Make visual indications of new messages more pronounced
The current indication for the Mac client is a hardly distinguishable blue dot for the team and a hardly distinguishable whiter color for the channel. It's nice and muted, but I had to really look hard before I found what to look for for unread messages. I suggest a slightly more pronounced way of indicating unread messages for teams and channels.
I found the feature that really addresses this: https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/13740840-add-badge-for-all-unread-non-mention-messages
Ah, it sometimes shows the unread message counts, and sometimes it doesn't.
I'll have to amend this with that I now also see a white round new message indicator. I'm not sure it was there to begin with, but even if it was, it again failed to attract my attention. The Mac dock shows a red icon with a message count, I expected red icons with message counts throughout to guide me where the messages are. Now that I know what to look for, I can obviously see where to go, but initially it is not at all obvious.
