Chronological inbox

Postby NJLonghorn » 26 Jul 2018, 18:44

Hi all,

While we are talking about new features for the messages box, I'll throw another idea on the table.

As of now, in boxes contain all messages from a single sender, sorted chronologically. It would be nice to be able to see all messages received, sorted chronologically. After opening a message, the "next" and "previous" buttons would take you to the next message by anyone, instead of the next message by that sender. This would make it much easier to follow a multi-player thread, especially where some of the messages exclude some recipients, such that you can't just open the latest messages and read the entire thread bottom to top.

Even better would be a folder with all messages, both sent and received. I don't know how hard it would be to pull off, but that would sometimes be helpful.

Is it like the feature in the forums?

That would do!

Nice! Can't wait for that to go live. The other changes on your list sound good as well.

Now, we just need a feature that prevents me from checking messages too often when I'm at work.
