I would like to see a feature that shows the local time of the person I want to chat with, according to the location set in their Alibaba profile.
Many times I accidentally leave TM online on my work laptop at home and am woken up at 2-3-4am by sellers in China wanting to talk to me.
If sellers could see what the time was in my country it would make them more considerate and not wake me up at very early in the morning.
My idea would be that is it was between for example 6.30pm - 8.30am the seller would receive a pop up message telling the local time in my country and asking if they wanted to continue with the chat whenever they tried to start an instant message with me. Proceedure would be as follows:
1. Open TM
2. Find contact
3. Open message window
4. Receive popup saying "The local time in <NAME OF CONTACT HERE>'s country is currently XX.XXam/pm" Press OK to continue or cancel to close this message window"
5. If I think it is an acceptable local time I will click OK, if I think I will disturb the contact I will click cancel.
You will have a lot more happy users if you added this!
