Why does this app not exist

I am trying to locate a basic notifications app to inform members when they sign in of new things and so on.

I don't want an over complicated app just to do this feature, only the user to see a red warning like in the image below, when you click it a small java box shows the message, they can then discard it.

Any ideas to where I can see this app?

Hey, @DRP996.

Thanks for reaching out and for your screenshot. This is helpful and an interesting question.

I would love to help you dig further into our App Store to find an app that would help! Are you looking to add these notifications to your storefront when customers login to your store, or do you want this to display in your Shopify admin? 

If you could provide us with more details, the community and I can take a deeper look to help!

Talk soon,

Hi it would be for when members sign in they could see a notice, they can then view that notice.

I want to send them from some kind of admin panel, its just to keep them updates about things

Thanks for the additional details, @DRP996, I’m hearing that you want to show customers who sign into your website a list of notifications. Is that right? Do you run a wholesale store? If you do, then I would recommend adding a page with a list of these updates to your navigation

If that’s not correct, then my other thought is that you are looking to add a notification area to your Shopify admin, so that you can show staff who sign-in what changes or updates were made to the store. Is that correct?

If it is, we don’t have an app that has this feature available. I would be happy to forward this as a suggestion to our developers so that they are aware of how we can improve Shopify for you and all of our merchants. If we move forward with this, it will be added to our changelog or announcements page

Why is this important to add to your Shopify admin? I would love to know so that I can add this to your suggestion.

Chat soon,

Also try search for annoucements, site announcements, announcements button, messages and similar word combos.

A cheap hack is to make this out of a navigation menu.

For something this specific this is normally a bespoke solution either a custom app, or a theme customization that reads in a page, metafields or external data.

Or a third party service, I think canny.io can be repurposed to do something like this as a bell popup panel.

See this page and click "Product widget halfway down the pages(see screenshot) https://canny.io/features/product-changelog 

So currently if you want that it will not be a cheap monthly app but something that has to be built to meet your specific business requirements.
