Really nice feature for people who tend to keep sounds and notifications ON by default. I tend to suggest the complete opposite to anyone joining Slack, but nevertheless, this is a nice addition to an already powerful app.
I wonder how many times this was requested as a feature for users who didn't want to turn off their notifications?
I'm surprised they did this before adding an away message. Still when you're away it looks like you're offline. It would be nice if it was a yellow dot and you were able to set a message.
Really great work from the folks at Slack. I love the way this was implemented! Perfect for those times when you want a block of focused, uninterrupted work.
Kudos to the people at Slack who made this happen. <3
