I still have a small red "1" in my top right corner.

The human brain, being the great compensator that it is, is already starting to make me not see the notification badge, due to how long it has been there.

I will reach out directly too, as you requested, but there are others who may try this and think it is just them struggling, so wanted to provide collective feedback

Well put. I have also been missing actual notifications due to this problem. These numbers have become screen furniture. It defeats the purpose of them entirely if we can’t rely on them to behave the way they are meant to at least 99% of the time. It should be a priority issue.

2024 and this issue still hasn’t been fixed (4 years!)

I understand that this is a minor bug with a temporary fix, but it’s still extremely annoying as I like to be on top of my notifications at all times.

I had the same problem and cleared it by going into the main iOS settings > notifications and turned off all notifications for trello.  I then deleted and reinstalled trello on my iOS device and turned settings back on. This seems to have fixed the problem.

This works!! Thanks Stuart

Did not work for me either. Even added in a full reboot of the phone after deleting the app and before re-installing. No joy

Hi @Sophie Brodie ,

Welcome to the community!

I think there might be a problem with your device. You can try with a pc/mac browser to check if you are missing any notification or not.

You can also ask trello support here
