Need notification badge to show more than just unread emails

(Cody Kiker) #1

SUMMARY (your need in one sentence)

As a Station user, I need to see more than just unread email count on the Mac Station app icon.

GIVE US CONTEXT (tell us about the current experience)

When I get notifications in Stride or HipChat using their stand-alone apps, I get badges down below to remind me to check in there. I am missing chats directed at me because that’s missing from Station, causing me to want to go back to those stand alone apps.

PROVIDE DETAILS (tell us what you are looking to change)

I’d like the Station app to use the notification rules present in the chat apps to determine whether or not they add unread IM counts to the Station app icon.

DESCRIBE THE IMPACT (how would it change your experience)

The main advantages for me are: it would allow me to truly rely on Station as my one-stop productivity shop, not switch back and forth.

Fully agree. I get no notifications for google voice, or whatsapp. App is pretty much useless without it as it represents 2/4 apps that I would use it for.

I completely agree. This app has everything to be a world class app. Congrats to the team :+1:
However there are a few points that are still making me choose alternative apps. One them is the no badges to notify a new message (at least, Mac version 1.35.0). Just can’t work without it…
