Currently i am in 6 workspaces (after i signed out of 3-4, so i was in about 10 workspaces). mainly developer workspaces like symfony, codeception, ...) with lots of channels with lots of message traffic.

so my slack tray icon has a blue dot all the time and my workspace logos have a gray dot most of the time. this is not helpful. this is annoying and stressful.
set the notification to "nothing" or "direct messages, mentions & keywords" does not change anything. the only way i can get rid of it is to mute all channels in the workspace (which is cumbersome, no mute-all, no general preferences, no default notification settings for new channels,...).

but i want to see bold channel name, just to see oh i should have a look into this channel again but without the force the blue dot in the tray or the grey dot on my workspace icon emits.

even Benjamin tried it https://beberlei.de/2017/07/29/hide_slack_unread_and_highlight_tray_icon_on_ubuntu_linux.html
please add more settings/options for the notification and allow us to disable all notifications and display dots from non-direct message.
thanks
