Hi, Part of my app is a chat/messaging module that enables users in the same account (it's a SaaS app where each customer might have multiple authenticated users in the same account) to 'chat' or message each other. Everything is good on it except I need to figure out how to show a popup notification to the user who a message is directed to, instantaneously, so they know they have one. I don't mean using the email or text message triggers (already have that enabled) but showing a small 'you have a new message' message in the lower right of the web page the app is hosted on. I've used sliding panels, fancybox, and straight popups in other areas so I imagine I can configure one of those methods to show the notification and new message content. The problem I'm having is, how do you trigger a function to open a notification popup/panel in another user's account, on a different computer entirely? So when User1 submits a new message directed to User2, User2 will get an instant notification in their own browser? I imagine it's some sort of listener setup but don't really know how it would work. If anyone has any suggestions that'd be great!
Hey, I tried searching the forum but can't seem to find the topic I am looking for. I am running into a bit of a confusing spot, hopefully you all can help. I have 3 levels of registered users (ranked from "highest" to lowest) -Admin -Business -General I am trying to build a messaging system (I watched the classifieds tutorial that touches on this...still a little confused) that allows -General users to message -Business users, and have it show up on a report datapage (on the backend of the -business users profile page). It is working now so that when you click "contact" it automatically loads the business' User ID into the submission data, however I can't seem to figure out how to make it work so that it automatically loads the actual sender's ID (the -General user) and implements that into the submission form as well. Is this possible? If more details are needed please ask, I can tell you how I have the tables set up!! Thanks for any help!!
