[SOLVED] Indication for new message from another team

Hey there,
I search and couldn’t find an answer…
Is there a way to have a visual indication on the browser interface that one has a new message from another team? I spend most of my time with one team area displayed on my browser, but I need to switch to the team areas to check if there are messages from other teams. It’ll be nice if there’s an indication (i.e. a circle with the number of message in its center on the corner of that 3-dot vertical menu next to your name).

I’ll gladly add a suggestion to the design forum if it doesn’t exist.

Thanks!

Thanks @Limi for the suggestion!

We have an existing feature request here, which I encourage you to upvote and track its progress.

On a side note, we’re considering to add a “teams sidebar” for people who belong to multiple teams, so you can see notifications across multiple teams easier:

You may also consider using the Mattermost Desktop Apps, which supports connecting to different teams across multiple Mattermost servers from a single interface, and switch to them with shortcut keys.

Hi Jason,

Nice!
Thanks for the screenshot, it looks promising. I’ll go ahead and upvote in the existing feature request.

Cheers,
Limor
