One of the benefits of using an IM Network is the ability to facilitate group communication at a distance. At times, you may want to create a dedicated space for a specific topic with a specific group of people. Or you may prefer to have a set collaboration space for each group on your network. With the Chat Rooms Feature you can do just that, creating long-lasting discussion spaces for any combination of friends or colleagues on your network. This allows you to easily facilitate group communication on your IM Network.
Chat Rooms for Groups
Easily ensure that groups on your network have their very own Chat Room. The Chat Room for Groups feature provides a group of contacts with a dedicated Chat Room that updates to reflect group composition. Users entering or leaving a group will be automatically added or removed from the group’s Chat Room, saving your network administrator time and effort.
Situational Chat Rooms
Chat Rooms are also an efficient way to facilitate communication on the go. Set up a Chat Room to hold a quick cross-team conversation, or to facilitate a short-term project with colleagues in different locations. Our customers have found numerous ways to use this feature.
