The chat menu (right)
The right menu when in a chat enables you to edit a title, add or remove participants, search, view documents/pictures, and export the transcript. You are also able to archive chats and copy the chat link for logging purposes.
At any point in a chat participants can be added, allowing for you to invite your colleagues or clients into an existing chat:
Only administrators can invite new clients, if you wish to invite new clients you should contact your Qwil admin. However, it is possible to grant you this permission in your organisation by asking your Qwil admin to upgrade your account to a User Admin.
