Doug, I'm very happy to help. You all have your hands full with the hard stuff. I have no known experience with this specific forum software, but I work in I.T., I'm online all the time, and I'm lucky answering some of these questions is something I can do to pay it forward a bit to the community.DaveNW -- Brian and I have little or no past experience with XenForo, so we're learning as we go. We really appreciate you and several other folks jumping in to help answer questions.
I could see who initially generated the PM Conversation. What was NOT included for me to see was ALL parties the Conversation was sent TO. When replying, the was no indication that the reply was going to anyone other than the origin sender.you should get a notification email when anyone starts or replies to a conversation (pm)
also, any party within a conversation can see all messages in the convo
Tom, from what I can gather from your explanations it seems in the initial send you did not check the box at the bottom that says "allow anyone in the conversation to invite others." The instruction is a little deceiving when sending to multi-recipients because apparently not checking the box blinds the receipients that others were included in the send message. Once you went back and checked the box, the list was populated for everyone to see.Yes I did get by email .
I am not sure of the time frame ( ie is there any "lag "?) I read the first response while on TUG on our home / desk top computer
and did not hear my phone or Ipad "ding" to announce an email ( however I could have missed it .)
when I opened and looked at the email this morning on my Ipad - all who responded where visible and their response could be read
I am posting to help " the learning curve " of all users , and my own .
5 is the limit. If you need more than that you can always create something like a Google Group and move your conversation there.Dredging up this old post to ask additional questions. Can you have more than 5 participants in a conversation? How to you add an additional participant to a conversation? TIA.
