Tips: Other ways to mark a conversation as read or unread include:

  • At the top of a DM or space, click the conversation name and then Mark as read or Mark as unread.
  • For individual messages in a conversation, point to the message and then click More actions and then Mark as unread. This adds an 'Unread' line above the message in the conversation.
