WOW those pop-ups have seriously festered your workday.
Not sure why, but I don't get them like you do.

Well, today I just kept calling while driving to an appointment. Had about an hour to kill while driving, so I was bored. Tried to be as annoying as possible......like pop ups.

Maybe I should start complaining to Microsoft every time Cortana pops up.
You can't uninstall it. I hate the bloody thing! Just click the x to get rid of it.
Probably not a good use of my time to complain daily though.

Ok....these daily Alamode Pop-ups have got to stop. Start up Total....a popup asking if I want to learn more about Quicksource and that I have "XX" amount of days left to try for free. I open the Side by Side Power view...I get a Popup advertising their new feature to automatically input MLS data (which is always sketchy at best and you spend more time correcting the data then if you were to input it yourself). I merge a file into another........yet another Pop-up.

I pay for software on my computer like anti-adware, anti-malware, anti-virus, etc... to prevent popups. I don't expect to pay almost $1000 a year to get popups from the company that I'm paying. Alamode told me to Enable and then Disable the features to get rid of them. Nope...that didn't happen. So now, I am sending a Feedback, a Tech request, and an email to everyone I can, complaining about these pop-ups EVERY TIME that I receive one. Maybe I will get to be an annoying to them as these popups are to me.

Sorry for the Rant.

I agree--quite annoying! And now that the month-long promotion is over there are still popups, though not quite as many...

It would be nice to be able to turn it off or select not to be notified about it anymore. I have to wait for it to load the county data then cancel, next they ask if I am sure, I am sure. I don't want to use it if it is going to cost me as I can easily type this data and I have to verify it anyway so please don't ask me again after the hundredth time! I am hoping that once they start charging for this that we will be able to opt-out.
Since the upgrade to Windows 11 has resulted in much less reliability and functionality, for me, in Total, I told tech support that it would have been nice, if they could have used that pop up window to tell us all, that we should wait to update to 11. Crickets from the Tech. He wouldn't answer me when I asked if, Sales is the only department allowed to instigate a pop up. Any other business behaved this way, to their customers, they would just go out of business. The only solution they have provided me, for these issues, is to roll back to Windows 10.

I had to update to a computer that had Windows 11, but did not see their warning about W11 on their website until after I did so. But I have not yet experianced any lack of function.......but still get the pop ups.

The Freebie is over: Quick & Smart.
Neither are found to be credible use information in my geographical area.

And with the mandate of ANSI using such could result in a misleading report.
