Suggestion for 2.7

May 2, 2011 at 5:36 PM

Someone else here has mentioned that they would like a message to pop up and steal focus to draw the persons attention. I sort of agree with your response that many would find that annoying, but in reality users do seem to be missing / ignoring messages, and if they have their sound muted as well, or away from their desk, there's no way they're going to reply! So...a suggestion...add a simple option for the taskbar pop-up to allow it stay on the screen until dismissed. Personally we would all find that extremely useful. Thanks.

Just downloaded and started to use squiggle , which has performed excellently.

 After talking through with people how it works all have commented on how they would like an option to have the chat messages pop up on the screen. They were concerned that they would miss messages. As JeremyWW has already highlighted.

  Another limitation has been that a number of our workstations have multiple screens but squiggle stops at the boundaries of the primary screens.

 Nothing really bad here, just would be a cool option if popups on messages could be designed to do a bit more. ie popup / popup and focus / popup and buzz/popup in taskbar untill clicked / ... i am sure there are many things that could be doen to let users know they have a message.

Yes i understand popups that steal focus can be annoying but if that could be a user setting then they have a choice...

Ok I hear you guys and be assured next version of Squiggle will have an option to steal the focus on message.

As far as multi monitor support is concerned; I've fixed the issue and it will be available in next version of Squiggle.
You should be able to drag the window to the next screen.
