Additional feedback (Thanks @girl_hasnogame for spotting this new bug!! @phantomlover1717 asked me to make a new post about it!)

@girl_hasnogamespotted the new item indicator dot at work places after the Quality of Life Update. I’m also seeing it for my storage at work places, but surprisingly, it only appears when there are items in the storage. I have three work places where there are no items in storage, and the red dot does not appear at those locations. 

 

The red dot appeared at the cafe, fashion studio, medical center, law center, science building, and business office. (Each work place has items in storage, such as boxes, but the items may not all appear in the photo).

The red dot did not appear for me at the wellness center, the restaurant, or the dance club, where I had no items in storage there.

I have a red dot issue in the fashion studio, see pictures. The inventory is empty. There are a couple of photography career items I cant’t buy yet, otherwise all items I can buy are on the floor.

This is the storage boxes that are randomly in workplaces when you start jobs, I have tried removing them from storage then restarting the game and putting them back to storage but the circle still appears. It’s the only item showing up this way for me. I had the same problem at home with the internet icon desk until the QoL update.
