I see that this has been requested before, but those topics are locked. Not sure how I am supposed to show my support for a feature request if the threads are locked. 

 

This was always handy with WMC, when I open my server I am often curious if a recording is running so I can do things like reboot, or run a sync with snapraid.

 

Would be nice to see this feature added.

I think it's a great idea, although nowadays I think mobile device notifications would come first over this.

It shows up in the Server Dashboard.

It shows up in the Server Dashboard.

 

But sometimes you wanna just look over at your server, which might be doing more than just serving Emby, and see if its recording at a glance without having to go into the dashboard.

 

But don't think I can't/won't see a differing opinion, that's why I agree with Luke's statement, mobile device notifications DO overtake this. However still, if I miss the notification, a simple glance at the tray icon is useful, that's what its there for, to be useful.

Don't know if it is possible but maybe the Emby tray icon could change colors.

Mobile device notifications? No way, I don't want my phone telling me a show is recording, and opening the dashboard is much easier than looking for my phone while sitting at my PC. I don't understand how the two would be related. 

 

I now just go go the dashboard, but I agree with what was said above, I would rather just glance to the system tray.

These days I use the dashboard in the app in my phone more than on my PC.
