Audio Alerts to ESRI Desktop and ArcPro

I would really LOVE to see an option to allow for a windows alert sound to turned on/off for those long waits between tasks. For times when #ArcPRO  or #ArcMap is not responding..... and the mouse is spinning... Or a large batch process was run... How great would it be to hear an alert to let the GIS professional know that the process is complete/map is ready to interact. 

I would love to see this for the following reasons:

  • Multi-tasker efficiency
  • Don't have time to waste on the job
  • Don't like watching & wating for the pot of water to boil
  • can focus on my planks and pushup while ArcPRO digests rather than sit in my chair
  • can work on multiple machines without check in on them as frequently


If anyone has a way to do this in Windows, please let me know.
