Cheese Boss / Panic Button :)

WARNING: This is like a credit card company giving someone more credit when they are struggling to pay their bill.

I am wondering if a "Boss/Panic Button" is worth putting on the board, what it will be is a button near to the "edit post" button that when clicked, it will instantly take you to another url of your choice. (Preset by you)

The scenario is: The boss is out the room, yet he comes back in quickly and is about to catch you online AGAIN All you do is line up your mouse with the button and click it whilst turning to make eye contact, by the time he arrives, he can see that you are busy checking the profit and loss still

Helpful or not?

If helpful we will consider adding for you.

Ian

Re: Boss / Panic Button :)

I am my own boss and if I catch myself playing on here I simply chastise myself in the appropriate manner and carry on regardless

Good idea...sometimes the ''Boss buttons'' link to a spurious Excel spreadsheet.

I only ever come onto AO at lunchtime now though, i'm a good lad

Sometimes I wish I had a job, but I'm not that bothered either.
I did ask once, if I did twice as much of nothing would the government pay me twice as much.

I just use the little red or amber buttons at the top left hand corner

However - I can see it will be a benefit to some

Re: Boss / Panic Button :)

I just got a new Microsoft Mouse on my work PC, a click of a side button instantly minimizes the screen - and with Firefox I have an add-on which minimizes it to an icon next to the clock instead of the taskbar - cheeky but sometimes its handy

Re: Boss / Panic Button :)

I vote YES.....

*Senior Management* is always complaining.... "are you still on there "


....






actually she has never complained because I can speak with authority about all AR "issues"




But I'm sure a lot of people would find it very useful
