Restrict users from choosing certain public groups

User can now choose whatever group you have on your Domino server or in your AD. Even AllUsers is allowed to choose.

When users do, Sametime 12.0.2 will brake down in performance.

We had that situation when a couple of users have added AllUsers and opened a GroupChat with 4000 users. :-(

Let me say......Sametime was not happy with that.

We would like to have some kind of GroupAuthorisation: let admins decide which groups are allowed to choose in Sametime or which one we don't !

And restrict the maximum amount of chatusers in a groupchat.

    Some available options to 1) restrict certain groups from being returned in search, preventing adding to a contact list, 2) prevent groups over a threshold to expand, start group chats and send announcements from the contact list and 3) client side settings controlling the use of groups discuss here:
    Additionally, we are looking for better ways to control this via policy. This would provide admins the ability to send announcements to large group by not all users.
