Problem addressed by this invention:
In multi-point login system, eg: instance message application, there is a problem for duplicated notification. For collaboration software that provides both mobile and PC client, it does not tell which client user is currently work with. All messages are sent to both PC and mobile device in the same time. Users are promoted for the same new message on both mobile and PC.
The traditional solution to this problem is to setup deliver priority. The PC client status outweigh the mobile client status if both clients are online. It can not switch status when user leaves PC client temporarily. For example, when user leave office for lunch, the message can not be sent to mobile without changing status on PC manually.
Core Idea in this invention
Change all clients profile in multi-point login system when one of client location status changed. When location of one client is changed, it upload the new location to server, which keep tracking location of all devices for clients. The server can switch profile automatically on all clients according to pre-defined rules for locations. For instance, an user has client on two devices: a mobile phone come with user, and a PC in office. When both devices stay in the same location, the server knows user is in office, and could switch PC client profile to "Active", and mobile client to "Quiet". When the user go to cafeteria for lunch, server can switch PC client profile to "Locked", and mobile to "Active", because the location of mobile client is different with the one on PC.
