    Broadcast Message

    Sometimes as an admin I need to broadcast to our team outages and such. I'd like the ability as an admin to send a message as a console message that cannot be replied to.

    Bare minimum would be to at least assign an admin flag to a user that is able to use this ability. I know potentially it could open a lot of windows. So maybe there is a way to broadcast without opening the windows. But there really needs to be a feature to send messages like this to only all "Online" people.

    Hello Lonecrowe,
    welcome to the forums!

    Such feature is available in ZeXtras Chat through the `broadcastMessage` CLI command.

    For usage informations, run

    Code:
    zxsuite chat broadcastMessage
    as the 'zimbra' user.

    Have a nice day,

    p.s.: This feature is not available yet on ZeXtras Suite 1.8.13BETA.

    Right thanks, but is there a way we can do it from Zimbra itself in the future possibly? Without needing to SSH into the server?

    Hello Lonecrowe!

    The ZeXtras Chat module is currently being rewritten, and while the "Broadcast Message" feature will not be available in the next release of ZeXtras Suite, it will be re-implemented from scratch and a GUI option will probably be added...

    Have a nice day,

    Hello Cine,

    The broadcastMessage action was taken from the 1.19 version?

    Hello brasilis!

    As stated in the post above yours, the "Send Broadcast Message" feature has been removed from ZeXtras Suite, but it will be added back in the near future
