Join in Chat Rooms

Joining a chat room allows you to participate in the conversation or read what is being said, where multiple chat room members share information in a common chat window. All of the rooms that you are a member of are listed in your My rooms tab. If an administrator adds you to a chat room, it is displayed immediately in your My rooms tab.

Step 1    Click the Chat rooms icon in the main window, and select All Rooms.
Step 2    Browse for a room, which are listed alphabetically. If a room is restricted to specific members, you cannot join the room unless you are added by an administrator. For the restricted rooms that you are not a member of, you see a lock icon instead of the Join button.
Step 3    Select Join beside the room that you want to join. The rooms where you are already a member have a checkmark beside them.

Participate in Chat Rooms

When you are added as a member to a chat room, you can participate in the persistent chat room and view the discussion history.

Step 1    Select the Chat rooms tab. All the chat rooms that you are a member of are listed.
Step 2    Double-click on the room that you want to enter.
Step 3    View the current participant list on the right side of the chat window.
Step 4    Read the discussion and enter your own chat messages. The history of the conversation is persistent. When you exit the chat room and close the client, you can return to the conversation in that room. When you return to the chat room, you can view the messages that were sent by other members while you were not logged in. From the chat room, select Show More to view older messages.

Search Chat Rooms

Step 1    Enter a search term in the Search or call field in the client.
Step 2    Select Search chat room messages option in the list. A search results window is displayed.
Step 3    Select Enter to go to the chat room in the list or you can refine your search using the advanced search icon.
