Is there a way to "mute an entire slack team" so that I won't get that blue icon notification? Thanks.
I don't seem to have the setting that Shawn mentions, but i was able to make this work by opening up the
/usr/lib/slack/resources/app.asar.unpacked/src/static directory, making a copy of the
slack-taskbar-rest.png file and renaming it to
slack-taskbar-unread.png to overwrite the version with the blue dot.
of course, that gets rid of the blue dot for all teams, but that's what i wanted.
I don't see a way to modify this per channel but you can change it per team. In your preferences go to "notifications" and uncheck "show a badge on Slack's icon to indicate new activity" and that should do it.
