When viewing the Project Files in Buzzsaw, the column on the right labeled “Unread” will show you what type of items you have not viewed. If you see a V, there is a new version of the file available. If you see a D, there is a new discussion post that you have not read. If you see an R, there is a new redline (markup) waiting to be viewed.

Would it be possible to make this more user-friendly? New or "occassional" users do not know or remember its meaning. There are too much abbreviations nowadays and many users found it difficult to remember. The system shall be designed to cater for this as well, right?

I think it was just a question of available column
space.

How's about differentiate them by visual effects? e.g. if the message (document or form) has not been read, bold it (like new email shown in MS Outlook).

I like your suggestion, but I'm wondering: have you tried the "What's New" feature? This gives you a view of all documents added that you haven't read yet.
Thanks,

Yes we did. Many users found the user interface is not that user-friendly and that's why I made this suggestion. Also, we found some bugs in the What's New and they are reported to the Autodesk for follow up.
