In order for this to be useful and be functional within my workflow is if I got an alert that a message was posted. Can you add that functionality? Even if it's only an alert bubble added to the icon, that would be super helpful.
Many of the people that can be included in Conversations, the new feature to communicate to a team of people, may not be regular HootSuite users and may not always have the Hootsuite application open. It would be nice when a new comment is posted that all the members at least get an email or some notification that there is a new comment.
We need two types (at least)
One for conversations to show when a new comment arrives - if it was possible, it would be great if it also, on click, showed the stream and could be engaged with without returning to the Dashboard.
One that provides alerts when tweets are received - this needs to be customisable by the channels added. ie. just the mentions from this account, but the DM and mentions from this one etc... thinking check boxes to customise it...
There should definitely be some sort of notification when a new post goes up as I am not on that screen all the time to see the red bubble.
We’re happy to show off our new notifications for Conversations. When users post in a Conversation, the icon will show a red badge, as well as a shaking animation. When someone comments on a post that you’ve liked or commented on, a notification bubble will also pop up. Chrome users will be given the option for browser notifications even when the dashboard is not in focus. Try it out and let us know how you like it!
Email notifications are still to come. :)
Thank you for all of your feedback!!
Why can't you implement pop-up notifications on desktop?
I'm not getting any notification either. What we need is a sound, even the soft tone used in regular hootsuite streams for new tweets

How does this notification work? I can't seem to get a notification when a message is posted.

It would be good if, in pop out mode, the conversations window in the tasks bar would flash, as well as a notification sound and a brief pop up.

I agree. Without an alert feature that pops up outside the tool (probably via email, or maybe something in a user's system tray), I'm going to end up putting the same message into an email and sending it to my team, so I don't have a lot of motivation for using the message tool right now.
Either a push notice like on an iPhone or a customizable sound.
It would be helpful if you received a notification for new comments and not just new messages.
It needs to be outside of Hootsuite to be effective - an email would work if you have email notification switched on for example. But a 'ping' and/or pop up notification window would be best.
Definitely needed, without a notification this is a non starter when you have multiple tasks on the go.
