Is there a way to disable the "auto away" feature? Five minutes is too short of a time. My team uses Stride as a way to communicate and I need to be able to send them a message and they get a pop up to signal for them to maximize stride and communicate. But if they have been working on their daily tasks and have Stride behind the program they are working on, they are automatically put in an away status after 5 minutes so they don't get pop ups. This makes Stride pretty much obsolete.
We have the following Suggestion created to keep track of the request to have the ability of setting the idle time on Stride to avoid the status from changing automatically after the default 5 minutes of inactivity on the client:
We encourage you to visit the suggestion page linked above and click the Vote and Watch links near the top right to show support for the feature. By doing this, it will ensure you are proactively informed of progress and updates going forward.
Feel free to share your thoughts and additional suggestions (if any) by leaving a comment on the ticket as this helps us prioritize & understand the use case of the feature request. Hope that helps to clarify the behavior that you are seeing on Stride as of now.

Its like our attendance. And many times people won't chat us because they think we are actually not there. When we are.
So I either need to see this fixed so it functions more like hipchat's - and/or it can be disabled. Currently using:
StrideWeb Version 1.19.60Desktop Version 1.19.60
However it has been this way since we started using it. Its really one of the absolute worse parts of the tool and everyone complains about it constantly :(
All good things come to an end - thanks to all our customers and partners who have been along the Hipchat and Stride journey with us. As of Feb 15th 2019, Hipchat Cloud and Stride have reached ...
