We’re running a much older version of Openfire (Wildfire 3.1.1 – an upgrade as been on the agenda forever) and I’m hoping that either it or the upgrade can be configured to offer a “bullpen” chat, where people are auto-joined to the room on start-up, but can’t exit. If they close the window, it will re-open and display new messages as they’re sent, just as if they’d been send a new IM from an individual.
Is that possible? Openfire/Wildfire has been great for one-to-one communications, but the ability to “shout” to a group of people – even if they’ve closed the window for the room – would be another big step.
I’ve searched here and on Google and haven’t found anything. Thanks.
