Notification when someone comes online
Notifications for when your friends come online instead of constantly checking discord would be nice.
There should also be an option to only get notifications for certain friends or certain servers.
It would also be nice to set up the notification to let you know when someone starts playing a game.
This is the feature I want most. I came from Skype, and it's really annoying/cumbersome to have to manually scroll through my friends list every so often, just to see if someone came online.
This would be very useful for holding game sessions and to actively use role-play servers.
Need. Nao. Please.
Was looking for a setting for this, surprised to see it wasn't a thing yet.
I would love that.
I agree, Great idea.
Maybe also the option to say "Notify me when <so and so> comes online and is playing <such and such>"
So this is very similar to the steam system where it sends a mini pop up at the bottom right of your scree saying if someone came online and when they started playing game.
This would be amazing. Even better if you could tag specific people as "starred" or important like Battle.net favorites. I hate having to check just to see if someone I wanna game with is online every half an hour or so rather than just getting a pop-up "So-And-So has come online."

If you could make a box where it said "Notify me when this user gets online" for users on your friends list or in mutual servers, it would be great.
Please add this feature discord team.
I'd certainly love to know when someone comes online rather than checking every 30 minutes.
Defiantly! This would be so handy to have! Please make it happen!
Yes please make this happen. If people have privacy issues you can make this an opt-in/opt-out option. Especially for friends this will be very useful as you can see when an important person comes online and you can chat them up
I'd also like not to have to manually check 4 times per hour... I actually have friends who do not want to join me on discord and they'd rather stay on skype because they don't get a notification sound when a friend comes online.
I would love this! Maybe even on the iPhone because I play with people halfway around the world, and instead of staying up all night just set up a way to get a notification for certain people you choose, like my own alarm clock on the weekends!
I suggested this too just today, but I see someone already did it before me! Discord is already great, but if it had notifications when someone comes online it'd be absolutely perfect!
Should definitely be an option.
