Show new message badge

I would like to show a “badge” when the logged in user has a new message. This badge would be on the home screen.

I tried creating a list of conversations within the badge (to get current conversation) but the list doesn’t work.

Any help would be great.


You’re going to have to use the visibility rule that either displays the Badge or not, based on the quantity of messages that the logged in user has not read.

This will require you to either have a collection of read receipts. check out this video (No-Code Chat Tutorial - YouTube)

You will be able to filter to get the badge, if you use the same methods. (It doesn’t exactly show your use case in the video but can be helpful) Ultimate guide on how to create a CHAT feature in Adalo (Text, Images, Chatrooms, like WhatsApp) - YouTube
