How can I disable notifications from iOS "Automation" "shortcuts"?

Is there a way to disable (or manage at all) notifications from my shortcuts? I have "Automation" shortcuts which turn on the phone screen and I really don't need or want notifications for.

You cannot. Apple has not added that functionality (yet) as of iOS 14.

Even if you go into Settings » Notifications, there are no Notification settings for Shortcuts.


There is a way but it requires Screen Time to be enabled.

You need to go to SettingsScreen Time, search for See All Activity, scroll down to Notification section (it’s shown only when you got 1 or more notifications from shortcuts after enabling Screen Time), and there you can manage shortcuts notification permissions, style, etc.
