[jitsi-dev] Inviting to conference from chat room


#1

Hi all,

I have feature request:

For me it is common to first invite the attendees to a chat room before
inviting them to the conference call.

When invoking the "Create conference call" menu action from within the
chat room at least my expectation would be that the attendees of the
chat are already selected in the "Invite contacts to call" frame.

However, this is currently not the case. Instead one would have to
manually (again) search and select all the contacts to be invited to the
call.

It would be very convenient if the attendees of the chat where already
pre-selected in the invitation frame, if possible, when invoking it from
within a chat room.

Alternatively, and less preferable would be to remove the action from
the chat window and let the user use the menu item in the main window
instead as it does not have anything to do with the current chat.

Also some other menu items are questionable like "Add new account..." -
that is not something you normally do from within a chat window. All
though it could be convenient to repeat menu items in all windows I
think it mostly confuses people as it does not have anything to do with
the context the user is in (ie. a chat).

Best regards,
Markus

Hey Markus,

(on your first point)

Yes, that sounds reasonable but we will likely revamp this entire area at some point and mimic the experience from Jitsi Meet.

That should make things much more logical
