Allow users to disable "upgrade banner" in User Settings

Currently, when a new version of Alteryx Designer is released, you get a banner at the top of your Designer to upgrade. You can manually select to disable this for up to 30 days. 


However, this is really causing issues with Server compatibility. Users get notified to upgrade, thinking it's from the Server owners and upgrade then is no longer compatible with Server. Alternatively, it causes differences between users, etc. 


It would be ideal that it would be disabled in general but also controlled when software is pushed to machines through IT policies.

Hi @jessicathomas - sending you over to this article: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Ideas/Remove-newer-version-warning/idi-p/52562


This talks about how you can edit the User Settings to turn off Version Checking - we have done something similar in our company to avoid people trying to upgrade - we push this setting as a configuration while we are upgrading their Designer. 


Hope this helps!
