How do I enable the chat option that shows the source of the messages?

There is an option that shows (for example) [T] [GBL] Player's name "20 orange dots NWT JQBL" in chat.  It indicates that the message is coming via team chat from Green BL.  An account on one of my computers shows this and another account on another computer does not. How do I enable this option?

I found my answer in a Reddit post from 2017. In the chat settings (the cog in the upper left corner of the chat window) if one checks the box beside Show Channel Tag, this is enabled.

Was going to say that. You can also turn on a timestamp that will show to whatever time you set the game to - server or local. I have the time turned on as well so I can see when people actually typed something to see if I should respond or if it's been too long. I especially like watching for the person wanting help in LA in midst of chaotic chat and whisper them some help when there crafting or what not.

Don't mess with Mama Bear, I might hug you too tight. =D
