Customizable room notifications now in beta (boom)

HipChat per-room notifications

We think choice is a great thing. Like choosing breakfast for dinner, rocking a sweat suit at work, or even…(drumroll)…notifications in the HipChat rooms you want.

Today we’re releasing a beta version of per-room notifications in the HipChat web app. Turn down the volume in rooms that aren’t critical to you so you only get mentions. Or go nuts and turn up the volume in another room to get notifications for every message.

HipChat Per-Room Notifications

Now you can choose between loud (get notifications for every message), normal (get notifications for @all, @here, and @yourname), and quiet (just @yourname).

Not interested in customizing each of your rooms? Good news: These three options now exist at a global level too in your Settings, giving you more control than you had before. You can now prioritize the notifications that are the most important to you.

So go try it out! Log into our website with your HipChat credentials. Launch the web app, go to the room you want to adjust notifications for and click on the bell.

Customize to your heart’s content. All we ask is that you let us know what you think of the beta – especially any issues you run into.

Let us know in the comments below or through the web app (click the question mark in the top right corner > click Provide Feedback). Once it’s polished up, we’ll make sure it gets to the other apps.

Here’s to more effective team communication! And to letting you concentrate on what’s most important.
