Mark PMs as Unread?
« on: January 26, 2011, 08:03:41 PM »
Could we be able to mark PMs unread like we currently can mark threads?

I can't think of how many times I've scanned a PM, said to myself, "Oh, I'll reply later," and then it it's forgotten for days.   :'(  I wish I could treat them like I do thread replies and mark them as unread so I know I need to reply.  Is there any way we could make that happen?

Why don't you create a label, name it Pending or something like that and move your PMs that need a response into that label?  Labels function the same as folders in other PM systems.

*eyebrows lift*

Labels, you say?  I will need to investigate this when it is not my bedtime.  I'll will poke and prod and get back to you on how that works out.

Thanks!   ;D

Tis a great idea - labels rock!!! There's got to be a tutorial around. I'll PM you instructions. Otherwise, if you try on your own, it's really really really easy!

Fantastic!  I guess it's better to file the old stuff than make the new stuff look newer.   ::)

Thanks for the help, all!

I do the opposite of that and make sure all my read mail gets put into the labeled folders and leave the things I need to respond to in my inbox. If it isn't in my face I forget about it :P

Yeah, that's essentially the same system I've worked out.  I need the big red text blazing in my face to remind me.

Personally I delete the messages that I respond to. So, I know that when I have something at the top of the screen saying I have some, they are those I need to see to. ;)
