I understand that there might be organizations which have huge amounts of channels and and unread-count badge doesn't make a lot of sense.
Therefore I would suggest to have a setting that let's you choose whether this is a channel that you are actively following because there is important stuff that you want to get notified of going on, or whether it is just a channel you are reading along.
The current solution with the badge on the activity doesn't work because activities can be more than channel unreads AND if you mark a message as unread in the channel, you will not know by just looking at any icon (because of course the activity doesn't get unseen because of this)
Thank you for your continued feedback. As many people have pointed out, this is available on mobile today. Support for replying to a specific message is on the backlog for desktop. I’ll let you know when we have progress to share. Thanks.
