Increase team sidebar width


#1

Is there a way to increase the width of the team sidebar?
I run Mattermost 4.8 but when having multiple teams it is very difficult to easily browse through the sidebar column to find a team.

Hi @bjla, there are no options to increase the sidebar width. However, in v4.9, shipping on April 16th, we are releasing a feature that allows Team Admins to set a team icon that will appear in the sidebar for all users of that team. This should help with navigating the sidebar if you have many teams.

The possibility to add icon image solves the problem for a few teams but most teams don´t have a natural icon to use…

It is almost impossible to see which square is which without hovering over them with the mouse and wait for the popup text.
If it is very difficult to accomplish this the second best would be to have a drop-down list with the team names, as they are seen in the android app.

Where can I add this as a feature requests?
