Instant team communication with the Group Chat & 1-1 features
Communication is a huge element of collaboration with clients & teams. Clinked now offers Group Chat & 1-1 Chat within all of your groups. This approach keeps you connected whilst keeping conversations on topic in your web application and the Clinked mobile app. Group and 1-1 chat allows you to connect instantly with members of your projects and groups while retaining chat history for future reference. You will receive notification alerts ensuring that messages aren’t missed as well as always be able to see which users are currently online.
Why is Group Chat unique?
Group Chat is different than private 1-to-1 chatting because of the conversations being open and visible to all team members. This means that any group member can join the conversation, share ideas and link with your team in real-time. The Group Chat feature is perfect for projects, teams or entire departments; everyone can be aware of what’s going on and can collaborate to make things happen, FAST!
Are my conversations secure with group chat?
Your conversations are password protected and safe. You’ll need to be a member of the group or project to see and contribute to the conversations that are taking place – whether that’s from your desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
All communication uses 256-bit SSL security (which is the same as online banks).
How to disable group chat?
1. If you would like to disable group chat, first go to the group (or project) that you’d like to disable the chat functionality for.
2. In the top right corner of the group homepage, go to Settings.
3. Once you’re in group settings, scroll down to the Group Tools section, untick Group chat and select Update.
One to One Chat
One to one chat is an addition to the group chat feature, allowing you to have conversations with any of the individuals that are members of the same group as you. You can also view a full screen display of all your chats – to access, navigate to the small envelope icon located next to your user name in the top right corner of Clinked. This view displays a clear overview of all group and one to one chats. Here you can also search for a specific chat using the Filter Conversation bar and open new chats directly using the green plus icon.
To access the Messages section, navigate to the top left corner and click on the icon with 3 horizontal lines (this may feel like many consumer apps you use daily). A left hand pop-up window will appear where you’ll find the Messages section to access all your 1-1 and group chats in a single board.
