There is only one chat window in Sococo. The chat window is anchored to the bottom right corner of the map. You can control what is displayed in this window.
You can display the following items in this window:
a private chat (a chat conversation between you and one other person).
a room chat (a chat thread viewable by all members currently present in the same room).
a Slack room/channel chat (if your Sococo is integrated with Slack).
This article shows steps on launching a Sococo Private chat, either from the People view or from the map.
To launch a private chat on the map:
- Right-click on the avatar of the person you want to chat with.
- Then, select Open Chat.
You can also start the chat from People view:
- On the left side of the screen, right-click on the user.
- Click the user's menu icon.
- From the menu, select Open chat.
Clicking open chat either from the map or while in the People view will open a private chat window between you and another Sococo Space member.
