MSN and Windows Live Messenger in OpenERP

Elico Corp brings you Windows Live Messenger services directly in OpenERP. A new button is added directly in OpenERP (top right menu) to allow the users chat with the email of your choice.

Shanghai Elico Limited - 上海寰享网络科技有限公司, Eric Caudal

This is particularly useful, for instance, for support services. Indeed all your OpenERP users could chat with  support@my-company.com (support need to have a wlm account, but can use this email through their phone, laptop, pidgin, and so on..). The users can use their Windows Live Messenger account or log-on as "Visitor". To set this addon up, you will have to : => It's mandatory to be able to chat with you and see whether you're off-line, away, busy or available.
  • Then click on "Create HTML" on the right side menu, scrolldown to the section with the HTML code and copy your key
=> the key is the part between "invitee=" and "@apps.messenger.live.com", eg: 5853ad247d1c7d0e
  • Finally replace the two "my_own_key" in the file ~/web_wlm_chat/static/src/xml/base.xml by your own key (eg: 5853ad247d1c7d0e).
=> Now you can install the module in OpenERP. The module is available for download in our  launchpad address and at  http://apps.openerp.com We hope you enjoy this new module from Elico Corp! If you have any question, do not hesitate to contact us at: contact@elico-corp.com[gallery]
