How to make unread answers more prominent

Hello here,

does anyone know of a way to make the newly received messages more prominent and pronounced?

The reason here is that my father has some issues in reading and quickly overreads new messages except for the very last one. I thought if it was ideally possible to put a e.g. reddish background to all new messages the same way as there is a tiny line with the text new message:


I am thinking if such a background as above with the last message could be added to all new messages.

Does anyone have an idea, if this is achievable using e.g. custom styling or if this would be a new feature?

Thanks a lot
Christian

Hi @christianlupus, this would probably be a feature request which you can share here: https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general.
