Suppress Growl Notifications depending on status

Reported by: hbridge Owned by: zacw
Milestone: Adium 1.3 Component: Adium Core
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: Growl notification customization status Cc:
Patch Status:


It would be great if you could either

1) Suppress Growl notifications when status is set to the "Do Not Disturb" state 2) Provide a checkbox under "Mute Sounds" for statuses that allows you to suppress Growl notifications

I love the notifications, but when I'm projecting on a screen in front of other people it can be slightly embarrassing when growl notifications popup with the contents of a message :) I realize I can just quit Adium, but I like to have it open so people can leave me message for later.

For the case of presentations, you can turn off Growl from its prefpane or status item, do the presentation, then turn it back on when you're done.

I would think boredzo's solution is the best, since you also don't want notifications from Transmission or Colloquy or whatever other application making use of Growl notifications interfering with your presentation...

Since that seems to be the optimal solution I doubt this feature is necessary...

Sorry for bringing that about again, but I think the checkbox "Suppress Growl" beside "Mute Sounds" is really necessary in the Status options.

The idea of a status is that not only does it tell the others about your presence, but also changes the level of awareness of the IM client for you. In some status, say, "Available", you'd like to see the Growl notifications. In some others, say, "Do not disturb", you don't want them (but still want perhaps some other notifications from other apps). And it would be nice to be able to change the status with a single option, not with added "go to system preferences" or (sic!) "use another event preset"

Please reopen this ticket.

Perhaps we should reconsider this: #8461

Setting to notification cleanup milestone.

One more vote for this feature -- it'd be a nice improvement and makes perfect sense to me.

I'd like to add this to statuses like sound muting.

I'd like to have this too, (growl and sounds). It'd also be nice to have a mute through the dock icon, so I can just mute the application instead of going through the prefs and turning the volume down.

(In [23275]) Adds a "Silence Growl" option to statuses. Fixes #7481. Also fixes a few alignment problems in the custom status window.
