Chat is what Qwil Messenger is all about. From individual chats with just one other person to group conversations with multiple participants— chat has you covered.
Here are the top things to know about chat:
Chat in Qwil caters for whatever your needs may be. You can have one-on-one conversations with one of your contacts or create group chats with more participants. To create a chat click on + on the top of your chat list, add a name, and select the participants. Then send a message to make the chat active.
Once in a chat, you’ll be able to send messages that include files, links, emojis — whatever you need to chat with your colleagues and contacts!
2. Create a chat per topic
We know sometimes a chat thread can become very long with multiple topics being discussed at the same time. With Qwil you can create a chat per topic, that way you can keep all relevant information in a single conversation. You can even have multiple chats with the same participants. Create a chat for a project (Website Design), for a team (Marketing) or to discuss a specific matter (June spending report).
There are lots of formatting options for messages. Message formatting helps add detail and clarity to your communications on Qwil. You can even add multiple formatting options to the same selection of text, for example, **Qwil is a _great_ app** will be displayed as Qwil is a great app.
You can find a handy formatting helper at the bottom of your text input. To make the helper appear, type 3 characters in the text input box.
Using search makes it easier to find the right message, file, or chat when you need to. You can search all of your chats, even if you left. Your search results will include active and archived chats, so you can be sure you can find what you are looking for.
You can find a message that has a keyword that you remember or use extensions to find attachments (i.e. search for .pdf to find all PDF files).
Search all the conversations that you have participated in, or search within a specific chat.
You can also list all attachments that have been sent in chat by opening a chat's details.
Sometimes, having too many chats can be distracting and can clutter your chat list. In Qwil you can easily archive conversations that are no longer relevant or mute chats so you stop receiving notifications.
To make sure you do not miss anything important, chats that have been archived will return to your chat list when new messages are received. However, if you prefer, you can deep archive a chat, by muting and archiving it. A chat that is deep archived will not return to your active chat list when new messages appear and you will not be notified of any incoming messages.
As a client user, you can add any of your contacts to a conversation. New participants will be able to see any messages or files shared in a chat before they joined. A great way to keep everyone in the loop!
As a staff user, you can add or remove participants from a chat. You can add any other staff member to a conversation, but you can only add clients that you have in your contact list. This is very handy if you want to bring an expert into the conversation. Remove participant that no longer need to be a part of a conversation.
There are two ways to remove participants from a chat:
- Uninvite: the user you uninvited will still be able to see the chat as read-only, but will not see any new messages or files sent after they were uninvited.
- Revoke: the user will not be able to see the chat anymore. All messages and files will become unavailable and the chat will be removed from their chat list.
The Qwil mobile app helps you connect and collaborate wherever you are. The app is available on iOS and Android. Chat with colleagues, answer important messages on the go, and access all of your chats, files, and more.
