    Hi there!

    I finally got the Anniversary Update to my Lumia 640 today, and I was excited to fine tune the notification settings. From what I heard/read, I was expecting to only get one notification per event, as there is an option to "Upload notification from this PC to the cloud", (in my PC's Cortana settings, under "Edit Sync Settings"), with the description, of "This helps prevent getting the same notification twice".
    I was expecting something like getting a facebook or e-mail notification on my PC when it's turned on, and not getting it on my phone, since that counts as duplicate. I just simply want to get stuff on my PC when I'm using it, and not on my phone.
    However, I always get the same notification twice (for example, for the facebook app, installed both on my PC and my phone).
    I tried google-ing the thing, but didn't got anywhere. :(

    Is there something I misunderstood, or I configured wrong, or simply this isn't how this feature works? Should I try playing around with this feature, or just simply disable a bunch of notification on my PC and others on my phone?
