Social Communication in Office42
The internal instant messenger of Office42 delivers system notification and users can also chat through it. All instant messages are saved in a history and are indexed by the search function, so you’ll be able to find an old conversation in a few moments. The most recent messages appear at the top of the list.
On the messenger interface there is a search field where you can find contacts, with the most recent contacts displayed conveniently. There is also an availability indicator like in the case of the most known instant messaging programs. Busy or Available status can be indicated by choice. If you set your status to Busy, new messages wont pop up, but and indicator will still display the number of messages you haven’t read yet
You want to discuss a project or event with multiple colleagues? Just invite them for a Group Chat! Chat participants can be intranet or extranet users, and the chat thread itself can be named and saved in each user’s chat history.
