By default if an automation from Shortcuts has been running on your iOS device, you get a banner notification. Since you usually know what you’ve configured in your Shortcuts automations, these notifications seem to be redundant. Luckily, you can get rid of it.
Update iOS 15.4: Apple has now added the possibility to disable notifications for automations on a per-automation base. To disable it, open the automation in the Shortcuts app and deselect the last entry “Notify When Run“.
Notice: You cannot disable notifications for regular shortcuts. Only notifications from automations can be disabled this way.
You might think it’s as easy as it should be, just go into the notification settings and disable banner notifications of the Shortcuts app. Unfortunately, the Shortcuts app is not listed in the notification settings. You need to change these settings elsewhere.
To do so you have to use the Screen Time settings, go to the Settings app and select Screen Time. Below your Daily Average, open to the See All Activity entry.
Now scroll down to the “Notifications” area and click on “Show More” until you see the entry “Shortcuts”. You need to have at least a single notification in your selected time from the Shortcuts automations. If there isn’t any, check another time range until you can find it.
You need to open this Shortcuts entry. If you can’t, wait a little while until everything has been loaded and there is an arrow on the right side of the entry. It may take some time, depending on your device usage.
After clicking on it, you can find the regular notification settings that you had been looking for in the general notification settings. Here, you can disable all notifications of the Shortcuts app.
Unfortunately, this setting is temporarily. As soon as you restart the iPhone or the UI, you need to set your desired setting again in order to keep it working.
