When I click the Inbox located in the Navbar, I'm presented with a short list of recent Private Conversations. I would like to be able to see who the recipient(s) are when I hover over the Private Conversation Title.
Most of the time this won't be an issue, but as we have some D&D games, Secret Santa, etc. it does come into play.If you go to /conversations/ to look at your PMs (for those unaware, PMs are referred to as conversations in xenforo) you do not get to see who you sent a message to, or who you got a message from if you started the conversation, and made the last response.
So if I start one with Dave, and he responds, then I respond, the conversation summary in
simply has my avatar, the subject, then my avatar again on the right as the last person who responded.
I get what they are trying to do - this is an extension of a forum topic, but with a limited set of participants, and it's neat, and a nice idea, and perhaps great for certain types of conversations.
If I send out 19 messages with the same subject (such as "Secret Santa Instructions") then I cannot tell who I sent a particular message to without clicking on it and reading the message.
So - please consider posting this to xenforo as a bug report - that the conversation summary should include a list of the people participating in the conversation, and if the list is more than a few people then they can do the "Dave, LittleSin, and 4 others..." trick they use elsewhere in the forum to shorten long lists.
For conversations between two people, both the subject and the other person involved should be immediately visible on the inbox summary.
Well... noSomething like... ?
Even though the "Participants: x" location is the most logical location for linking to the participant list, it's not really forthcoming. It would be just like the "Replies: x" field on forumdisplay in vBulletin. Not many users know you can click the reply count to get a complete list of users who have posted in that thread.If a popup implementation like this would be considered, then the popup should be triggered by the 'Participants: x' - field, that is more logical/consistent.
Understand the situation completely. I am quickly learning that descriptive titles make a huge amount of usability difference. In addition to this specific issue, it helps when the notification emails arrives, because that contains the title also....Almost every conversation has been started by me, last post by me, and some random title...
