Adding a Broadcast message.
Helpful option to have in case we have an issue thats effecting the team, we can send a broadcast via IM
yes, we want this too.
The ability to send a text message (IM) to *everyone* currently in the building would be excellent.
The location can be calculated by IP address, which S4B can already do (that's how it shows location).
A broadcast message to everyone at this location would do it.
We need something like this for emergency warnings and alerts.
There is an option to send a message to a group. Also the groups can be predefined by distribution lists. The problem I see is that often group messages tend to either be blank to deliver or there is a considerable delay resulting in lost recipients.
We used to have Cisco WebEx in my office and this was an useful tool, i miss it
