Any Way to Stop Carpool Reminders?

Postby mattlach » Thu Jun 21, 2018 8:51 pm

So,

I am not interested in this feature and will never use it. The constant reminders and having to dismiss them is really starting to get on my nerves, especially how they sometimes come up when you try to report something while driving. This could be a potential safety hazard.

Is there any way to tell the damned app to PLEASE never remind me of carpool again?

I have found the "Carpool" section in the settings, but tapping it doesn't take me to settings, just to a section where it wants me to sign up. I just want to disable it all together.

How did anyone think this was a good idea? It's really starting to royally piss me off the way Google and its subsidiaries keep trying to shove new unwanted features down peoples necks. Absolutely EVERYTHING should be opt-in only, and nag free. This is software 101.

Staff is aware of the issue and working to resolve it. The intent wasn't to have that pop-up for every session and not provide the ability to silence it. It'll get fixed ASAP.

I use this app daily and a swear to God if they don't give me a way to shut off this annoying Carpool Notification, I'm going to remove this app from my phone and move to something else and I'm going to recommend the same thing to the 800 friends I have on Facebook and the 5000 people I work with at NXP, that up until now, I have recommended Waze to. ARE YOU HEARING US WAZE? FIX THIS CRAP RIGHT NOW!

So, are we able to completely remove the little guy doing the Nazi salute in the lower right corner? Or just not be nagged every 10 seconds to haul people we don't know to work?

You cannot remove the Carpool icon/menu from the bottom right.

Your carpool reminder popped up and made me miss my exit, this app I have been using for years is now making my drive harder not easier. If it’s not fixed within the week I’m switching as well. I have used and recommended this to everyone. I work from home and drive a lot. Your carpool stunt will kill your user base, better fix it quick.
