TOPIC: New Instant Messenger: Status Update
Created by: SLSQuality
Original Starting post for this thread:
Dear Members,

Since the launch of the new SLS Instant Messaging (IM) System, the majority of members who have tried it have been able to successfully IM and Video IM with other members but we are aware that some members have experienced issues.

We are working on resolving outstanding issues as well as implementing critical features as quickly as possible.

*** Note: All status updates for the SLS IM system will be posted to this forum.

Our CustomerService and TechSupport team members will not be able to provide any additional information while the new IM system is being completed. ***

Please note the following information:

1. The new IM system allows initiating contact with Online and Offline members.

- If the member is ONLINE (bright Green button), they will receive an instant notification that someone would like to speak with them. There are currently 2 notifications - 1 in the main section of the SLS website and 1 at the top left next to the IM On or Off indicator.

- If the member is OFFLINE (light Yellow button), a message will be sent to them which is viewable on their IM log when they next log in.

2. Since the IM button is now displayed for both Online and Offline members, it’s possible that some members who have not responded when contacted were offline or away from their computer when the IM was initiated.

3. While it’s possible to have multiple IM conversations with different members at the same time, it’s only possible to Video IM (with your video camera) with one Profile or Member at a time.

4. If your device or platform doesn't support Flash, IM may not be fully functional at this time.

The following is the most recent status update for features being added:

Based on Planned Features as well as your feedback, the following features among others have been or are expected to be implemented soon.

1. Sound notification when a new IM request is received. Status: Currently being implemented.

2. The ability to visit and view the profile page for the member initiating the chat before Accepting or Declining the request. Status: Currently being implemented.

3. The ability for the IM window to Pop UP. Status: Currently being implemented.

Please note that right now you should be able to drag the Tab where the IM conversation is located outside of the main browser window so that the IM window is separate and can be resized independently. Simply click and hold the top of the Tab where "Video Chat" is displayed then drag it outside of the main window. The main browser window should not be maximized when doing this.

4. The IM window will indicate when the other member is typing. Status: Currently Available.

5. After sending a message, it will no longer be necessary to click within the entry box to send another message, the cursor will remain in place unless you click outside of the entry area. Status: Currently Available.

6. The ability to Enable or Disable the IM Log for your account. Status: Currently being implemented.

7. A Member Guide with instructions for using the new IM system will be made available. Status: Currently being implemented.

8. Paid members will be able to IM Free members. Status: Currently Available.

We’d like to thank all the members who’ve provided feedback to let us know that they’ve been able to successfully chat as well as those posting constructive feedback letting us know what issues they’re experiencing or which features they'd like to see added.

Thank you for your feedback and your patience as we work on completing the new SLS IM.

SwingLifeStyle Team

Instant messenger loads but doesn't send the message. Problem didn't start until the Radio thing was implemented. Really-- does anyone use it? How much longer is this going to last?

I keep my IM turned off at all times because I don't want people I don't know yet to send chat requests. It would be nice if we had the ability to Jane the IM set for Friends Only. Only those we have tagged as friends could see us on IM.

I haven't tried to send any messages today, so don't know if the issue continues. As for having to click in the box to respond to IMs....I'm using the latest IE and have tried Chrome with the same results. I've not tried Firefox....but, I'm not interested enough to download it and try. I guess I just assume that most people use IE. But, then again....I could be wrong in my assumption.

LnTnSacCa,

Are you still experiencing the issue "IM quits working. Messages won't send."?

Regarding the other issue, "still have to click in the box to type after each send or after each message is received". Some other members using IE11 have reported the same issue.

1. Are you using IE11?

2. Do you experience the same issue in Firefox or Chrome?

Thanks

Having issues last nite and today. IM quits working. Messages won't send. Also, still have to click in the box to type after each send or after each message is received. Been having that problem ever since the new IM came into being. I've already mentioned that problem before but there doesn't seem to be an answering fix.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and IM isn't showing when the other person is typing. Other than that, it seems to be working fine. Thanks!
