The settings available to you will depend on your user permissions. Site administrators from your Teamwork Projects account will have more settings options in Chat.


Profile

Within the profile view, you can edit your:

  • First and last name
  • Handle - the @mention other users would use to message you
  • Mobile
  • Social Media
    • Twitter
    • LinkedIn
    • Facebook
    • Google+
Note: Profile settings are linked to your profile within Teamwork Projects, so any changes made will automatically sync across and vice versa.

These detail will then be visible to other users when viewing your Chat profile:



Preferences

In the preferences tab, you can choose which messages you want to be notified of, enable notification sounds, and enable email notifications.

Notification options:

  • All messages - any message that is posted to a conversation or room
  • All Mentions @'handle' / @all / @online - when an @command is used, a notification will be sent
  • Only @'handle' - when another user @mentions you in a conversation or room
  • No messages - no notification will be sent
Note:  Any changes made to notification settings will only affect the current version of the app you are using, and won't transfer across to other versions (desktop or browser).

Notification sounds: Disabling will mute the sound alert on all messages received from other users. Desktop notifications will still be sent however sound alerts will become muted. 

Email notifications: Allows users to receive email notifications of important messages via email when marked away and not active.

By replying to an email notification from Teamwork Chat, your reply is posted to that conversation / room.
