I want to extend on this idea: https://help.workspace.ibm.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115006021847-Out-of-Office-notification
From a user perspective, workspace is just one more place where I need to manage my online status. With each of them, the benefit of managing your status diminishes.
What we need to provide - in a world where everything is becoming an API - is one place where the user can potentially manage all his online stati and messages.
- events and actions ... event trigger actions
- plugin system ... developers can provide plugins for their system
- rules engine ...
- template ... e.g. "busness trip" "vacation" or "just busy"
This is an independent feature set, that can be implemented standalone. But within IBM I don't see a chance for a separate offering. In Workspace, there is currently work done in this area. So why not think big?
I believe IBM would benefit strongly if we did some small things in the are of personal productivity.
