Better Group Message notification visual differentiation


(Joshua Rosenfeld) #1

Right now, when receiving notifications from mentions, there is not an immediate visual indicator as to whether it is a personal message or a group message.

You can mouse over the @ icon to see Mention or Group Mention, but that requires a mouse and direct interaction. Could something be done to the icon to show visually that one is a group mention?

Is fa-users used anywhere at the moment?
