Prevent Transcript Save disables Screen Capture as well

:Sametime / IM/Chat Client
: security, chattranscript, preventsave
J.R. Hughes193 - 20 2007 / (13)

Is there any way around being able to screen capture chats where the Prevent Transcript Save option has been enabled in 7.5.1? I recently had a user blast me out of my cubicle because said user disabled Transcript Saving in a chat with another user. Under the false impression that ...


Sametime IM and Gateway servers should be split off and simplified from the meeting server functions

:Sametime / Other
: sametime gateway chat im
Craig Wiseman24988 - 06 2010 / (11)
Obviously the impressive growth in functionality of the meeting server part of sametime in 8.5 is very cool. However, there's a concomitant huge increase in configuration & hardware requirements.
I'd like to see the chat & IM gateway portions split off and simplified so they could be deployed ...

Make it easy to add Images of Poeple

:Sametime / Contact Management
: sametime, contact
David Vasta2524 - 30 2007 / (10)
There should be an easy way for Admins and owners of the NAB to place images in the NAB so that they show up in Sametime.

"Seen" flag in SameTime chat

:Sametime / IM/Chat Client
: chat, seen, status
Zoltan Szabo4849 - 10 2013 / (6)
Hi All,
It would be great to see if the other party of a chat was seen you message. Sometimes you send a message and nothoing happens. If "seen" status will be introduced then you will see if something happening on the other side.
eg: Facebook does it

Offical server side chat logging in relational DB

:Sametime / Administration
: logging
Mario Costa4453 - 01 2007 / (6)
Create a mechanism to officially support server side chat logging that should be stored in a relational database. This is a major requirement for many companies and some of our biggest competitors have it.
I know we have a logging API, and I know Sametime comes with an example ...

Provide integration with Twitter in Sametime / Notes8 plug-in

:Sametime / Other
: sametime, twitter, integration
Stuart Mcintyre1684 - 19 2007 / (6)
More and more IBMers, partners and customers are becoming active on Twitter, especially with Chris Miller's great suggestion of using it to enable a stream of information from Lotusphere.  Twitter is proving to be a great way to keep up to date with contacts, to hear about the ...

ST8.5 Create windows services for Sametime

:Sametime / Installation
: sametime8.5, windows services
Vincent Pihouee404 - 29 2010 / (6)
Add automatically services after the install of ST 8.5 components on Windows plateform.
- You just finish to install your Sametime 8.5 do a reboot, and you have to figure out how to start manually your sametime because in fact it doesn't start automatically: 13 commands to start ...

IBM should provied an Open Space for all developers to share thier Sametime Plug-Ins with others

:Sametime / Other
: sametime, plug-in, plugin
David Vasta2524 - 30 2007 / (5)

Like Apple has space here you can share your open widgets I think IBM should have a web page here they share Sametime Plug-Ins. I would especially like for them to share the plug-ins they use to pitch Sametime with. While ...


Make the Gateway not to require DB2

:Sametime / Sametime Gateway
: db2
Hynek Kobelka7940 - 09 2007 / (4)
If you install the SameTime Gateway then you need to install a DB2 server as well, only so it can store the logs in there. This is something that a Domino database could do as well, or not ?
It would be great if the storage place would be ...

Sametime Chat Logging to a Domino NSF

:Sametime / Administration
: sametime, logging, nsf
Craig Wiseman24988 - 06 2007 / (4)
For many SMB shops, this would be spectacular option. A simple NSF with limited views and an archive and/or purge agent to keep it reasonably sized.
This does NOT eliminate an option to log to a relational DB. I understand that for large shops, this may not perform as ...

Sametime for PalmOS

:Sametime / Sametime Mobile
: palm, mobile, palmos
Craig Wiseman24988 - 06 2007 / (4)

There are literally boatloads of PalmOS Treos that can run the IBM microJVM and would love to be able to run Sametime. PalmOS rivals Windows Mobile in terms of deployed and active smartphones.

At lotusphere a few years ago, I went to a session where they used a Treo 600 ...


Allow Sametime business cards to pull all Lotus Connections information from Profiles natively without custom code

:Sametime / Administration
: sametime, connections, businesscard, integrate
Tim Brown1096 - 24 2009 / (4)
Make it possible natively to consume the Sametime business card data with information from the Lotus Connections profile database out of the box without having to do a custom blackbox or code customization? I was hoping for a easy way to do this via a wizard or something along those ...

Sametime Connect integration with Notes

:Sametime / Other
: sametime notes integration presence
Alexey Zimarev1051 - 15 2009 / (4)
It is very strange why Sametime Connect client has integration features for Outlook, Sharepoint and Office from Microsoft but very little possibilities with Notes. In addition a lot of people experience issues even using integrated client when Sametime is using LDAP as a directory. I think Sametime Connect client that ...

Connect to more than one Sametime server in Notes client

:Sametime / IM/Chat Client
: sametime, notes client
Karl-Henry Martinsson2136 - 14 2009 / (4)
Allow more than one Sametime server to be listed in the location document.
I might want to be connected to both the bleedyellow server and my company server.
Perhaps have some kind of icon/categorization that show what server a particular user is on.

Wish Sametime Chat was built into core Domino product

:Sametime / Other
: sametime, domino
Wayne Scarano223 - 09 2009 / (4)
 The meeting server has taken a new path and many of us have moved on to other products (gotomeeting, etc.).   However, integrated chat is considered mission critical and essential to any product in the Collaboration space (think Google Wave).  
So please either rewrite a simple chat for Domino ...

Schedule Sametime on and off

:Sametime / IM/Chat Client
: schedule
Craig Lordan123 - 25 2010 / (4)
Add a feature for the Sametime client that lets the user schedule when it starts/turns on, and more importantly, schedule when it shuts down/turns off.
For scheduling start up, the benefit would be to help ensure you activate Sametime in the morning, in case you forget to launch it. ...

Extend allow screen captures and images to the limited-use entitlement

:Sametime / IM/Chat Client
: sametime, limited-use
Matt Cook501 - 27 2010 / (4)
The Sametime limited-use entitlement for chat and presence awareness in Notes and webmail should include the ability to allow screen captures and images in the rich text.
Sametime Standard should not be required to get this functionality especially where web-conferencing, voice and video chat etc. are not needed.  This ...

Broadcasting in Sametime

:Sametime / Administration
: broadcasting, sametime, admin
Keith Brooks6439 - 01 2007 / (3)
Yes, this is part of the administrator options, BUT if I can not login to the %^E$ing machine how can I broadcast something?
There should be a way from the Domino Admin client or from the server console to Broadcast to Sametime users as well as Domino users.

Allow users to change their password through the sametime client

:Sametime / Other
: password
Carl Tyler5343 - 31 2007 / (3)
Most applications enable users to change their password if they login, not Sametime.  This should be an option in the Sametime client.
