I can't reproduce this. Clocks (gnome-clocks-3.26.1-1.fc28.x86_64) just moved to another workspace still triggers the notification and the audible alarm in the current workspace.

Are you under wayland or X11 ? Can you try with the other one ?

Comment 2 luigi votta 2017-12-12 13:41:27 UTC
I suppose to be in wayland. I'll try!

Comment 3 luigi votta 2017-12-12 13:46:41 UTC
Just now, to be sure, repeated the problem. Setted 1 min on timer, launched, and moved it to below workspace. Waited three min, no alarm. Switched to below workspace and alarm triggered.

Comment 4 luigi votta 2017-12-12 14:01:45 UTC
Another try: Opened the clock in a below workspace, launched after 1 min time-out setting. Switched focus to high workspace, no alarm triggered after expire. Switched again to below, and alarm was triggerd.

Comment 5 Yanko Kaneti 2017-12-12 14:10:18 UTC
Sorry, my mistake, I mixed up Timer and Alarm. Reproduced with timer.
I'll try to chase this down.

Many thanks!
Otherwise my pasta lunch overcooks! :-D

Comment 7 Yanko Kaneti 2017-12-12 19:02:21 UTC
Filed an upstream bug with a proposed fix

Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2018-02-20 15:22:55 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.

Comment 9 Yanko Kaneti 2018-11-12 08:36:28 UTC
FWIW an upstream fix for this landed in the clocks master branch released as 3.31.1, and currently built for rawhide. I don't think the fix will be coming for the older stable releases.
