Hi fellows!!

Is it possible to create a chat room, or a meeting room, whatever, in Communicator 2005

I'm trying to keep a chat window with my friends for all day long, but it closes every 10 minutes....

I wanna keep this persistent for all time that members are logged in.

Thanks for any help!!!

Regards,
Marco

OK :-)

I'm currently looking into this question and will post as soon as I get some additional info.

Hi,

Per the Office Communicator team:

No. Persistent chat is not an option for OC 2005 or 2007.

Probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but at least it answers the question. :-)

The smile at the end certainly did not help unless you meant to use the sad face ---> :-( .... and had a typo. If it is not a typo, perhaps consider the "mood" of your audience first.

At this point, I will accept that it does not make sense to make the client "persistent" in context to what it is (an "Instant Messenging" medium not a "Chat Room") and to make it work otherwise should be something done outside the product's functionality albeit using the API's it has. In this case, it would be helpful to post some sort of "keep alive" code, perhaps something on a timer that updates one of the other fields and if updating any one of those are enough to keep it alive.

Even better would be a true "chat room" client perhaps leveraging Live Meeting Tech,

Apologies that my feeble attempt at "lightenening the mood" failed.

I passed on your follow up question regarding "keep alive" code to the Communicator team and received the following info:

We do not have anything like that right now in the product. Look for this in the future [with the recent purchase of Parlano].

There's a pretty good article on what the purchase of Parlano will add to the Unified Communications line-up at http://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/ p=6075.

All the best,
