Sametime Quick Tip: Controlling Notifications

Gaurav Chhabra asked:

"In Sametime 8.0, its very annoying when the chat window pops up in front of all the windows and that to when you are in the middle of some important assignment. I think there should be some option under preference\notifications that would allow the user to select the kind of notification required. Popup or flash title in titlebar..just like v7.5"

Thanks for the comment, Gaurav! There is a preferences setting to control exactly the behavior you are describing. Follow these steps:
  1. Open the Preferences Pane and select Notifications from the list on the left side of the window.
  2. On the right side, scroll through the list of events until you see "One-on-one chat." Click on it.
  3. Deselect the check box that says "Bring chat window to the front."
