This addon is designed to maximize the player's productivity or multitasking ability. When activated, the addon will monitor any or all the following in-game events depending on your configuration:
- Ready check
- LFG queue
- Battleground/Arena queue
- Group invite
- Summon request
- Blizzard GM contacts
- Resurrection requests
- Role checks, both for raids and when somebody attempts to queue for a dungeon (separate options).
- Wintergrasp/Tol Barad invite
When these events are fired in game, the addon will temporarily enable all sound options and play a raid warning sound, so you don't miss out even when the game is minimized.
The addon can be activated and customized using the minimap button:
- Left-click icon to toggle on/off.
- Shift+Left-click to move the icon around the map border.
- Right-click to open context menu.
- Left-click an option in the context menu to enable or disable it.
By default, the addon will mute all sounds in game when activated, and will automatically deactivate after the first event is detected. The addon can be configured via a number of options to not disable after detecting an event, to not mute sound while it's active, or to enable itself automatically. A slash command interface (/en) is also available for users who wish to program the functionality of this addon into their own macros.

This is my first addon project. Please feel free to try the addon. Feedback is always welcome, especially if you'd like to suggest more use cases and events for this addon to monitor.
