Notification Type - Masthead Timer Options

Clarizen. When are you going to finally add Timer Options to the Notify action in Workflows? The problem is that ALL notifications appear on all Windows open to Clarizen, so imagine some of our users that actually have 10 Windows open to different Projects?

Pop-Up notification will appear on every Window and will not close until you click on the OK button; which is a problem when you have a LOT of alerts going out.

Therefore, we default to the Red, Green and Yellow Masthead notifications; because these automatically disappear after 10 seconds. These also appear on EVERY Window open; but at least they disappear after 10 seconds, so what is the problem?

The problem is that 10 seconds is too short and we have some users who are very slow readers or have to reach for their glasses. Masthead notifications should auto disappear after a while; but we should be able to extend it to 30 or even 60 seconds. This will allow any "background" pop-ups to disappear on their own; but will give the user enough time to actually read the message.

Another option would be to LIMIT ANY NOTIFICATION to appear only on the "active window" versus on every window; which is annoying.

For anyone reading this, please click on the UP VOTE; because Clarizen will not act on suggestions until it reaches a large enough vote. Thanks.
