How can I set up group chat?
You can do this by activating the Chat module. Check out the help guide
Is the group chat one-on-one, or can multiple members chat at once?
The Chat module provides a group-wide chatroom -- which means any member logged in can join the conversation!
I don’t want old chat messages to be displayed all the time. How can I change this?
You can disable the chat history by clicking on Administer this Page from the Chat page, or navigating to the Pages section of your admin menu/panel and then clicking ‘Administer' next to Chat.
I want to keep a record of chat conversations.
You can enable your chat history by clicking on Administer this Page from the Chat module, or navigating to the Pages section of your admin menu/panel and then clicking Administer next to Chat. Once you've changed the option there to enabled, as group admin you'll be able to selectively delete items from the chat history.
How do I send a message to all members of my social network?
You can either email all of your members or post an alert message that they'll see when they visit the group by visiting the Group Message section of your admin panel: http://grou.ps/YOURGROUPNAMEHERE/admin/groupmessage
Can my group members send each other messages without using chat?
Yes, your members can send and receive private messages. They can do so by clicking on the link to send a message from any user's profile, and check messages that they've received by clicking on My Account and then ‘My Incoming Messages' in their dashboard.
