Resolved issues

  1. Fixed an issue where the active user count was displayed as zero despite having active users in the system. 
  2. Minor UI/UX enhancements
  3. We fixed an icon alignment issue reported on some mobile devices.
  4. Channels and direct messages column will show in collapsed and expandable mode.
