It's getting close to the final release of Sametime 7.5. This weeks Sametime Sunday is about new and improved notification options in the client. Alerts are nothing new in Sametime, but there is more focus on setting up alerts as well as how users want to be notified. The Sametime 7.5 client has a new preference where you know have the ability to specify the notification window and make it as visual as you want.
Through the preferences, you also have the ability to specify event settings. It is now much easier to view how you want to be notified of events such as chats, invitations, announcements, phone conferences, etc. The notification options include bringing to front, flashing on the taskbar, and playing a sound of your choice.
