Sync via button is slow #1764

Are you experiencing this issue in or your own instance?

  • My instance

馃悶 Problem
Updating via the sync button in the UI takes ~10s. In contrast, reloading the complete page takes < 1s.

馃幆 Goal

馃挕 Possible solutions

Not too important since I now just always reload the page. However, it makes a bit of a bad user experience when the button is spinning for a long time. If it鈥榮 not worth fixing it, maybe just remove the button? It鈥榮 not strictly necessary and better not having that button than a no-working one.

The sync button is doing more work that just refreshing the page, it's going to GitHub, checking all your notifications to see if they have been marked as read/unread and then syncing the issue/pull request details for each updated notification.

Thanks for the answer. In that case, it's ok. If you have any idea how to make this more obvious (e.g. a more descriptive tooltip - maybe even just "Sync with Github"; or a progress bar), IMHO that would improve the user experience. Otherwise this can be closed.
