  1. Different Notification Colours

    It would be nice if the "followed channel" notification was a different color than the "direct mention" indicator. since I can't tell the difference, i find myself heading over to teams just to see conversations that I'm probably not interested in, which ends up being bad context-switching for me

    I would like to gather some more feedback about this topic. I understand the request is for different colored notifications but I wanted to see about your feedback on the different icons.

    We currently have different icons depending on the activity you are being notified of.
    Such as a direct mention in a channel with have the “@” symbol, letting you know you were @ mentioned.
    A lightbulb icon lets you know about general activity within a channel you follow.
    A chatbox icon appears when channel is mentioned that you are part of.

    And so forth… do these icons help you understand the notifications or do you feel color differentiation is also required?

    Let me know in the comments of this topic thread. Thanks!

  2. scroll to zoom reversed

    Scrolling to zoom into an image is reversed to what it should be. This behavior is on both mouse wheels and on the magic trackpad for mac

    If you have experienced this could you please confirm in the topic comments if this is still happening for you?

    The zoom feature has been released on PC and I’m hoping it also resolved this odd experience but please let me know!
