4.9 Balloon Notifications Might Not Display

By default, Filr displays balloon notifications on your desktop when certain events occur, such as when the Filr application is launched, a file or folder is shared, file or folder is made online or offline, a blacklisted application is opened, or a desktop client upgrade is available.

However, beginning with Filr 3.1, Filr administrators can enable or disable balloon notifications on users’ desktop.

If your Filr administrator has disabled balloon notifications, you can use the Filr Desktop Console to view the following information about the notifications and take appropriate action.

  • Recent Activity: Displays recent activities in the desktop application, such as file or folder operations.

  • System Alerts: Displays various alerts such as new software updates, expired passwords, server downtime.
