Status message

I am moving my department from Pidgin to Spark. One feature Pidgin has is when you change your status, you are prompted for a message to go with it. So if I changed my status to “Away”, I am prompted for a message and could say “at lunch”. The message displays with the status for all buddies to see. This is a heavily used feature in our department and I am hoping Spark can do it also but I am not finding the trick.

Thanks for the help.

Click the arrow by the user name and status --> Set status message

Thanks Jason. This is different that Pidgin and initially a little more clunky but maybe nicer in that the messages accumulate with the status and then become easy to pick.
