Mark recent comments in task list

When someone comments on a task, I get notified. However, I'd like to see in the glance of an eye what tasks have updated comments. This can be done easily by highlighting the comment symbol for those tasks which got new comments after my last visit (last login, or last visit of a project - depending on what is logged in Todoist).

Hi Johan,

Thank you for the suggestion, we appreciate it. We will look into this in future updates.

Thank you! You might consider another option here. There are two types of notifications: comments and administrative signals (someone joined or left a project, etc.). For the latter the notification pop-up is just fine. With comments in fact you navigate through lists /tasks upon selection. So, you might consider to move these comment notification to the left navigation panel. Either the current navigation panel is listed or a list of recent comments. Selecting a comment shows the list / task for that comment (just like now). The difference is that it's much easier to browse through recent comments while they are in the left pane instead of bringing up the pop-up, which covers part of the screen. Also the user interface can be consistent between different platforms.
