    The new Microsoft Remote Desktop Beta for macOS has this and it's wonderful, but I use Jump. Would love to see this in jump.

    I just discovered Jump Desktop and am evaluating it.  I currently use Microsoft Remote Desktop for my RDP clients, and VNC Viewer for my VNC clients.

    it would be nice to be able to use a single client for both, and Jump's Fluid protocol also seems pretty cool.

    However I am already finding it quite annoying that the Jump client on macOS has no menu bar icon with a quick way to connect to any of my saved desktops.

    This may turn out to be a deal breaker in my switching to Jump, as 80% of my connects are to RDP clients and it's incredibly useful to always have the Microsoft Remote Desktop client in my menu, and to be able to find and open any client any time without needing to open or switch to a separate window - especially as I have a multi-monitor setup with 5 monitors.

    If Jump on macOS had a menu bar icon with the ability to look through the configured desktops and connect to any one, then switching to it would be a no-brainer for me.

    So: as others have asked, please do implement a macOS menu icon with the ability to browse, search and connect to any desktop.  

    Looking at the Microsoft Remote Desktop client will give a good idea of how to implement it well.

    Thanks in advance.
