Are you involved in Skype group chats that are distracting –

Postby michaelvk » Thu Mar 10, 2011 11:58 am

We use Skype extensively for inter-office communications and a colleague recently showed me how she could ignore the Skype group chats unless someone specifically typed her name (or other configured words). This is very useful if you want to ignore chats unless your name or other topics come up.

Here’s how it’s done:
1) Open a chat window (group chat or 1-on-1 chat)
2) Select the pull down menu: Conversation->Notification settings
3) Select the radio button “Notify me only if these words are mentioned” and type in some trigger words and phrases:
Hope this helps shield you from “noisy” group chats and you can get some work done.

BTW: there are some nice useful features under that “Conversation” pull down menu – why not try some out now
eg: Profile panel –> Set topic

I can't tell if this is spam or not.

If it is spam, it's quasi-helpful spam. I may end up using this. So good show, sir / madam / bot.
