Sometimes We are away from keyboard while logged on Open Study. How about we get some sound alert if we get a message or notification. What do you guys think about this?

    I've suggested this idea previously. It's not in hot demand right now, so we haven't done much with it. But we *may* do something like that in the future. However, it is worth noting that most websites only do sounds for chats. So, it may confuse newer users.

    And also sometimes I like to pretend I'm away from my keyboard so getting sounds will be annoying. It would be great if something like this happened that we can turn the sounds off.

    Yeah, if we implement this it'd definitely be optional.

    I keep openstudy open and browse other tabs. That's why I'd like to hear a notification sound.

    Well, if you use Chrome or Firefox, the OpenStudy logo will change orange for you when you have notifications. :)

    No, that's because when you arrived on site you had a notification and safari doesn't let us change it after the page is loaded. :(

    It turns orange for me in firefox. I am happy for it to stay that way. A notificatiuon would just get annoying if you get too many.
