    Internal messaging to request a bin closed

    My team exchanges 30 or so texts back and forth daily requesting so-and-so to close a bin on the Nexis so that someone can save something into that bin. It's not always clear which room has the bin open unless you know all the names by heart.

    Would be great if a little utility could pop up and give a message making the request. It's typically something open in the background that's not even being used.

    We specifically have our avids OFF the internet for security, so messaging apps won't work, but something that could travel across the Nexis' wiring would.

    Alternately, if a bin has been idle for a configurable amount of time, say 1 hour, maybe it could just auto-close. That would allow vacated rooms to not tie up opened bins.

    And an option to then add external Avid users (via the internet as many Avids do libe on the internet now) to that chat pool.

    Maybe an option to send a key via email that the remote user enters into the chat and that connects them.
