Ai Agent how to output a message after each custom tool call

How can I update the chat output back to the user in the chat window when each tool has ran and info from the tool?

I want a bunch of custom tools to run in a sequence and I want to update the chat window with a status message so the user sees something is happening.

Hi @Splay

Thanks for posting here and welcome to the community! :cake:

Unfortunately, we currently do not support streaming of individual tool executions.
The user must wait for the full agent execution to see the output/intermediate steps.

However, let me turn this post into a feature request, so we will keep on our radar! :slight_smile:
