Send "group" private messages?

Message 1 of 4
(7,596 Views)

If I want to send a private message to several people on the forum, I need to go to each one individually and send the message.  Is there a way to send the same message to all those designated as friends, at one time?  Or to "group" friends and send a message to a group?  Can this be added?  Or is the potential for abuse too high?

The software doesn't currently have a feature to send to all in your friends' list.  However, you can still send to multiple recipients by separating usernames with a comma and manually typing them in.

 

I might submit that feature to the development team to see where it goes. . . Smiley Wink

I like this idea but agree that there is high potential for abuse. Maybe have it unlocked only at a certain ranking?

 

If I get a vote, SuzyQ is definitely legit enough to have this feature. 🙂

Yep, this works.  And if the name is already on your friends' list, it "auto-fills" for you, cutting down the # of keystrokes needed.  Thanks!
