    I have desktop notifications enabled for gmail in chrome. When I get a new email (while the gmail tab is open), the notification center displays the popup banner fine. However, after the banner goes away, the notification is gone for good -- it doesn't appear in the notification center sidebar like notifications from other apps. Is anyone else having this issue?

    Go into system preference, Notifications, find chrome and select Alerts instead of Banner

    see if this fixes it.

    It shows an alert, but, like the banner, it doesn't appear in the notification center sidebar.

    I just tested it, after figuring out how to enable desktop alerts, and they are not appearing in NC after the banner goes away.

    Same here, whether in banner mode or alert mode, the chrome notifications do not appear in the NC tray. I have seen other forums where people have the same issue. I believe its a NC bug, but will be glad if someone provides a solution or chrome & NC fixes this soon.

    The gmail notifications only work if gmail is currently open in a tab and the email you receive is from a different account (sending myself an email never triggered the notification).

    There is also a link that you have to click, along with the circle option to select, to allow the browser to have access to your desktop. Its in the same spot as the option to select, it says something like "click here to enable desktop notifications" or something like that (I dunno, I'm at work, can't check from here).

    Yes exactly....I too noticed the same. The notification appears in the sidebar as long as the banner/alert is there, and removes itself from the sidebar when the banner/alert goes away.

    Chrome just has its own notifications. NC doesn't support it as of yet.

    select text notifications

    After installing the extension did you select the notification option "Text notifications" ?

    Same problem. Checker extension with text notifications doesn't fix it. Looks like we'll be waiting for an NC update. I really wish there was a good way to get gmail to show up in there with out it going through a mail client.
