ER - Enhanced alliance sitrep
I would like to have a checkbox where the system will say "alert my allies" when I do certain options:

- bid on a leader (tell them how much I bid)
- change research focus (tell them what I'm researching and optionally ETA based on current production of RP)

These are two areas where I spend a lot of time in chat and having it automated would make it feel like allies were in the loop instead of needing an out-of-band chat each turn. If an ally wants me to stop, they could message me, but most of the time knowing what your ally is researching makes diplomacy much more effective.

An alternative would be to integrate ally information in my display, but I could see that causing scaling issues where the sit rep (and possiblity of seeing sitrep history) would neatly solve this dilemma for me, but better than in chat.

I suppose the system could add chat entries programatically, and that would be fine too.
