the difference between needs and wants is one of the conversations i had with my kids when they were little. you want a cookie. you do not need a cookie. unfortunately apparently not everyone gets that conversation. we use slack at work. and slack is very clear. it NEEDS my permission to send me notifications. no. slack wants my permission to send notifications. it doesn't need it. alerting me every fucking day that it needs my permission is irritating. and is not going to get it permission. it will however get me to stop using the product.
