Feature Request: Dismiss Calendar and Reminder alerts from all units

One of the issues I really like in regards to the Apple ecosystem is the machine independence. I can obtain alerts, textual content messages, and even cellphone calls on whichever machine occurs to be in entrance of me on the time, whether or not it’s Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

And for many issues, that works properly…

For instance, if I obtain a textual content message and skim it on my Mac, that can even mark it as learn on my iPhone and iPad. If I dismiss a notification on my Watch, that can even dismiss it from my iPhone. (Not that there isn’t room for improvement right here, too.)

But there are two exceptions to this: Calendar and Reminder alerts.

My Apple Thunderbolt Display died just lately. While I’m ready to take a look at the brand new 38-inch LG monitor to see whether it ticks my boxes, I’m working immediately on my MacGuide Pro whereas utilizing my 12.9-inch iPad Pro as a second monitor on my left (utilizing Sidecar), whereas my iPhone sits on a wi-fi charging stand to my proper. That means I’ve three Apple screens in entrance of me, and each Calendar and Reminder alerts pop up on all three.

That’s high-quality. Given I could possibly be in entrance of solely one among them at any given level, that’s the way it ought to work. What’s not high-quality is that dismissing the alert on one machine doesn’t achieve this for the others. So after I get an alert, I exploit the trackpad to dismiss the one on my Mac, then attain over to the left to dismiss the one on my iPad, and at last attain over to the suitable to dismiss the one on my iPhone.

That appears a foolish hole within the ecosystem. If this yr’s macOS replace is to be a “Snow Leopard” one, targeted extra on bug fixes and tweaks than shiny new options, that might be a really wise one so as to add to the listing.
