#7282 new feature request

Read receipt for private messages

Users feel the private messages component is outdated.

Read receipt is a standard nowadays for messaging systems. This is missing in the current version of BP messaging system, unlike other wp messaging plugins out there.

It would greatly improve experience of users being frustrated of not receiving a reply to their message and expecting read receipt as a standard feature.

Hi @maelga

Thanks for the feedback. I agree with you that the Private Messages component has parts that, functionality-wise, are outdated. I don't know if read receipts are one of those things. I think we'd want to review Messages holistically and decide what new features, like these, would fit into that.

I don't think this will move forward quickly (many months, at best), but we'll keep your suggestion around for when some group of people decide to try to tackle that problem.
