  Here are the suggesstions on the improvement of chat plugin.... If I've missed something, please feel free to add it in.

 

Reference posts - Please add any comments on this page -: Post 1 , Post 2,

Chat History

  • An option to see the chat history for individuals ( already it is maintained in the database)
  • Ability for administrator to have functionality in the control panel to extract chat history
  • Provision for Delete option on chat history for individuals ( turn on/off by administrator) <-- I would change this so that the user can delete it from *their* view but it's still maintained and the admin or omni-admin can still extract it. 
  • Word filter that can be turned on (see below) 

 

Other Messengers

  •  Ability to configure and use other instant messenger accounts (MSN, Yahoo, Gmail, etc.) 
  • Ability to send and receive messages via SMS

 

Offline Messages

  • An option to send offline messages to the friends.(also a copy to be sent to mail)
  • This option must be enabled by the individual only whether he wants to accept offline messages from other friends (A permission like Accept Offline Messages) 

 

User Features

  • Provide a much better alert for new chats coming in, especially also when the window does not have the focus (chat requests are often missed by users)
  • Ability to log in in "stealth mode" so that you are invisible to other users
  • Ability to block other users selectively
  • Ability to report inappropriate messages to a designated moderator or administrator
  • Resizable message window
  • Able to send a "nudge" or "buzz"
  • Being Able to group my contacts and expand or contract groups

 

Admin Features

  • Ability to create multiuser chats 
  • Ability to broadcast to users via chat
  • Control panel customization of chat for CSS, images, etc.
  • Ability to supress links to the outside
  • Ability to configure the maximum displayed users and a scrollable window.

New chat alert notification improvements. It seems that not only focus is an issue but SSL encryption seems to interfere too.

Is there multi user chat portlet and chat with only particular group of people available.

I think we should watch to google waves capabilities. Well, actually, it's more than a Chat. But that way of communication is very, very powerfull and handy for business. I think of all the ping pong E-Mails at our company. I expect that every organisation has a need on such a "Chat"-System.

As my best knowlegge the current chat system is based on jabber. Google wave is - actually - based on that too. But one of the biggest issues i see is the complex userinterface. But with ALLOYUI LIFERAY provides a great upcomming UI Framework ...

Ability to integrate with a different xmpp chat server. This also ties in with the mutliple people in a chat room and the google wave ideas. I have noticed that we get a notification when a key is pressed, but not what the key is (null). So therefore it shows we are typing (but not as we type as in wave). Integration of a wave server and a portlet (or 5 :-)) to handle the functionality really would be an incredible feature.

Property to set so we can only chat with organization users. This already exists for communities, but it would be nice if this also exists for organizations.
