MyPublicInbox: Messaging platform to communicate in a respectful way with relevant personalities
MyPublicInbox is an application that was born as a solution to the frequent misuse of digital communication channels (email, social networks, platforms…) when it comes to contacting someone we don’t know and who hasn’t asked us to write to them.
Plain Concepts worked together with MyPublicInbox to create a tool that aims to solve all these problems, providing an easy, safe and respectful way to communicate with the most relevant personalities in the sector of your interest.
The initial challenges were numerous: defining how communications are established, defining types of profiles, the maximum length of messages, whether to allow or not to include links and whether to enable them or not, registration process, internal management tool... Another great challenge was the creation of the profile dashboard, as well as the management of the received messages, being an essential requirement that these were as intuitive as possible for the non-expert user.
As the priority was to provide service in the shortest time possible, an architecture was chosen that allows the implementation of new features very quickly and easily, but without leaving aside the quality and security guarantees.
Perhaps one of the most relevant aspects is the use of Azure Active Directory B2C, an identity management service that allows personalized control of registration, login, and profile management so that third parties can register.
Currently, several aspects are still being worked on, such as the development of a search engine, the constant improvement of the dashboard and the user experience, the possibility of adding file sharing functionality, and the possible development of the mobile application.
