Smilies and Windows flashing

Hi,

I am running Wildfire and Spark 1.0.2 right now. I have two “request” from the staffs so far, I am wondering if there is some setting and plugin I can get for these.

First, When a windows is minimized and someone sends a message, the windows would keep on flashing/blinking. Is there a way to tell Spark to flash only 5 times?

Second, is there a plugin I can get so people can click on a button and see all the available smily (like in MSN messenger)?

Thanks in advance,

John

Hi John,

For now, I can add an emoticon picker to Spark to “reveal” the supported emoticons. This will be in the 1.1 release. You can track it’'s progress here SPARK-144.

Thanks for the idea,

Derek

Thanks for your reply. It would be awesome to have the smilies intergrated (my employees here love to play with that, it’'s a great selling point for me to switch over to Jabber).

Is there no option for the blinking? Just wondering.

Thanks,

John

Hi John,

At this time, there is nothing planned for the blinking. Unless of course, there is more support around this feature, we will have to stay the course.

Cheers,

Derek

John,

What are your employees using before Jabber? What else is there that they see as “important”, besides the blinking?

Hi Derek,

I’'d also like the option to disable flashing in the taskbar. It really s**ks, especially if you have something very important to do.

Would you please create an issue one can vote for?

We are currently use MS Office Communicator. I am trying to switch everyone over to Jabber because OC is terrible in many aspects. For example, if people are responding to an email message, it would be nice to finish writing a thought before responding to the message and not have the blinking disturb the thought.

Hi John,

I’‘m glad you discovered WildFire and Spark. So I will be looking into some better notifications, but at the moment can make no promises until I am sure it’‘s possible. I’'ll keep you posted. Also, if there is anything else that we can do to make your “transition” possible, please feel free to contact me directly.

Cheers,

Derek

When can we expect the latest version?

I would also like to know if there would be any option to save conversations.

+1 to limiting blinking insanity

Thank you for your help

Hi Jeniffer,

the latest one was released three weeks ago

Somewhere I read 7th February for the next upcoming version, but I can’'t remember whether this was for date the server or client.

The chat logs are stored on Windows in the folder %USERPROFILE%\Spark\user\
