#3590 closed enhancement (fixed)

Disable event alerts for individual contacts or groups

Description

It would be very useful if there was an easy way to disable event alerts for certain users. As it stands, it's only possible to set general alerts for all users, and individual alerts that activate *in addition to* the general alerts. I.e. if you have a general Growl alert for the "Contact Signs On" event, and an individual sound alert for when a specific user signs on, both the Growl and the sound alerts will trigger when he comes on.

However when you want to *ignore* all notifications from a certain user, there is no easy way to do so unless you disable the general alerts and set individual alerts for everybody except the one you want to ignore, which is a huge hassle if you have a large list.

I think it would be logical to have a tickbox in the user's Get Info window that disables general alerts for that particular user. When that option is selected the individual alerts for that user would trigger *instead* of the general alerts, as opposed to *along with*.

Per #757 which was duped to this, I'd like to be able to apply this to groups as well as just individual contacts, with a sort of inheritance hierarchy. I actually had a suggestion for a more flexible approach, though this is much more understandable to non computer geeks.

All the events tickets can be "handpicked" from "Good idea for 'later'".

If I understood it correctly, this could be implemented as a part of #10734 (i.e., a "contacts is not" or "contacts is not in group" conditional).

yelly, I think so, too. However, we don't know when Zac manages the rewrite, so in the meanwhile a "Do Nothing" event would probably be a good option for many people.

I think wixardy is working on this.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In a71c719e9271) Add a "Do Nothing" event. Technically a "do nothing further" event as it will keep the events that have already been added. Fixes #3590. I don't know if it will need a better name or description or implementation.
