I'm wondering if there is anything similar to the "no hello" rule, but regarding "you're welcome" messages in the end of a chat conversation. ("No hello" rule says that one shouldn't just send "hello" in the chat and wait for a reply, instead one should write their question in the same message. Check nohello.com for more info.)
colleague: Hi Alice! My X returns this error, how can I fix it?
me (1h later): Ah, that's simple, you just need to do Y and then Z.
colleague (1h later): Thanks a lot, it worked!
me (1h later): You're welcome!
I'm not sure if I should reply with "you're welcome" in situations like that, because it might just interrupt or distract the colleague. I mean, the colleague would notice a new chat notification, stop whatever they are doing and check the chat just to see "you're welcome".
I want to be polite, but I also don't want to send messages that contain no useful information. Especially if I reply only several hours later. On the other hand, a message with "hello" only is much worse, because it makes the other person wait for the rest (e.g. a question), while "you're welcome" clearly indicates the end of the conversation.
Is "no hello" rule also applicable to "you're welcome" messages?
