U2U Users Guide


U2U Instant Messenger

U2U’s are a way of sending personal messages to board members that only they can read. Please use this system rather than leaving specific messages intended for just one person on the board.

U2U’s operate by opening a message inbox in a new window. To get into your U2U box either click the ‘U2U Instant Messenger’ tab in the middle of ‘Your Personal Features’ box on the homepage, or go through your control panel, or from the U2U option at the top right of the page under your login name. If you have a new U2U it will also notify you here (in the top right of the page, under where it says Last active: 16-3-2005 at 12:49 PM)

Clicking into the U2U Instant Messenger will open a new window. The first page of this new window is your inbox. All messages you receive will be stored here, and it will also tell you whether or not you have read them yet.

Read a message by clicking on the subject of the message. You can delete, reply, forward or move the message by choosing your option from the list and clicking ‘submit changes’. Or you can leave it as it is and navigate out of the message by going back to your Inbox/Outbox etc. using the menus at the top or on the left.

To send a new message to someone you can either reply to a U2U they have already sent you (as above) or start a new message from scratch. To do this click on the ‘Send U2U’ option on the top menu bar. Enter the person’s username in the ‘Send to’ box, then write your message. You can then send it straight away or save it in your drafts folder to view later. A copy of the message will automatically be saved in your Outbox folder.

If you go into your outbox the status of the message will tell you whether or not the recipient has read the message yet.

Quotas
To preserve board resources I have limited each person to 50 U2U messages. This includes messages in your Inbox, your Outbox and your trash folder. If your quota has been reached you will be unable to receive U2U messages until you make some room! Your quota is displayed at the bottom of each page of your U2U interface, keep an eye on it!

You do this by deleting messages- either go through them individually message by message or in bulk from the Inbox.

Deleting messages individually: open the message you want to delete, scroll down to the options at the bottom of the page, select delete and ‘submit changes’

Deleting messages by bulk: Go to your Inbox (or Outbox) Click in the ‘select’ column by each message you want to delete so that a tick appears in the box. Tick as many as you like. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and select delete and ‘submit changes’.

You will see that your Trash Folder now shows that it contains messages. If you think you may have deleted an item by accident this is the place to go and retrieve it from, using the options at the bottom of the page to move it to a different folder. Or you can click ‘empty’ and your selected messages will be deleted. Important note: Only after you have emptied your Trash Folder will the number of U2U’s in your system reduce.
