This small update of the IM server software improves Management Console that now displays appropriate icons in Presence Status view when users are in Away mode. Different icons are shown for Administrators, Power Users and regular user accounts.

Bopup Communication Server added bulk edit of user accounts

New version 4.3.14 of Bopup Communication Server has been recently released and it now supports modifying multiple user accounts simultaneously. It is possible to select several users accounts under Organizational Unit lists or in Find Users view then click Edit button on the toolbar or right-click and choose "Edit..." from the popup menu. Bulk edit of user accounts allow to change all fields except users' Organizational Unit and Contact Lists.

Another change in the console is regarding Password tab shown in the user's properties dialog box which has been removed. Functions to set and reset password are now available on the Authentication tab and activated if Private login/password mode is chosen.


Management Console also added new field called "Contact List status" in Organizational Units and Find Users lists that shows a locked status of user's contacts if that option is used. User's profile page also added a display of this value.

Build and change users' Contact Lists from the IM server

We are happy to inform that new version 4.3.12 of Bopup Communication Server has been released today. This version comes with a great function that allows to change and tune users' buddy lists from Management Console personally for each user. It is now possible to do from user's properties dialog.


The list of available users shown on the Contact List tab is based on user's Organizational Unit permissions, so it is possible to add/remove contacts that are only visible to the user. Please note that users with Administrator account type may see and select all users available of the IM system.

The new feature of the communication server would be useful when changing contacts are not permitted to users themselves from messaging clients through appropriate option on the Contact List tab in the options. In this case users can have custom buddy lists even they are all located in the same Organizational Unit and this would be a great addition to existing OU permissions functionality.

Bopup IM Server fixes check for user's permissions to exchange instant messages and files

We released a new version of Bopup Communication Server that fixes an issue with user's permissions to send messages and files. Version 4.3.9 now verifies each time when a user sends an instant message that message's recipient is available according to user's Organizational Unit permissions. This works well when a user organizes his contacts and unavailable accounts aren't shown in the wizard and cannot be added into Contact List in the messenger client. But the issue occurred only when a message is received from unavailable user and he is added into Not In Contacts list. In this case the users gets the right to reply back to that the sender and the communication server does not check the permissions. Now this issues is resolved.

The IM server enables the "Hide Organizational Units that are not available to users" option

New version of Bopup Communication Server is available for download. The version 4.1.7 implements the "Hide Organizational Units that are not available to users" on the Contact List tab of the Options dialog. That setting was added in a few releases ago but was not available for change and was grayed out. It enables a rebuild of Organizational Units structure in the user's Contact List shown in the messenger if some of units are not available due to user's Organizational Unit permissions. It can be important and useful to customers that want to hide and to do not show other units to users if they are not available.

The new version also fixes issue with disappearing users in the console if their parent Organizational Unit is moved.

It is easy to upgrade existing version of the server to the new one. Just launch a setup wizard of the new installation package to automatically upgrade the software to the latest version with keeping all application's settings and history.

Structured Contact Lists, instant update of IM client settings... Meet new versions of Bopup IM software!

We are happy to announce that new versions of Bopup IM software have been released. These major updates both of the communication server and instant messenger clients bring all-new and powerful functionality which makes our software more better, handy and useful.

What's new:

Structured Contact Lists

There was very annoying question in our software: plain Contact Lists in the messenger clients. Yes, it works fine if there is a little amount of users on the messaging network. But what's about if there is 50, 100 or more users?

New version 4.1.0 of Bopup Communication Server added a new option that allows to deliver structured, tree-based contacts to connected users. Now users can be shown under their Organizational Units like you they are shown in Management Console on the server.



Instant update of IM clients settings

Another important features is a delivery new and changed settings to the messenger clients without having to wait for a new release. Now client settings can be distributed to users "on-the fly" — on the next connection to the IM server. New versions of the messengers always check for updated settings once they establish a connect with the IM server and download a new set of options if it is available.


Setup.ini Configuration Tool is now a part of the IM server

Do you know about our Setup.ini Configuration Tool? Did you have a chance to use it? Forget about changing and modifying the setup.ini file youself to set the options for the messenger software. Because we built a great tool that let generate or edit existing configuration file through a graphic interface that is similar to the Options dialog of Bopup Messenger.


Now this configuration tool is included to the communication server package. And it is also integrated to server's interface when you create and change IM client settings. Just click to edit the settings and the tool automatically uploads them onto the server.


Multiple conversations are opened in cascade mode

Bopup Messenger added a useful functions that checks and opens multiple sending dialogs in a cascade mode. This prevents a newly opened window from overlapping existings.


Show branding logo in the main window of Bopup Observer

Bopup Observer now shows a branding logo uploaded on the IM server in it's main window too. We added a "Today's Messages" title too (like in Bopup Messenger client) to have a space to get branding logo visible.

The communication server improves selection in the Organizational Units trees

New version 3.3.25 of Bopup Communication Server comes with a little but useful improvement. It adds a function called "Invert selection" that appears in the "OU Permissions" dialog to manage visible Organizational Units to a specific unit. The same button is added on the "Accessibility Options" tab of the Messaging Group properties.

This function inverts currently selected Organizational Units in the tree: checked boxes become unchecked, and vise versa, unchecked units are reverted to a checked state. The new function helps administrators and managers to select required Organizational Units with ease and more quickly.
