How do I get set HipChat to send me notifications when specific users return from Away or Do Not Disturb?

As in, receive notifications similar to when my @ name is mentioned, but when User X changes from Do Not Disturb or Away to Available.

Surely there must be a way - this would be extremely useful and help improve my efficiency greatly. I can't be the first one to ask.

Hello Nicholas,
Here on this document you can check all the customisations for your hip chat, follow link below.
I'd recommend to create a Room for the people you need.

HipChat Settings

I hope this helps!


I have already perused all of the available basic customization options, which is why I'm posting here. smile

I was hoping there was some extra setting somewhere I was missing, or if there was a plugin or something that might do what I want. (I already looked through several pages of the plugins, so again your expertise is what I require here.)

Can you explain why creating a room as you said, would help? I don't believe I have this option but if it had useful possibilities regarding my question, I could let my supervisors know.


Nicholas, I tried to find some alternative for you but I ended up not finding something that suited your needs. But you can check some integrations for HipChat here:

Sorry for not being able to help.

About creating a room, it would make visually easier to track the contacts you need only, you still would have to check it manually.

Best Regards.
