One of the new features in Vypress Messenger 2.8 is Shared Users Group Mapping. After previous versions of Vypress Messenger were released, we received several requests like the following:
We are a global company looking to implement a pop up messaging system. I have
downloaded a trial version of Messenger to try out.
I noticed there is a button in the address book called Map Network Users Group.
Does this allow all the people using Messenger to share a network based address book?
How does this function work, what are the names of the files that would have to be copied up to the server for it to work? I have not found any info regarding this in your help files.
The information below answers those issues and fills in the blanks in the documentation.
The Shared Users Group Mapping feature was designed to help Network Administrators keep common parts of the Address Book synchronized and available to all computers on the network. It allows the administrator to create an Address Book group once and then share it with all other VM (Vypress Messenger) users across the corporate network. You can store your Address Book group on a separate network path that you specify, and not allow the users on your network to modify this Address Book group.
The following steps briefly explain how to use the Map Network Users Group feature:
This network sharing technique is incredibly flexible and tremendously effective within virtually any network environment. However, for maximum flexibility, Vypress Messenger has another, more complex method to utilize network Address Books. We describe this other method in this Support Team document: TIP: The secret registry keys of Vypress Messenger. Please read this page and use this technique if the standard method is not acceptable for your corporate environment. Happy sharing!
