Show inbox icon in top header (BB-8602)

Issue #6630 resolved
treecoder created an issue

This is not a bug per se -- but it's something that I desperately want.

I guess the Bitbucket "Inbox" is equivalent to Github notifications.

I want the inbox to show up very prominently on the "Blue bar" and NOT as a "menu item" (which it currently is). This is important because I don't want to have to remember to click the menu to know if there are any pending notifications -- I want notifications/messages to pop into my eye right away as soon as I log in.

This is what Github does -- I know you don't like hearing about your biggest rival -- but there are some things they do better -- and you can copy them (or may be implement them better).

    We don't mind hearing about the competition. It's what keeps us focused :)

    We don't currently have any plans to move that icon to the top header, as that space is already getting pretty cluttered. So if anything, we're more likely remove thing from it.

    Another reason for keeping it where it is now, is that a lot of users have email notifications enabled, which means that they get everything pushed to them.

    Is there a reason why you would not use email notifications?
