Community Of Interest
1 to 1 discussions are done in communities where conversations are segregated based on relevant topics. Attributes are defined for users that control the communities in which they can communicate. Users that have multiple communities in common are able to have simultaneous conversations .When users do not share communities they will be unable to communicate in IM conversations.
When in the web client, the available communties will appear as tabs when an IM conversaiton has been opened. The all communites tab will show messages from all of the users available communites, with a banner that seperates the messages based on the community they were sent from. When no community is selected no messages can be sent, and when a community is set, only messages in that community are displayed.
When communities are enabled, archiving messages groups messages by community and archives them as separate threads
