When a user goes to Special:Notifications it is no longer possible to see what items have been visited/clicked through to
|Open||None||T100528 Improve organization and control for Flow notifications (tracking + ideas)|
|Resolved||Catrope||T78363 Special:Notifications does not mirror the read/unread statuses from the echo flyout|
It doesn't say what kind of notifications you were testing with (mention, standard talk page (wikitext), Flow, etc.).
However, I tested with Flow locally, and while there is a difference, it's very subtle (basically, it colors the whole notification, and bolds the main part, whereas otherwise only part of the main part is bold). Compare "Hey admin" and "Logged in test" (the "Flow talk page manager" one is unrelated, and not currently applicable to user talk on production).
If this is what you're referring to, I agree the UX distinction may be too subtle. If it's something else, let us know too.
I'd recommend something that is visually similar for the flyout and the all
notification page (facebook does this) perhaps something Pau and think
about in a future sprint. The current color change is inconsistant and
perhaps too subtle to convey what's going on properly.

Presently the notification flyout and Special:Notificaitons page display messages status in the same way - the same background color:
Only two suggestions might be added
- instantaneous update on both Special:Notifications and the flyout when the status of messages is changed.
- cross-wiki notifications are not displayed on Special:Notifications page - will be addressed in other tasks.
