Patching/Update Notifications are in the way

I've had a number of users upset with us that KACE update & patching notifications appear when they're in a shared-screen webinar with a client and there's no noticeable way to dismiss or hide them without KACE performing its patching tasks (which can negatively influence performance and/or reboot the system). Is there a way to minimize or "send-to-back" these notifications?

I had the same feedback, and so I included this in the "Progress Message" of my patching jobs:

Patches and updates are being installed.  To close this window, right-click on "KACE Patching" on the Task Bar, and select Close Window.
Doing this just closes the KUserAlert.exe task, and does not affect the patching process.  

It's not perfect, but it'll do.  Quest Professional Services may be able to program an OK button on it for you (for a price).
