Stop unnecessary "New software is available" pop-up on each logon after a user has uninstalled an available application.
After a user installs an application that was deployed as "Available", but later uninstalls the application, the user gets a balloon pop-up every time they logon saying "New software is available".
There is NO way to prevent this from happening apart from removing the user from the collection where the application was deployed, and adding them back. This has been the case since CM12 was released but this is not a desirable behavior especially when there's no "valid" way of preventing this.

I'm one of those users that actually pays attention to system tray icons, have been doing so for a few decades. That means my system tray is always set to show all icons, and any icons that are not relevant to me are disabled first thing. I passionately loathe any 'utilities/agents/whatever' that don't allow me to choose to disable their system tray icon.
This is so overdue to be fixed. I get tired of people complaining to me about as if I designed this.
Please! Please! Please!

I'm getting the "New Software Is Available" pop up every 30 - 45 seconds, and I cannot get it to stop. I've been told to uninstall Software Center and reinstall it, but i can't seem to do that. It's very frustrating.
I would really like to just suppress this. We roll out quite a bit of software and I don't want the users getting spammed all the time but I do want other notifications when the apps are installing, succeed, or fail.
My company is also experiencing constant notification of New software available. It happens multiple times a day, every day. I cannot find any options to reduce the number of times this notification appears or stopping it all together.
Whenever we look in Software Center, there is nothing new on any of the nodes.
Ideally, we would like to have notifications of new Windows 10 upgrades or patches. It is less important to be notified that there is new software in Software Center especially at the frequency we are seeing it. Being able to stop these notifications would be awesome!
Please fix this issue! It's been a problem for far too long.

This has been annoying some of my customers who don't install all available software. If Software Center apps have been viewed since the app was available it should retain that they have already seen it is available.
There should be a per-application or per-deployment option like there is with software update deployments.

Any news on this? It´s really annoying. Noted since March 2017...Time for a fix!
Currently, if any application is deployed as available the user will get a 'New Software is Available' notification every single time the client starts. Forever. In 1610 a 'new' banner was added to the icons which goes away after 7 days. That's great but then so should the notification. To not tie these together greatly reduces the value of both of them since user are now expecting to see 'new' icons in the Software Center when they get notified that new software is available. After a few weeks of that they just stop paying attention to the notification.
Can’t believe Microsoft even programmed this stupid message to keep coming up anyway ….. why ? … it’s pointless.
Yip that will be great to have a fix for, cheers

I dont get the Problem, simply change the notifications to "only Computer restarts"
I second this motion!! It is available from app cat and once removed from the client it should no longer be in software center. Get calls all the time on this one.

We're having the same issue. If this behavior can't be fixed it would be nice to have at least an option in your Software Center to "reset" it, making it forget about anything you ever installed through the Application Catalog.
