"Alert when available" Webex App

Similar to Jabber, add ability to be notified when a user becomes available in Webex App.

[Updated: PM Sara Santos updated description of the feature | Original request: Will this be available in Webex Teams or is it already? It's quite useful on Jabber to notify when a specific person becomes available.]

    "Alert When Available" is really helpful feature in Jabber. If incorporated in Webex App, it will help in migration to Webex App.

    please add this feature. It makes Webex more of a business tool. We don't need more emojis, gestures and car integrations. We need things like this.

    Bumping this thread. Are there any updates to the expected Beta and GA release for this feature? There was a parallel request that noted at one point this was planned to be released 1HCY2023.

    Hi Jason. Thanks for your comment. This feature is currently planned and on the roadmap. I will update AHA when I can provide Beta and planned GA release timing.

    We just switched from Jabber to WebEx and are disappointed that we don't have this feature. We would love to have this in WebEx!

    "Alert when available" is very important. Please restore this functionality in Webex chat.

    I agree this is a feature we use a lot in the Jabber client and one of the first spots when testing the Webex client.
