    It would be nice to have a different colour other than yellow not quickly see someone outside the company is replying to this ticket as it is confusing for the agents if has the same colour as an internal private note .

    Our team has made a similar request, in that they would like to see Side Conversations depicted as a different color.    Currently, these are the same color as internal comments and it can be challenging to distinguish these.

    The yellow color also causes confusion because it makes the third party message appear as only an Internal Note. In other words, the agent isn't sure if the third party message was received by all or if it is just an internal note. 

    Internal notes and third party replies should not be the same color.

    It would be great if we differentiate between User and Agent update. Very useful for Agents to easy identification.
