This is an umbrella task for the next major product iteration of Conpherence. See T5364 for some original discussion.
The major product features in this iteration are:
- Rooms (T7566): Conpherence currently supports messaging threads between groups of users, but we'd like to expand support to include threads that work like IRC chatrooms and are joinable/discoverable. For example, a new employee can go join the "Engineering" room and the "Social" room.
- Room Notifications (T7569): A major draw of similar software like Slack is publishing notifications into rooms. Conpherence threads should support publishing relevant notifications (for example, maybe a Differential room gets notified when tagged tasks are updated).
- Search (T3165): Content search for threads.
- Chat Column (T7572): New persistent UI element which provides access to Conpherence on all pages.
