New Features in Version 19.8
Below is an overview of the latest feature introductions with version 19.8
Message Classification in 1-to-1 conversations
Message classification is the process of attaching classification markings to messages that are sent within the chat system. The markings presented with each message inform users about the sensitivity of information contained within a message, how it should be treated and who they may or may not share that information with.
Classification is powered by the classification engine which provisions users with classification markings by cross-referencing user attributes with markings defined in a schema. Users can then select from the available markings using the classification builder interface to assign classification markings to a message in MindLink Anywhere.
You can read the full blog about message classification here.
Mentions in IM and Multiparty conversations
User @mentions functionality has been added to both 1-2-1 IM conversations and Multiparty chat. When a user in the conversation is mentioned the message will populate their @My mentions filter.
Include recent senders and contacts in mentions search
Past behaviour required the member of a room to be online in order to show up in @mention search results.
To allow creation of a user @mention for a user who may not be available at the time, the search will now include members who have recently gone offline or recently sent messages into the room/conversation. Powerful for communication across time zones.
