What's wrong with jabber...

like

I hope not. I miss Lync as it is. Jabber is miserable but Skype is worse

I hated Skype when I went to industry. Messaging feature was awful and trying to do business meetings over it was miserable. Jabber sucks, but the webex feature works much better than Skypes meeting function in my opinion

It's amazing that a messaging app has so much downtime. I can't stand Skype, it's far worse in my experience.

I agree! I had it when I did a brief stint in industry and it was miserable more than I could have thought possible

Unlikely.

Well, it’s currently down which means I have no phone and no easy means of communication. And the cell phone service isn’t spectacular in our office so that’s not even an option I also hate that there is no save chat feature. Lync made it so easy to save chats that had instructions or to dos in them. Jabber just ends of getting copy and pasted into a sticky note

Fair point. Doesn’t make it any less annoying. I have approximately 30 sticky notes open at all times

Slack forever.

Skype is decent for chat, but awful for screen sharing, especially with clients as lost have trouble connecting

Ha ha

Jabber sucks too and so does our magic jack phones

At the end of the week I also end up with a bunch (50+) of open Outlook windows related to meeting invites. Basically, I look at my calendar, double click the invite then join the Zoom meeting. It takes me directly into the meeting and leaves the invite window open. Wash, rinse, repeat and by Friday there is literally one for every meeting I attended. Unfortunately, you can’t close them all together because it will ask you “Want to save your changes?” for every single one. Thoughts?

Hello folks. How are you doing? I was wondering what are some of the funniest Zoom backgrounds you've seen. There's gonna be a contest in my office and it appears there will be an actual gift. I like gifts. I'm thinking of putting this one and just not show my face for most of the meeting. Any input is appreciated.

After 3 months of having to use mobile Skype instead of desktop I can say the only good thing about it is I can ignore messages and people will just think it didn’t go through. Otherwise it’s garbage.

Do you think you qualify of life would be better at a firm that doesn’t use Skype/Teams, where it shows if and when you’re online? I think that is my biggest complaint about the firm I am at.
