Notifications in current conversation


I send a message to someone or read a message from someone, then switch to another application - when they send me an answer, I do not get notified (but I do get notified in any other conversation).

Steps to reproduce

Mattermost 5.29.0
MacOS Catalina

Expected behavior

I would like to not miss messages. Perhaps there is a way to get notifications for the active conversation if the Mattermost window does not have focus. Or maybe if I don’t react to the message within X time? Any workable solution to the problem is fine.

Observed behavior

No behaviour observed, which is the problem - there should be some way to know a message has arrived.

What Mattermost desktop app version are you on?

Mattermost 5.29.0
MacOS Catalina

It might be, but I’m not locking the computer, so I’m not sure if it’s really the same…
