Hi @jaller94 !

I believe it's working as expected. The option is being selected and the global settings gets open. Although the selected option it's not visible until you re-open the room settings.


As a user I don't expect a link to trigger a second action. The link is a component inside the label. Other applications like Firefox, Chromium and VS Code don't toggle checkboxes when you click on links like "Learn more" inside a label.


@jaller94 You know what, I read the expected behaviours in the opposite way. Now I know this is wrong and it's supposed to only open Global Notifications without selecting the option.

I would like to work on this one, could you please assign it to me?
