Are IMs during group meetings a possibility?

Post by Raina » Sat Nov 26, 2016 11:02 am

In a former version of our chatroom, we had the ability to send private messages to one another during a meeting. I have found this option to be very beneficial, in this group & others. It made a big difference when other members reached out to me that way, especially early on when I was really struggling. In addition to that instant, real-time encouragement, I think it also helps form longer term connections and relationships to one another. If the new chatroom has this capability, perhaps it could be reinstated.

This was not an option within the meeting room. Future releases might encompass it. If so, we would definitely do it.

We just installed a new release and it is quite a mess. John is working with vendor to resolve current issues.

Will keep the IM suggestion in mind if it becomes a possibility.

Awwww (((Diane))) I could hear the frustration in your post. Thank you so much for trying to work out this glitch--I know how much you & our tech are working on it. I'm praying this gets rectified, not so much for us trying to post, but for you to have some peace. Thank you so much Diane for what you do. This forum has saved me when I had to move quickly because of domestic violence, away from the f2f meetings I'd just gotten used to and familiar with. . Your forum has saved me in so very many ways.

Realized I was kind of away from the original topic. But for some reason it just came out.
