yeah, this is somewhat easier when the transcript's saved to Notes, at least as long as the transcript doesn't span days.
01 Mar 2014Carl Tyler5446Sametime Alert with a placehoder for topic

It does that already. When you select the right click option "alert me when..." there is a field that says "Optional Note"
28 Feb 2014Mike Woolsey5040SameTime file based chat history viewer Notes

Heck, why not integrate a native editor for logs of all the Notes server types! Great idea.
18 Feb 2014Carl Tyler5446Replication and Sync Sametime contacts

This sounds like a fairly specific request for IBM. Blue pages in internal to IBM etc.

For most companies, this information is stored within the users vpuserinfo record on the server, with a local cache, it's possible in IBM you have a different setup where you don't use vpuserinfo.nsf and thereby require such an option. For most customers, this request isn't needed.

Please elaborate more on how you want this integration with Cisco to happen. I believe that there are options on how to do it from both side (IBM & Cisco)
24 Oct 2013Alexey Katyushyn3063Creation of Automatic Groups in Sametime based on domains

Easier to implement integration between DD and HR system such that for each organizational unit corresponded to the group.
This process will be controlled. And the results can be used in many different systems / applications.

Perhaps a more elegant solution is to take the information about the absence from mailbox Out Of Office.

Which DBs are included, are you are just implying Mail? I do like the screen shot; I might have demoted sans your helpful picture.

Indeed; trying to emulate personal conversation with technology can be actually counter productive as Bill points out.
15 Oct 2013Bill Malchisky9254"Seen" flag in SameTime chat

Instant messaging tools have long been irksome for me for day-to-day inter-office communication across team members and projects. Each tool has its place, but as IM threads are linear, trying to search for an items with a chat history with a colleague who is working multiple projects with you is quite arduous. Any immediate efficiency gained, is lost on the search and putting together a task history during dissection. Thus, I become cautious when one tool tries to retrofit features of another tool; you can end-up with an all-in one tool that does nothing well.

To that point, the e-mail receipt feature was not voluntary until recently, when you can now set how to respond to them. Recall Notes did that behind the scenes. Maybe a simple checkbox, that someone could check, but what is the real value there if they use it 10% of the time, or less? If you have a 1h thread, you would probably never use the seen button.

What is the real business issue you are trying to solve?
15 Oct 2013Mark Demicoli11797"Seen" flag in SameTime chat

How about a "seen" action next to a comment? This would be a voluntary action that would at least indicate to the sender of the comment that the reader intended them to know that the message had been acknowledged. This would mirror the memo receipt feature.

This might explain better what I meant by the Gateway Server...

Use Lotus Sametime Gateway to connect with any of the following gateways or communities:

Lotus Sametime communities deployed outside of your firewall
AOL Instant Messenger
Google Talk
Microsoft® Office Communications Server communities
Yahoo Messenger

{ Link }

The Gateway server provides the capability of presence and chat federation with remote Sametime communities, Microsoft Lync communities, XMPP-compliant communities, GoogleTalk and AOL.

Why not put a plug-in like Wildfire in to handle that? How do you handle the ST Gateway piece? You would need the GW for this, and have enhancements to the code to ensure encryption is maintained for the sites you seek. Which sites do you use? Social sites come and go... thinking a more lightweight solution would be better able to keep-up with the needs. Just a thought.
15 Oct 2013Bill Malchisky9254"Seen" flag in SameTime chat

Agree with Mark and Carl. The matter is only complicated with multiple ST clients, accessing the data and whether someone actually is looking at the client that the system would state was "seen" is far too complex and unreliable.

Example: people leave their embedded client logged-in at the office, go home, perhaps fire-up the mobile client, briefly, you send a message, person logs out of the mobile client, did they see the message? They show as here at the office now, but it is 10p in the evening, so are they travelling or really in the timezone you think and using a VPN to get to Notes, or the ST web client, or iNotes?

We have built this using the plugin architecture of Sametime. Employees can fill in the information via a simple website, and that information is visible to other users through their Sametime client.

Agree with Mark.
22 Sep 2013Carl Tyler5446Integrating the CISCO

Already possible with Cisco integration and ibm SUT. Your issue is how IBM has configured it within IBM.
22 Sep 2013Carl Tyler5446Sametime Offline Messages

Sametime advanced license offers this. So it's already there.
20 Sep 2013Mark Demicoli11797"Seen" flag in SameTime chat

Don't agree. There is no way a computer can tell if anyone has seen or appreciated or considered a comment, only that the relevant window has gotten focus, however, reporting 'seen' can mislead the sender. With email it's different because you have to physically click on an email to open it, so there is a conscious action.

This is definately an enchancement that would serve our company. To be able to put a status such as "on vacation till (date)" would be great.
