Description

Users are having issues with the logic and usability of the BP messaging system. It's generally functional but some of its procedures tend to stifle usage. Mind you these are not meant to be harsh criticisms of BP of which I am a huge fan.

  1. You can only see 4 messages per page. pagination becomes a major issue when messages build up. Perhaps showing more/all on a page
  2. You can't view messages in header format (1 line) to see a more condensed list
  3. You can't view only new messages and you can't force them to the front of the line so you have to page thru every page to find the new one.
  4. The multi-user thread is a hit as it makes following a message conv quite easy. There does seem to be a bug in that the email drop copy in a multi-addressee thread truncates all messages to ""
  5. user are often reporting not being aware of how to add multiple addressees (search only works for the beginning characters of a name so typing last name does nothing) lack of an address book function deters them as well.
  6. The link to view the message in the drop copy email only takes you to the message page, not the message itself. At a min, the email should state that.
  7. Not everyone realize all you have to do is click on the message title to open it. There prob should be a "View Message" button, along with a reply. Once you're in the message the reply concept is obvious
