xxx has signed in

Ever since I upgraded my network Macs to TV14, I get messages being spit out on my machines that "xxx has signed in". Uh, nothing going on on computer xxx that I know about, and Teamviewer has been running continuously on it, as far as I know. What is triggering that message, and how can I shut it off?

Maybe it's the Accounts -> "Notify me when partner signs in"   checkbox? I get these messages when no one is doing anything in particular on computer xxx, though, and certainly not signing in to Teamviewer.

Re: xxx has signed in

Hi @DanLester ,

Thank you for your post.

Yes, you are right. Please deselect "Notify me when partner signs in" under Extras > Options > Computers & contacts.

Hope this will help you.

Best regards,
Yuri

Re: xxx has signed in

Hi @DanLester ,

Thank you for your reply.
This notification appears for all partners.

A "Partner" can be a person OR a device.

So if a device comes online, you will be notified.
If someone signs into their account, you will be notified.

So essentially, this notifies you of any changes to the online state of anything in your contacts list.

It does not just notify when someone signs into a TeamViewer account.
I hope this clarifies this for you.

Best regards,
Yuri

Re: xxx has signed in

OK, thank you. I'm still a bit confused why I'm being notified when no one on computer xxx is signing in. They certainly aren't signing in to Teamviewer. What exactly am I being notified is happening?

Re: xxx has signed in

Is there a way to globally disable this?  Maybe with policies?  Or add it do the custom deployment?  We are using a demo of the corporate version right now.
