For any thread, if it has unread icon and draft exist , then icon should exist for both, so  that user can know that draft exist for thread without tapping on thread. For this we will need new UX.

I did some archeology, and found that the current behavior comes from bug 879143 comment 92.

Now, I'm perfectly fine with changing this :)
First we need to know Jenny's advice about this: do we need to have the 2 informations?

Then I think the solution would be a visual solution; I don't think we should have an additional column just for this rare case. I think we should have either a different (combined) icon for this case, or display drafts in a different way than what we do now. I don't really know except that I don't want an additional column ;)

yeah,instead of additional column, we can have a combined icon (both icon in vertical order ).

Hi Kumar,

I'm inclined not to show two icons at the same time, aside from the fact that it's visually not pleasing, I think showing the latest status is sufficient. Draft exists or not, if there's an unread message, it will serve the purpose of notifying user this message needs attention. Also, as user enters the thread with unread message (and existing draft), the previously typed message might need to be modified after reading the new message, that said, showing latest status (unread message) on inbox view is more important and quite enough.

Thanks!

Hey Julienw,
It will be great, if you get clear input from UI/UX and VD team on this.

Thanks

Summary: Draft icon and unread icon should exist together (if there exist any) → [Messages] Should Draft icon and unread icon exist together ? OR need of new visual design.
I gave another proposal in bug 1215655 comment 28. I think this could be a nice way to solve the conflict.
