In Hip Chat I was able to configure notifications so that the icon in my toolbar changed only when a message was sent specifically to me, my name was mentioned or a @here/@all notification was used.
I can't find a similar option in Stride: I either don't get any notification at all in the Tool Bar or it tells me if there is an update in any of the groups I have open. As I am a member of a large number of groups I don't want to be disturbed every time a message comes in unless it is specifically of concern to me.
Is there any way to configure this in Stride?
How are you?
Can you confirm if you are using the desktop client for Windows, Mac or Linux?
In each room you have open, click and choose one of the notification settings:
These settings apply to rooms you have open. If you close the room, we'll only notify you when someone mentions you directly.
Room notification settings are good across all your devices, so you just have to set them in one place.
I may have been a little premature in closing this question, as after making sure the rooms I was receiving notifications for were set to "Mentions", I'm still seeing a red dot appear against the Stride icon in my Tool Bar when there is any activity in the group.
With the setting at the "Mentions" level I didn't expect to see any change to the Tool Bar icon for an update to a group unless my name is mentioned or someone uses @here/@all.
@Dave – Currently the red dot is not hideable in the standard options. We have heard this feedback (even from some of our own employee feedback) and we're weighing that work against other feedback.
One related option, even if it may not be great for all day use just to remove the dot, is to engage Focus Mode under the icon next to your presence at top of your chats list. While in focus mode, Stride will silence and hide interruptions (which includes the dot on the toolbar).
You can read more about Focus Mode in our documentation: https://confluence.atlassian.com/stride-documentation/set-your-availability-939921160.html
Please please please can you re-enable this setting. It's so frustrating to have a dot in the toolbar all the time. Similar to above I'm part of lots of rooms so effectively I constantly have a red dot there. It results in me missing messages where I'm mentioned.
Focus mode is not a good work around. I want to be told when a new message comes in and this completely defeats that goal.
