I think an optional sound alert might be a good option. I'll add that in as a feature request. As for the email notifications, I have to disagree that you might as well use email instead. The big difference is that a social notification replied to via email will be tied to structured objects in the system while the emails will likely be forgotten. Remember on email replies you can still use special operators like # and @ to link even more objects as needed.
Sound alert and Auto logon with Social
There are 2 items I like about using Skype better: sound and auto-signon upon startup. Most of the time, I'm working in word or excel so I only look at something social if I am alerted. I rely on the sound from Skype to ping me when I have something, as well as the highlighted icon on the task bar. Clarizen has no way outside of the browser (to my knowledge) to let me know that there is a post or chat that I need to take a look at. Sending me a email on every post is pointless because I might as well just use email instead of Clarizen social. The other item, that would be easier if it auto logged on upon start-up like Skype does. If I have to remember to go into Clarizen each time I want to use it, I'm not going to use it much. I more than likely close down my browser after each use and never just leave it open because it takes up too much real estate. Maybe like a pop-out social browser woudl be more effective. I know I can minimize my browser but then I end up having a browser window every time I search a new piece of information. So those are my 2 ideas. A way to visual/sound alert me that there is a post that needs my attention when I'm in a different program and a way to auto logon upon start-up instead of relying on my own-self to login each day.

Has there been any movement on some kind of alert for Clarizen social(post or chat)?
