This is an interesting idea, but we don’t plan on doing this anytime soon. We are only able to display a single badge count, and having a combination of ToDo and unread messages could lead to confusion. We may be able to revisit in the future. Thanks for your suggestion!

    Completely agree. Email App not showing unread email count is unconventional. I have to open app to see if there are any unread emails. Please fix it.

    It won't add confusion if you make it a config option and the user chooses that option!

    This option makes sense because a lot of people need to know when EITHER occurs: a new item comes in or an existing item becomes due.

    The app badge should indicate that there are items that require action, and for me that means having the option of showing the number of inbox items and the number of todo items. If the badge can optionally include the total inbox count (not just the unread count) that would be best.
