Cisco Jabber: Communications Application - New Features
Persistent Chat Rooms
Once logged into Jabber, persistent Chat Rooms are available from the icons on the left side on the jabber main window. Persistent Chat Rooms allow users to have chat (IM) conversations with groups of other University staff members over a period of time, without the need for all participants to be logged into jabber for the full duration of the chat conversation.
This allows staff to drop in and out of conversations as often as they wish.
In addition members of staff can contribute to a number of different chat conversations at the same time and can even create their own discussion groups if they choose.
Use of Jabber and the persistent chat rooms feature are covered under the University's Acceptable Use Policy and other related policies.
