I'm following the Extending QgsTask example to create a custom QgsTask.

However, I don't want it to display the Task Complete notification* every time the task completes successfully.

Is it possible (preferably using PyQGIS) to suppress the "Task Complete" notification?

* In Windows 10 at least, the notification appears in the bottom right of the screen above the time (with a ding!).

  • Thanks @Fran Raga, though I'd much prefer to do it specifically for this task (e.g. using PyQGIS), rather than for ALL QGIS notifications

No - there's no API available to control the notification on a task-by-task basis (as of QGIS 3.8)

  • Not the answer I was hoping for, but an answer nonetheless!
