If you haven’'t read my last post, I needed to write a plugin to disable private IMs for work. I have a simple plugin with no admin page or anything like that. What I am going to do is to expand on that and create a configurable disable IM plugin which can allow you to block certain users from using IM or you can block all users.
I saw someone posted a question on the Wildfire Support section of this forum. The person was wondering how he/she could prevent users from replying back to notices. Which could be a good addition to the plugin where an admin can send out system wide IMs with a “noreply” message type.
I want to know who would like to see this happen. I’'m sure a lot of companies would love this. It could be used to prevent abuse of the chat system.
Features that I will implement in this plugin:
Disable all IMs.
Disable IMs from select users/groups.
Disable IMs at certain time schedules.
No-reply IMs. (Could be used for Announcments).
You can request a feature that you would like to see and I will see if I can fit it in. The major focus currently will be on the 4 features listed above.
P.S., By IM I mean the “Message.Type.chat” type of messaging.
