Feature Request for Sophos Central - Application Control Alerts Toggle

We run all systems through application control and love it, the only thing I would like to request is the ability to not only block applications, but toggle the alert of when the application is blocked on or off. We have a lot of users that call for the same thing: Microsoft Your Phone is blocked, what does that mean?

We have to assure them that it means nothing and to just ignore it. Of course the problem with teaching employees to ignore Sophos alerts, tends to train users to ignore Sophos alerts in general. 

Please add the ability to toggle alerts on/off for blocked applications.

  • Hi Aaron,

    Thanks for reaching out to the Sophos Community Forum.

    Could you clarify if you're looking to prevent the UI Toast notification on the local device from coming up, or if you're looking to prevent the event from being shown in Sophos Central? 

    For the Application Control policy, it is possible to toggle "Enable Desktop Messaging for Application Control" if you do not wish for the toast notifications to be shown.
