I am currently testing the Spark client,soley for functionaly as we are looking for an immediate replacement for MSN. I have looked around and tested somethings in Spark but can’t seem to sort out some issues with groups and shared converstations…So please correct me if needed.
From what can gather MSN groups are Conferences in Spark.
Here is are some cases for how we use MSN…
I have a group for each department Support, Hardware, Admin,. Emergency… members can be in some or all these groups. The moment one member of the group posts into that group, all members are notified and can then comment as well.This does not seem to be the same for Conferences as members must first join the conference to see the chat activity within the group.
Is there group functionality in Spark like this?
I start a individual chat with one user. Over the course of the chat session we need to “invite” another user to our conversation. In MSN I could just click the invite icon and the other user woud be prompted to join the converstion.**
Can Spark do anything like this?
I have only been working with Spark for a couple days and so far I REALLY like what I see. I am sure I will have more questions but will start with these.
