CMS Notification Work Around

I’m looking for some thoughts around a CMS notification hack - so to speak.
I have a Alert Collection in my CMS that will hold short messages, one way to access current alerts is via a ‘notification bell’ in the top nav. I’m trying to think of a CMS work around where I could toggle on or off a badge (colored dot, indicating a new alert) on the notification bell to draw attention to it?
I’m not interested in integrating a third party for automated push notifications.

Would love any thoughts on how this might be accomplished and/or if you’ve done it or seen it done on any public Webflow resources I could check out!

Welcome to the forum Kate.

It seems as easy as designing the bell with the red accent, then add a conditional visibility to the accent. Then when your list of alerts has elements, it shows up, if not, it doesn’t.
