Broadcast Message

Version: 2.0 Keywords:


I would like to be able to send broadcast messages to all members of a group.

We use Jabber at work. I have groups set up based on the persons position (Supervisor, Manager, Employee, etc...). We do have a conference room set up that everyone can access, but I may need to send a broadcast message to only members of the supervisor group for example.

In Trillian, all I had to do was right click the group name in my buddy list and select "Send message to all." I've been looking for a feature like this in pidgin and have not been able to find it, although I admit that I only installed Pidgin for the first time yesterday, so I may just not know where to look.

There are plugins to do this. We don't do it in Pidgin proper because of concerns about spim.
