People View is your sightline and action center. It functions as a convenient way to quickly access all of the people available to you in Sococo.
People View is optimized to enhance your awareness of the presence and activity of the people you collaborate with most often. Whether it is working across different spaces or connecting via a third-party channel like Slack, People View lets you interact easily to get work done fast!
Using People View, you can:
- Collapse three distinct sections to control your view.
- Search for people (and Slack channels) using Find.
- See the current people status and location details.
- Access a clickable action menu.
- Open whole-room or private chat box.
- See the view of Slack group messages and channels (if the workspace is integrated with Slack).
Organizing Your People
People are organized into three categories:
- People in the same room as you.
- People you have manually “starred.”
- People you have had recent conversations with.
Each of the above categories can also be collapsed or expanded by clicking on the arrow to the right of the header.
People in the Same Room as You
This section is updated by Sococo to tell you who is in your room right now. It is handy to have this list when you are in a large meeting, for example.
Glance here for a room roster so that you are aware of all participants, including those who are not sharing videos or are quiet.
"Blinkies" indicate who is talking. You can also see who has activated their headset, mic, camera, or screen share.
There are multiple ways to add a person to your Starred list. Read more about Starring here.
As you interact with others in Sococo, this list will smartly auto-update so that the people you chatted with most recently are at the top of the list. Your Recent Conversations list will grow to 25 list items before being refreshed. (Initially, the Recent Conversations section will start out showing you the people who have most recently entered your space.)
Right-click on a name in the Recent Conversation list and choose "Remove from list" in the menu if you would like to remove a particular listing here.
Automated Status Icons
Status icons give you a quick sense of what people are currently up to.
If you are using live media in a room with others, Sococo will auto-update your status icon to indicate this, letting others know when you are Speaking, Listening, or Presenting.
You can manually change your status at any time by right-clicking on your name in People View and clicking Change Status.
When you are actively speaking in a room, there will be a "blinkie" by your name in the People View list to let others know you are engaged in a conversation.
You can hover over a person’s name to get instant information on where they are currently located, including if it is a different space from where you are.
Hovering over a name listed in People View will also allow you to access an action menu by clicking the trio of dots next to the name. From here, you can:
- Spotlight, a colleague, to quickly find him on the map
- Add him to your Starred list
- View a profile
- Invite him/her to the room you are in
- Knock on the door of the room he/she is in
- Open a private chat window
- Enter his/her space (if he/she is not currently in the same workspace as you)
To quickly chat with all the people who are in the same room as you, click Chat in [Room] at the top of your People View just below the Find tool.
To open a private chat with someone, click on their name and a chatbox will open in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.
Looking for someone? Do not waste time scanning your People View list line-by-line. Click on Find at the top and type a name or email address to locate someone.
If you are working in a space that is integrated with Slack, your People View will offer you multiple ways to interact with people through both apps.
You can also use the Find tool to locate Slack channels and group chats. Read more here.
