"Don't show this again" option for "Woohoo" notifications

By: silvercentral | 01-08-2015 18:57

There are still requests in the forum on how to switch off the irritating giffgaff to giffgaff "Woohoo! That phone call or text was free!" message.

To do that, users have to go to their profile page and turn off notifications from the phone settings, which may sound complicated to do for someone who's new or not tech-minded.

I was wondering if it wouldn't be easier to have an option to switch these off there and then, as a link from the message itself. As an example, apps can sometimes pop up a notification to prompt for a rating in the AppStore and usually you have a "Don't ask me again" option. Perhaps there could be something similar.

I apologise if there has already been a similar suggestion before.

Update 27/08/15

Hi, thank you for your comments. Sorry I haven't been able to reply before.

My idea is meant mainly to help new or occasional users, who have not become familiar with the settings page. The "Woohoo" message seems to be a peculiarity of our super-firendly network and it seems to be an irritant for many people. I myself got rid of it within two days of joining giffgaff. To do that I had to consult the community database, something that not all inexperienced users would have the time, skill or patience for.

Therefore, I think my idea still has some value.

Thank you.

You can turn these off if you go into your personal gg settings

I think it would be a brill idea as I'm not technically minded and have problems understanding some of the jargon.
