This shows up constantly in chats at the bottom. Can we turn this off? Its annoying that it shows up ALL DAY.

As Adam mentioned, this is an indicator that the user has configured an OOO reply. You will continue seeing it for as long as the OOO is active, no matter how many times you press the little x button to close it. I know, it annoys me too, but in all fairness the Outlook client has the same behavior :)

@Greg707 Agreed, it's ridiculous that this is the expected behavior.  We use a group chat all day and I don't need to be informed 98 times that my teammate is out of the office.  I was well aware of that after the 97th time...
