I have a web application for managing tuition which sends SMS time to time based on user actions. For example when a teacher cancel the class then SMS notification will be send to all the students in this class. All the SMS send from the website is stored in a table.
Now I need to display the SMS in a conversation way. I want to know the best way to display the messages in the website. I am thinking about displaying them like in Smart Phones. But sometimes when I message can repeat when a teacher send a message to many students. So I am confused on how well this can be displayed. Is it better to select the contact first then display between the contacts? Please provide me some thoughts to come up with better UI design for this scenario.
