Add timestamp & date stamp to notifications

It would be nice to see when I received party/game invites so I know when I see that I have notifications, some of which are invites, I know if they were sent a few minutes ago or if they're days old.

[Mod Edit: This idea was merged with a similar idea from Gonzo345. Thanks everyone!]

    Please clearly timestamp notifications, so there is no confusion caused at all and it is more streamlined for usage.

    Microsoft, i've been hoping through-out the updates that this would have been integrated into the system but it has not. hopefully I caught this before its too late to be added to the new system update. I strongly believe that it would be a great idea for you guys to add a TIME/DATE STAMP to notifications that popup on your notification feed. I'm aware that its not really necessary for achievements and messages, since messages do provide a time stamp. this is something that would be very effective for game, and party invites. there have been multiple times where i stepped away from my xbox or woke up to see notifications and had no idea when they were sent to me. due to this feature not being available I spent a lot of time trying to contact other gamers to see when exactly they tried to invite me. which is a complete hassle to deal with, and could be solved simply by adding a time stamp feature to notifications the way messages have time stamps. i know its a small feature, but its the small things that can set you apart from the competition. small things that are greatly convenient to the consumer.

    Brilliant idea. I can't tell you how many times I go out for a cigarette and come back to browse through invites and I have no clue which ones were recent and which ones I had from a day or more ago. If also like to be able to click on the damn person's profile from that invite as well so I can friend request, snoop, etc....

    I had the same idea I was gonna submit as feedback. I'm happy to see that we as gamers are on 1 accord with this idea. I just dislike the fact I have noties and I don't know how long ago they were sent. It feels like waste of time when you click on expired noties and nothing happens... Futhermore I think we should also have something that says expired notification for the noties.....

    Notifications should have a date visible on them like "player sent you a party invite 3 hours ago" the notification icons has a lot of space it should include a time when these notifications arrived

    Would make the notifications panel a lot more organised, as the user could see what time an invite was recieved.
    Also the option to delete notifications would be nice.
    Party and Game invites should automatically be deleted once the session is over.

    Add a small time stamp to notifications in the world tab such as party invites so that individuals would have an idea of when the notification was received and if the party invite is expired.

    This idea would be very helpful,... as You never know how long said item has been on your dashboard for

    Please put a time stamp on Notifications so we know how old the notification is eg: Game invites, Party Invites

    I agree. My box is always on but im not always sitting infront of it. It would be nice to know when i sit back down at the box, how long ago an invite was sent.

    Timestamp on game/party invites would be helpful in allowing recipient to know how long ago it was sent.

  • Skullzy Slice commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Just add a timestamp to invites in the Notification Center. Often times I see I have invites when I get online, but am unsure of if it was when I got on or if it was from a previous playing session. This would help so much.
