Advanced Notices now allows custom scheduling!

Advanced Notices add-on is designed to enhance your business by sending important notices and announcements using a calendar-based interface.

Recently we conducted a survey asking for feedback regarding the Advanced Notices add-on, as always our users were kind enough to provide very useful feedback. Thank you!

We added a feature to allow custom scheduling, when you visit your Advanced Notices add-on

1. Visit your Advanced Notices and create new notice
2. Enable the Repeat option
3. You will notice the Custom option that you can click.

This option will allow you to enter your own schedule, which our system will recognize, parse it with our scheduling and give you the confirmation.

 

To find out more information and what kind of scheduling rules you can currently enter, Visit Custom Schedule Documentation

You can purchase the Advanced Notices add-on from our add-on store – if you need any help, feel free to contact our 24/7 Live Chat Support

Live IMs page badges

Live IMs module unread messages badgeLive IMs is an extremely popular SmartBots module for Second Life bots which allows talking through your bot.

About module: you can receive messages, reply to them and compose new conversations via web page. All messages go through your bot so it is an ideal solution for an office greeter or a support bot (our staff use it for support, too).

What’s new: to make your work with Live IMs a bit more convenient, we’ve added a badge displaying the number of unread messages.

This badge helps you noticing new messages.

Support Bot bot friendliness

SupportBots module has been published!We’ve recently discovered a minor problem with Support Bot friendliness. The bot is supposed to greet your visitor once he starts typing (even before he sends away the message).

This is how this greeting message looks like (with the default Support Bot settings):

support_bot_invitation

The secret is that bot reacts on visitor’s “XXX started typing” notification. However, it turned out that (some) SL regions (sometimes) forget to send this notification. The reasons are quite obscure, but they prevent support bot from greeting your visitor.

We did a tiny workaround: bot also tracks the “stopped typing” notification which still arrive. Bot uses it to ensure that greeting has been sent to the visitor. Since most of residents do short pauses while typing (usually after “Hello”), the bot is always aware of a new contact.

We are very grateful to our customer whose bot helped to locate and resolve this issue!

Today’s blog-post-coupon is ALWAYSYOURS, it gives 30% discount while purchasing the Support Bot module in our Store.
