How to: Using OfficeSuite chat and SMS/MMS in the portal and apps
OfficeSuite UC includes chat among co-workers via the WE Connect portal and in the desktop and mobile apps. Note that chat can be turned OFF by the OfficeSuite administrator, so if your portal and apps don't have the chat box option next to each co-worker in the quick connect tab of the portal and in your desktop and mobile applications then contact your OfficeSuite administrator about enabling it for the organization.
SMS is included in select seat types of OfficeSuite UC. Specifically it's included with the Standard and Advanced Seat types sold with OfficeSuite UC. It can also be purchased individually for a user via the WE Connect portal at the OfficeSuite Licenses page. Your OfficeSuite Administrator needs to assign an SMS license for each user and each phone number that desires to send/receive SMS messages via their OfficeSuite phone number. One of the advantages of doing so is that your employees do not need to divulge their personal cell phone numbers in order to send/receive SMS on behalf of the company.
New as of April 2021, OfficeSuite UC offers MMS packages for new and existing customers. Two packages are available based on the number of MMS messages sent/received in the calendar month. OfficeSuite administrators can order MMS 500 or MMS 1000 licenses at the OfficeSuite SMS/MMS page in the WE Connect portal. MMS messages in excess of the purchased quantity each month are billed 2 cents per message.
For more details about how to use OfficeSuite chat and SMS/MMS, refer to the attached User Guide.
The Windstream Enterprise Community is a community of real people who collaborate on answers, solutions, and ideas about the Windstream Enterprise products and services they use. We invite you to become a member, but we do have a few rules. For everyone's sake, we are committed to enforcing these guidelines, as well as our community vendor's Terms of Service.
People will respect you more, engage with you more often, and treat you like a real person if you use your actual identity here. While not mandatory, it does help us identify accounts when we try to provide answers to specific questions.
We are into transparency, honesty, and truth. Do not misrepresent yourself or lie about your identity, affiliations, or age. Our community is based on the contributions of real people who put their reputations on the line. Be one of them.
Have (Good, Clean) Fun
We encourage the spirit of fun, so long as it does not hurt other people. Please do not use jokes, words or images that come at the expense of others. Be sensitive to other users around you, and do not post profane, sexual, or violent material.
Be Constructive with Your Criticism
The idea here is to foster healthy conversation and debate without ever attacking anyone personally. We take all questions, suggestions, and feedback seriously and will respond accordingly and so should you.
Spread the Wealth
Make our community a richer place by sharing your experience and insight. You may have the perfect answer to someone else's burning question. This is the substance of the Windstream Enterprise Community.
It is okay to talk up the products or services you love (or sell), but only if it is relevant to the conversation. If you are here to plant a ton of links to your Web site without doing much else, your posts are likely to be removed by a moderator.
Do Not Wrongfully Post Content
Make sure you have the right to publish any content you post to the Windstream Enterprise Community, and do not violate the privacy of others.
Be Fruitful, but Do Not Multiply
Do not create multiple accounts to violate these guidelines, game the system, or harass and deceive other users.
Trolls are users whose primary goal is to disrupt the community, attack other users, antagonize community managers, and are never interested in a productive outcome. If you engage in troll behavior, we will ask you to leave the Windstream Enterprise Community.
