colour of room bullet on startup of hipchat

Hi,

if HipChat is open and someone posts a new message to the room, the room bullet turns red, until I opened the room to read the message.

If I startup HipChat client the next day (desktop client on Ubuntu), it is not red though, even if there are new messages in the rooms. I have to click through every room in order to see, if there are new messages. This is annoying. Is there a way to change that behaviour?

Thanks in advance

Marc

There is not. The HipChat development team is planning on fixing the behavior and making it much more consistent. There are many many suggestions on their ideas page, you can view at https://help.hipchat.com/forums/138883-suggestions-ideas

Thanks for your answer Steven. Can you point me to the exact idea under your link above, so I can vote for it? The behavior of HipChat I described is really annoying and very much reduces the use of HipChat.

They really seem keen on re-working that system. This isn't the right one to vote for, but they say in it...

Their sole mission is to make sure you never miss a message again as you move between devices or come back to your app. (We’re also looking at ways to help you catch up on conversations that have happened while you were away.)

Thanks again, Steven. I just voted and left another comment. That's exactly the feature, we need.

What should I think about when migrating HipChat to Slack?

...from the beginning. We have built up a lot of content in HipChat, with it being a core tool in our distributed company model. While it is true that we didn’t need to move to Slack immediately, we felt it...
