    3939=== Message Flows ===
     40 * When a message is picked up by the handler, it decides whether it's an XForm or not.
     41 * If it is, then it is routed direct to the relevant resource.
     42 * If not then it is added to the Master Message Log ({{{msg_log}}})
     43 * When new messages arrive in the Master Message Log, then the Parser looks for keywords & tries to Route automatically - either to a resource or to a {{{pe_pentity}}} (NB 'routing' to a resource is actually just 'tagging').
     44 * Users can view the Master Message Log via the 'Ticketing Module' UI & do manual Routing - either to a resource or a {{{pe_pentity}}}.
     45 * Users can Subscribe to Resources in order to receive copies of all messages which are routed to a resource.
     46 * When a user visits a Resource via it's Web UI, then the [wiki:RESTController] scans the {{{msg_log}}} & provides access to associated messages in the views (display/update views have a list of associated messages in a table below the main record. list views have an extra column showing the number of messages tagged to this resource & number unread by this user ({{{unread(read)}}}) which is hyperlinked to a view which displays these records.
     47 * XML exports (such as RSS feeds) include tagged messages as linked resources.

     49==== How do we achieve this? ====
     50 * Table {{{pe_subscription}}} is used to maintain subscriptions for a {{{pe_pentity}}}.
     51  * Fields: ''tbc''
     52 * Table {{{msg_delivery_status}}} is used to store delivery statuses.
     53  * Fields: message_id, pe_contact_id, status
     54 * Table {{{msg_read_status}}} is used to show that a message has been read by a user.
     55  * Fields: message_id, auth_user_id ('read' is assumed)
     56  * Q: Do we mark as read if pe_contact_id status suggests person has received message?
     57  * Good to have UI to 'Mark Unread'
    4258=== User Interface ===
    4359The home page should be a common Inbox view which, by default, shows all new unread Items (the 'Ticketing Module').
