[jitsi-dev] Jitsi feature idea


#1

Our company is now using Jitsi as our inter-office messaging service. As a new user, I'd like to suggest a few feature ideas.

I am constantly speaking to multiple people each day. I see you have a search function to find a user, but it would be great if when typing to find someone, it doesn't exclude all others from the list so that I have to clear the search results. Instead, if I start typing it would be great if the user was just highlighted.

Second - I usually have a ton of IMs open every day as we have so much going on. It would be very useful to be able to vertically tile the IM tabs (instead of just horizontally). When the tabs are horizontal, I often lose sight of them to the left & right and miss messages.

Hey Whitney,

Sorry for the lag. Reply inline:

Our company is now using Jitsi as our inter-office messaging service. As
a new user, I'd like to suggest a few feature ideas.

I am constantly speaking to multiple people each day. I see you have a
search function to find a user, but it would be great if when typing to
find someone, it doesn't exclude all others from the list so that I have
to clear the search results. Instead, if I start typing it would be
great if the user was just highlighted.

Unfortunately, this would probably be inconvenient for people with
average or longer than average contact lists. For example, I have around
1500 entries in my roster, so just highlighting some of them would be of
little help.

Besides there are also results that we retrieve from external contact
sources such as LDAP, Outlook, Google Contacts, Address Book. All of
them just keep piling up results in the contact list so it is important
to get rid of anything that does not seem to match the search.

Second - I usually have a ton of IMs open every day as we have so much
going on. It would be very useful to be able to vertically tile the IM
tabs (instead of just horizontally). When the tabs are horizontal, I
often lose sight of them to the left & right and miss messages.

I see. Either that or we need to provide some other way of indicating
there are more unread messages. Could you please open a ticket in JIRA?

Thanks,
Emil
