To quickly see messages and activities of the highest priority, use Notifications. Your Inbox is a single location where you can track, view, prioritize, and manage conversations that are most relevant to you. Inbox automatically aggregates @mentions, group announcements, conversations, followed messages, and private messages so you can prioritize responses. In your Inbox, relevant conversations are organized into two sections, Unread messages and Read messages. Unread messages appear at the top of your Inbox or in a white background so it’s easy to stay up-to-date. You can also mark read messages and announcements as unread to follow up with them later. Messages in the Inbox are considered high priority because you posted them, were @mentioned from them, replied to them, or followed them. Conveniently, you can also send new private messages, reply to conversations, or post an update to a group.
