Collapse Mode for Forums, Teams, and Chat notifications

Albert 2 years ago in Notifications • updated by Isaac Eiland-Hall 2 years ago 3

I have 30 Teams and a bunch of Users. So when I hear "bling!" notifying me I've got a new something, I have to scroll all the way down, and all the way back up to see what's been yellowed.


I'd like to collapse the categories and have only new (incoming) messages appear under the collapsed category.


In other words, if I'm running in "Collapse Mode" then I only see this in my sidebar:


OPEN FORUMS

PRIVATE TEAMS

DIRECT MESSAGES


Until... voila! A message comes in from Bobby, and the Marketing team posts something. Then I see:


OPEN FORUMS

PRIVATE TEAMS

Marketing Team

DIRECT MESSAGES

Bobby


So I click on Bobby's message, read it, and it "un-yellows" itself. Then I click on Marketing.


While I'm replying to Marketing, I see this (because I've already read Bobby's message)


OPEN FORUMS

PRIVATE TEAMS

Marketing Team

DIRECT MESSAGES


It disappeared again because I'm in Collapse Mode.

I find myself wishing this worked as a windowshade toggle, where I could press a button to view or hide the pinned teams/forums/DMS. While hidden, new messages popup as Albert has outlined.

Just to make sure this is considered: Right now, if you're on the "posts" tab of a team, if a new chat comes in - nothing turns yellow. Hopefully if this feature was implemented, even if you're on the "posts" tab, it'll still show up and turn yellow?", he said hopefully. :)
