Improve Visibility of New Posts
My list of Teams in the Favorites is growing very long. Sometimes I miss new posts where the team/channel/person is not mentioned, especially in teams that are beyond the bottom of the window (scrolling needed to see the bottom of the list) or where posts are within unfavorited channels. I'm now being forced to favorite all channels just to make sure I don't miss new posts, and that's making navigating around very cumbersome.
Setting channels to not be favorite trims the list so only high-activity channels are surfaced, but then when there is activity in slow channels, it's easy to miss as new posts are completely hidden.
Solutions may vary....maybe add a new grouping besides just "Favorites" for "New Posts" only? Or a left-sidebar shortcut to list new posts? There is definite room for improvement in this area.

I might suggest functionality along the lines of Outlook, where I can set it up so that I need to manually (through a right-click) mark something as read. This way I can read them as I can, without worrying about touching something and having it "de-bold" and thereby escape my seeing it
