MyChat Client
[+] a tool for redirecting users in a private dialogue.

First of all, this tool is helpful for a website support chat if you need to redirect an incoming user to another and more experienced operator.

If this is a website visitor, he will see a list of WEB chat operators. If this is a regular MyChat user, he will see all registered users except (WEB Guest or blocked users).

After this, the dialogue closes for an operator; a website visitor gets a new operator, and a new MyChat Client user opens a dialogue with this person.

Dialogues can be transferred to offline users too. All users have access to redirect dialogues by default, but you can change it in Rights Group on the server.

MyChat Server
[*] (03.05.2019) automatic import of users' patronymics from a domain using the field "displayName".

Unfortunately, Active Directory does not have the field "patronymic" and administrators often write full names or their variants in the field displayName. Now, when MyChat tries to get a patronymic from the field displayName, provided that a name ("givenName") and surname ("sn") are specified in a profile for sure;

[*] (03.05.2019) when importing users from a domain, the server automatically makes the first letter as capital in a surname, name, and patronymic.

Again, if an administrator specifies names and surnames without capital letters, MyChat will fix it an upload users as it should be.

[*] (04.05.2019) reduced the load on a processor almost to zero in a system for working time control.

This improvement is helpful for terminal servers where the clients work on the same server but in different sessions.

MyChat Client
[-] (04.08.2019) MyChat Client "freezes" when you open a private dialogue. Fixed.

This issue occurred in various cases: when opening a private dialogue; during an automatic launching and opening a big number of private dialogues. The icon was blinking in the system tray sometimes as if there were unread messages, but all private dialogues in tabs were read.

We recommend updating the server and problematic clients manually. The version has not changed. Setup files unloaded on the website.

MyChat Server
[*] (04.09.2019) improved feature of creating a backup copy of the server database.

When creating a backup copy, the server closes the work with all its databases and copies them in folder C:\ProgramData\MyChat Server\db\temp\, and restores a connection with databases.

The server archives the content of folder temp into a backup ZIP file and deletes it. Thus, we managed to reduce delays during the active work between users and the server when you need a copy "right now" or the server is used constantly during the whole day (and databases of big size are created for a long period of time).

[*] (04.11.2019) ability to delete the date of birth in personal profile (Alt+U).

It's enough to clear the field with the date (Del) and press the button "Ok" or "Apply".

MyChat Client
(04.12.2019) (setup) problem with MyChat automatic installer downloaded from own server. Sometimes the installation can start not in a user profile, but in Program Files. Fixed.

mychat-client-auto-setup.png
mychat-client-auto-setup.png (8.81 KiB) Viewed 1713 times

By default, the installer always works with the folder in a user profile. But sometimes the program decides to install in Program Files. For example, if MyChat Client was installed there before.

Now, if the setup file name is not mcclient-v7-3-0.exe but more complicated (contains the server encrypted address), then the installation will be always performed to a user profile folder.

MyChat Client
[*] (04.12.2019) when sending files in conferences and private dialogues that are located on network resources, the recipient sees a direct link to this file. Fixed.

Nothing changed for the sender, and he still sees a file in a chat on a network resource (\\...). But on the recipient side, this link will be cleared in the message render. To receive this file a user has to download it from MyChat Server.


[-] (04.12.2019) if a user receives a notification with attachments and his settings allow automatic file downloading from incoming notifications, and he also has not received files from the sender yet, then MyChat Client "freezes". Fixed.

The problem deals with the absence of the folder for incoming files for specific user ("C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\MyChat\"UIN - DisplayName\"). Because of this, the function for downloading files from the server starts to work cyclically, and the program window stops reacting to mouse and keyboard.

MyChat Client
[*] (04.25.2019) removed fucntion "Insert", "Link", "File or folder in the local network". Improved function for inserting any links in the chat ((\\, http://, https://, ftp://, file://);

We removed the function for inserting links to a file/folder in the local network as it works very slow or freezes in the network neighborhood. Now you can use the tool for inserting links (Alt+L):
