Bubble DM conversations with new messages to the top?


#1

I suggest bubbling DMs with new messages to the top of the list - it took me a while to figure out where my new messages were here:

Or perhaps leave it where it is, but add a summary on the ‘Direct Messages’ group:

Doesn’t the Sidebar channel list mode setting Unread Rooms Mode do this already?


#3

Ah! Yes it does. Didn’t know where to look for it, thanks.


#4

Hehe, this was my first reflex, wanted to point that out, too!

We might should consider making this default. For me this is the very first thing I enable anytime I join a new Rocket.Chat server.

It would drive me mad to have to search through a list for unreads.

Yeah, true. The optically nice & structured menu might look good on mockups and stuff but doesn’t play well in real life from a pragmatic point of view. So changing the default is probably more intuitive.

Yeah, making this default would be good.
