Hey Samsung,

 
Why did you remove the Notification Categories?

You used to allow users to easily change individual notifications within a single app. Now we have to go into the app in question, and HOPE it allows us to do the same. If not, then we just have to deal with it? Why do you seem to be slowly removing aspects from your devices that set them apart from competitors. It's as if you're slowly taking all the worst part from Apple. First was the Mico SD Card support and included power adapter. Now you're working on stripping away basic customization capabilities. 
And, no, adding them back in via GoodLock is not a valid solution!
 
Also, when are you going to make Dismiss Alerts From All Devices feature actually work?

Every morning when I turn on my Z Fold3, I always get 3 calendar notifications for the event that morning (which have already passed and are already dismissed on my Z Flip5 by the time I turn on my Z Fold3)
Is this feature only supposed to work when each device is simultaneously turned on? If so, change it so that other devices will check notifications cleared upon booting up (Knox already checks the Boot Loader. I'd bet you could easily make the devices check for shared notifications?)
You really need to refine the consistency of features and settings across your devices so they work seamlessly together. In all scenarios. Phone to tablet, one phone to another, one tablet to another, etc. Think of all possibilities.

Thank you! I appreciate that. I assumed that when I used SmartSwitch across devices, that setting would have transferred as well. (Unless One UI 6.1 toggled that switch)
Samsung needs to stop hiding useful features behind "advanced features" or "Labs." Simply keep the relative features in the relative settings menus. 🙄😮💨

Yeah, that's a new setting in 6.1 which has to be toggled on now whenever you use smartswitch it will copy over
