We are working on a change to the systray icon to show new activity in a way other than a red dot only so it is differentiated from busy state. We’ll keep you posted. Thanks!Anonymous commented
You don't have this for all users. The red dot does not work if the Taskbar appearance (Taskbar properties) has the "Use small icons" option checked. With regular icon size I have observed the dot but the huge icons are too wasteful of space. I therefore have "small icons" set.
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
We have been iterating on different designs and are starting to test internally. I don’t have a timeframe but will keep you posted.
This feature request is still being reviewed. The team is working hard to make numerous changes with regards to notifications, but they haven’t forgotten about this item.
