Any Time frame for enabling guest chat? Its almost a daily question for me and is one of the main reasons why people won't use Lifesize Cloud for interactive Meetings/Classroom use.
We are in the process of making changes to our backend systems that are prerequisite requirements before we can expand chat functionality. This project is a large initiative so we do not have a date to share yet for guest chat.
Just being my regular negative nelly but this sounds eerily similar to two years worth of....”we can’t implement this major feature that everyone is asking for until we do this other behind the scenes backend stuff”. I know timelines are hard to predict but I really wish there was a clearly identifiable roadmap. I hate telling my users that the feature they are asking for should be available soon and then two years pass and it’s still not there.
I understand, but we are concentrating a great deal of effort on the changes that Josh mentioned here. It is our primary focus. Before, we were trying to get more parity and balancing feature releases with these efforts. Now, the focus is this architectural and structural change in the code. We know that the new architecture will actually provide a means to faster feature releases. So, when this is done, it opens the door for feature releases at speed while retaining stability, features including this one.
I get it, its just hard to get those people back after they have left Lifesize for other tools and bought into something else. It would be great to know when these changes are expected to be completed so we can get some clarity on when we can expect faster feature releases.
