There has been a need a few times to send out an IM to a 'Group' of users; a sort of fast blast... like a note to your facilities group that there is a leaking restroom or to the group of starving artist that there is left over bagels in the break room!

Please update us on this option. We rely on being able to IM small groups. It can be done in communicator only if you hold CTRL and select each member, but we should be able to right click on the contact group and lauch IM to all available IM users in the group. Huge feature that should be relatively simple to implement.

We've also been looking for the same thing. Staff were irritated at us when they had to start using communicator for instant messaging and lost the ability to create groups and IM them.

I am also curious about an update on instant messaging a group using the SA-100. Any update on that? Thanks.

Any update on this capability? We just started using your IM solution (love it!) and definitely need the ability to IM a group.
