Description:

With the program Send2User messages can be send in a network.

The users receive a html popup window with the imformation on their desktop or as email, if they are working outside the network.

Messages can be send to single users, defined groups or to all people in your network.

The combination of single users and groups as receivers for one message is possible.

You can format the message text, insert images, append attachments and use templates for recurrent message contents.


FEATURES:
1 User administration
It allowes to edit groups and the membership of users. Also send permissions can be granted and denied.

2 Images
Tiff-, jpg-, gif-, png- and mng-files like screenshots can be inserted into your message to illustrate some issues.

3 Text blocks
Often used text text blocks can be saved, edited and inserted into the message.

4 Attachments
Messages can include files as attachments.

5 Textformatting
The format of selected text can be changed.

6 Emails
Messages are sent as emails to users outside the network

PREPARATIONS:
You need two shares in your network with read access for the clients and read/write access for the senders:
- main share
- fallback share

LIBRARIES:
Before installation uncompress the delivered zip-file on your hard disk. Don´t use a network share for this. The following libraries (from QT 4.4.3) have to be added in the new folder:
- QtGui4.dll
- QtCore4.dll
- QtNetwork4.dll
- mingwm10.dll
plugins (folder)
- plugins/imageformats (folder)
- plugins/imageformats/qtiff4.dll
- plugins/imageformats/qmng4.dll
- plugins/imageformats/qjpeg4.dll
- plugins/imageformats/qico4.dll
- plugins/imageformats/qgif4.dll
- plugins/imageformats/libqtiff4.a
- plugins/imageformats/libqmng4.a
- plugins/imageformats/libqjpeg4.a
- plugins/imageformats/libqico4.a
- plugins/imageformats/libqgif4.a

Newer versions of Qt framework weren´t tested yet!


FIRST INSTALLATION
------------------
After setting up the two network shares, uncompressing the zip-file on your hard disk and adding the missing libraries you can start with the primary installation:
- doubleclick on \'install.exe\'
- enter the path of shares and paths (with slash not backslash)
- enter the first client group
- enter name of user who can send messages
- choose client+sender to install

Now you can test the message-function on your hard disk. The import file for members has only to be a list with separators e.g. new line, nothing else. Have in mind the users with send permission who can get the sender app later. During installation the following configration files were built:
- settings.ini (main configuration)
- sendPermission.ini (users who can send messages)
- userMessages (folder which html files for the users)
- html and text files for each group


NETWORK DISTRIBUTION
--------------------
After you tested the message function on your hard disk you can install the client or sender on a PC in your network. The information of the client\'s group membership is stored centrally in the text files on the shares. During start process the client refreshes the informations about his group memberships. He also shows messages arrived during his absence from today.

You can distribute \'Send2User\' with your preferred tools using the following parameters:
- install.exe (Wizard with basic installation)
- install.exe -c (for the client)
- install.exe -i (for the client - unattended)
- install.exe -s (for the sender)
- install.exe -b (for client and sender)

- install c (for the client)
- install s (for the sender)
- install b (for client and sender)

The client needs write access to the follwing files in its current directory:
- settings.ini (client\'s folder: write)
- all html files (client\'s folder: write)
- all txt files (client\'s folder: read)
- all files (share/fallback: read)

The sender needs the following permissions:
- all files (sender\'s folder: write)
- all files (shares: write)

To achieve this you might set the suitable permissions by scripting.

The uninstall parameters are:
- uninstall.exe (for client and sender)
- uninstall.exe c (for the client)
- uninstall.exe s (for the sender)


USER ADMINISTRATION
-------------------
GROUPS:
You can add or remove groups and query their members. Group names shouldn\'t contain special characters because they are used in filenames. You can query members to see who will receive a group message.

USER:
Users can be added or removed. They can also be imported using txt- or csv-files containing simple lists with separators. Users can be a member of several groups.

JUNCTIONS:
New and existing users can be joined into groups choosen with the combobox right of the entered text. They can also be imported into this group in the same way as mentioned above. You can search for the memberships of a entered user to remove a single junction afterwards:

PERMISSIONS:
Users can be added or removed who can send messages.

EMAILS:
The name of the smtp-server and sender have to be entered.
Users can be added or removed who can receive messages as email,
when they are outside the network.

After closing the dialog the changes will be inherited by
the sender at runtime and by the clients after restart.
