I would find it very useful to be able to send images in Jabber group chat. Often we start group chats during conference calls and would like to discuss screenshots as a team to be able to bring this information up in our discussion during the WebEx. These are sidebar conversations, so using webex to share this content is not a viable solution.
Screen capture (images) and File sharing are not supported in Jabber Group chat sessions. This is working as designed and there is no definite roadmap for this feature to be implemented soon in future releases.
It maybe then 'working as designed' but it is not working as needed by users. I had been seriously considering making Jabber our 'corporate' standard chat vehicle, but without this basic feature that virtually all major chat programs support, cannot do so and will need to use some other vendor's product... which is a shame because a decent chunk of our user base already has Jabber installed for Presence and Soft-phone functionality,
With managed file transfer you can transfer files in groups
I'm a user of Jabber and we are using it as communication tool in the company, I'd like to know what you were thinking about how the tool can support the clients when you say "there is no definite roadmap for this feature to be implemented soon in future releases."
I'm not sure if you are the product owner of this tool, do you have any idea how difficult when you want to discribe something on your screen to someone else by words? Do you recommend me to write down hundreds of words instead of sending a screenshot to my colleagues?
I don't know how an application is designed in Cisco, but can you give it a minute to evaluate the value of the suggestion before you say NO?
Is this for file transfer? I was talking about if Jabber can support image. This is totally different, why cannot I use email to tranfer file but using an IM tool?
you can put screen captures in a group chat now, I don't know when it became available. In the bottom right of a group chat there is an icon like a square with a scissors. If you click that, it will give you a crosshairs like the windows Snipping Tool to allow you to select a section of the screen and put it in the chat window.
