I've seen this twice now today from Windows 10 push notification


These are the popup notifications you get on the bottom right of the screen after allowing a website to deliver notifications. Not sure why it's giving this error

Hey Matt, Ryan just pointed this out to me and I think I know what this issue is. We recently switched our push notification service and there are remnants of code for our old system that are causing this. This error should occur whenever someone who is registered for push on the old system and we send a notification directly from our 3rd party system. It's trying to get a notification from community that doesn't exist in our servers. I really wish that we coded it to where if it errors it just swallows up the notification instead of popping up on the screen and saying "Hey guess what?! We messed up somewhere!!". Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I'll get on this as soon as I can. In the meantime, you might be able to stop these from popping up again by going to your push settings and re-enabling them (I think...maybe...hopefully... either way I'm going to address this!)

I've not seen that one yet, nor has the site asked if I want to allow notifications, but the 'back to top' button at the bottom right (something I'd like to see on all websites) doesn't work in Edge for SW community

Yeah I don't remember it ever asking either, but if it did I probably would have said yes. Come to think of it, I don't remember ever actually seeing a notification from SW community before this

I'm currently at All Access or I'd look into this. Instead, I'll tag a few people who might be able to get to the bottom of this faster.
