How do you identify shared folders in the folder tree?
Idea shared by secretwep - 8/3/2015 at 1:47 PM
Under Consideration
In an older SmarterMail Ent. (v7.6 for me), the folders for "shared folders" use to look different (they had a grey folder icon).  Is CSS the only way to make them look differently?
 
For now, I'm using the following custom CSS for it:
 
ul.treemenu li[ttuid*="=sh"] {
  font-style: italic;
  background-color: #eeeef3;
}
 
Because I've assumed that the "sh" in the ttuid attribute stands for "shared".  I'm unable to change the color though.  Hmmm.

No. I'm still not sure how to change the color. It seems to get overridden.

The most recent version of SmarterMail is 14.3.
 
Only the current, and last two major versions are supported.  You will need to upgrade to the latest version of SmarterMail to take advantage of the latest CSS capabilities and customizations.

I use SmarterMail Enterprise 14. My reference to v7.6 was quite important to my post because it pointed out the fact that the shared folders used to look different in a prior version of SmarterMail. What I did not got across effectively, was that I really enjoyed having a different look to shared folders. It was a helpful visual clue for everyone in the enterprise.

The way CSS is used and applied between versions 14 and 7.6 is completely different, and your reference to 7.6 in your initial post, without reference to the fact that you were referencing the differences between 7.6 and 14.X was extremely misleading.
 
That is why I responded as I did.
 
If you would like to see this changed back, then you should have posted this as a SUGGESTION.  Posting a comment as a suggestion will allow other users to vote it up and, potentially, put it before developers for further consideration.

Yep. I absolutely should have mentioned the version I was currently using. I don't mind using the custom CSS, so I don't have an urge to post a suggestion about it bringing back the old way (which was icon based, I believe). Anyway, it would be nice to change the color of the folder text, and perhaps sometime in the future I will make a very specific request about it. For now, I'm content. Thanks for taking the time to respond Bruce.

secretwep, we are in the process of redesigning the web interface.  I will bring your suggestion of differentiating the look of shared folders in the development / design meeting for further discussion.  I am changing this from a Question to an Idea to facilitate development tracking.
