When do we get properly highlighted messages in Teamwork?

The message system in teamwork would be a good addition to internal project management but it's not possible to use since it shows no sign of activity. A colored highlight, a disturbing blinking or whatever that will caught the stressed Archicadder would do.

Yes, this is a really needed function to link the teamwork messages to the OS (WIN+Mac) notification system.
Because, at the moment, if you are not in AC, e.g. in a different app, you will not get noticed if someone sends a request.

The messages are so subtle you'll likely miss them even if you are working in the project. Lame!

not that it makes a difference, but I mark all messages and requests as "High Priority!"
At least that keeps the message up until it is closed or responded to.

there's also that easter egg trick, adding a could spaces after the message adds a megaphone to the message border for added emphasis:

another thing I've noticed that really confuses me; a LOT of my clients running t/w files do not have the t/w pallet in their w/e. I'll never understand it! it's the easiest way to see those messages!
it's like working on remodel projects but not having the reno pallet as part of your w/e! it's just nonsense! there is an economy of screen space, then there's just plain insanity
