The PC-Topp Instant Messages are now easier to use and their functionality has been made more useful.
PC-Topp now allows targeted messages!
So far, messages could only be broadcast to all PC-Topp users. Now, you can send a message to one or several other users, or for example to a conversion machine.
On PC-Topp's Post a Message page, just select a recipient in the list of all PC-Topp users, type your message, and click send - the message appears instantly on the other user's PC-Topp screen.
To send a message to several users, press Shift while you click on further user names, the message will be sent to all users that you highlight that way. If you still want to send a broadcast message, select "all users" as recipient.
New Reply Function Allows Easy Conversations
When a message appears, clicking "Reply" opens a message form with the right recipient already selected, just type your reply and send your message.
System Messages Inform All Users of Incidents on the PC-Topp System
As before, the PC-Topp System itself will generate messages when it finds incidents that threaten the stability of the system. For example, when a user just turns off his PC without first exiting from PC-Topp or otherwise "kills" a PC-Topp program, a message is sent to everybody to make it easy to locate the culprit.
Don't Forget to Delete Messages
PC-Topp will show messages until you reply to them or delete them, so please click "Delete" after reading a message if it is of no further interest to you. This ensures that you will immediately notice when a new message appears on your screen.
