Disable G Suite Scripts e-mail notifications

Certain G Suite scripts send out e-mail notifications based on your predefined triggers. For example, there is the Gmail meter which uses the activityReport function to sent out e-mails to your Google address (Gmail or G Suite).

However, if you would like to stop receiving these e-mails, deleting that script is not enough. Because if you delete it, the script will keep running and might throw errors instead.

To solve this, there are two methods.

  1. Delete the script (most likely a spreadsheet, stored in your Google Drive folders) from the trash. This will permanently delete it and it will no longer sent e-mail notifications.
  2. Delete the trigger. Open any spreadsheet (or create a new blank one), choose Tools → Script Editor → Resources → All your triggers. Now delete the trigger that you no longer need.

That’s it, you should stop receiving these G Suite script notifications from apps-scripts-notifications@google.com, mailed by unified-notifications.bounces.google.com.

This was the (in Dutch) message I received daily:
