    For example weather bug puts the temperature at the top but also shows a status in the drop-down with more info is there a way to lower its priority so it only says running but keeps the temperature on top of the phone?

    so what is the latest android on the z2 force? It really would help to know for those of us who don't use the phone. Would make it easier to search for an answer

    I spent some time yesterday and could not find anything about this other than turning off notifications. maybe use another weather app or email the app creator and see if there is a way though the settings.

    Why not use the widget that came with the phone? It shows current temp in the widgeyand no additional notifications.

    that is what I do. though you do need to use a widget that will sync regularly.

    The Command Center Widget on modern Moto phones has constant temp display and is always in sync (at least very regularly).

    What the OP is asking is built into that app. If the app was designed with a Notification bar icon AND a persistent Notification tray notification then it was also either designed with the options to disable those within the app, or it wasn't. There is nothing in native Android to control that. Take the GSSM Battery app as an example. If you install it and do nothing within the apps Settings you end up with an icon in the status bar AND a persistent notification in the Notification tray. It's redundant if you ask me, but maybe some folks like it. In either case that is part of that app, not part of Android itself. Within that apps Settings are options to disable each of those if you want.

    What weather widge that came with the phone can you screenshot the widge in widgets and show me

    Are you talking about about time date and weather widget. Then I would have to reserve a screen for that widget. I just want a notification widget not a screen widget
