From Tuesday 10th May 2022, Cisco Jabber will no longer support persistent chat rooms function. To support migration from Cisco Jabber to Microsoft Teams which will allow for a greater user experience with added functionality.
IT Services will be disabling the persistent chat rooms function within Cisco Jabber on Tuesday May 10th 2022. This change is to improve the use of Cisco Jabber to solely support telephony requirements and will affect all supported platforms: Windows, macOS, Android, iPhone/iPad. Please note that there is no possibility of archiving existing conversations from Cisco Jabber as the data is encrypted.
We recommend the use of Microsoft Teams to support group chat activity. Guidance on creating teams can be found on the University website following the link below:
