Disable Messages for Contacts

on 1/30/15, 5:48 AM 838 views

In a contact's view, we want to send messages to all followers of the contact, but not to the contact itself.

When writing a new message, the checkbox with the contact's email address is enabled by default, but we want to disable it.

Is this possible?

Edit: John Baldwin is absolutely right. it could be very dangerous to send a message for internal users to the contact.

Is it possible to disable messages for contacs in general? of course we need messages for other objects, so disabling write/create access for all messages would be not a solution.

There's a new module which does the job:


Many thanks!

Do you try to disable the follower  or uncheck the box in send message ?

For example, you can try it in opportunity.

It would be nice if it defaulted to this and you could add the customer when you want. Sending a customer notifications on internal works is not good IMHO.
