When a user creates an appointment, the “ibovo Chat” forum can be selected. This will allow all meeting invitees and host to meet within a common chat room (no other members will be able to access the chat session). Access to the chat room is provided by clicking “Start Meeting” from the meeting invites.


    3D. ibovo Conference - Web Conferencing 3rd-party software will be integrated with ibovo to provide ibovo members with an optional premium service for holding team meetings and interviewing potential team members. The Web Conferencing approach meets the following objectives:
     (1) Allow ibovo members to schedule Web Conference meetings with other members of the ibovo community who have subscribed to this service;
    (2) Provide an optimal end-user experience to ibovo members
    (3) Maximize the number of Web Conference member subscriptions
     (4) Minimize overhead expenses relating to the 3rd-party Web Conference product. These objectives can best be achieved by integrating the ibovo system with the 3rdparty Web Conference provider to maintain a dynamic pool of generic Web Conference accounts to support the conferencing needs of the ibovo community; instead of assigning Web Conference accounts to individual members or individual teams.

    Challenges

    The major challenge that we faced while developing this site was integration web conference third party API and payment gateway.

    Team Profiles privacy settings and Automatch results of roles and team with relevancy. The designing of the site was also a challenge as the client was very particular about Alignment of controls &other design issues etc, Database of the site gets quite heavy with time.

    Time Zone conversion management is also a major achievement during the development of the application.

    Solution

    1.Managing different user profiles:  By maintaining the user information in database and other file storing in folders.
    2.Applying different screens to different user’s profile: By using different Skin files.
    3.Displaying error messages through message management in the web: By using the php inbuilt functionality in message management to display the error messages.
