Introducing New Chat Feature in Collab – April 9
During the evening of Tuesday April 9th, Collab will be enhanced with new Chat functionality.
Chat is a messaging interface that allows direct real time communication between Stratus users and their clients, as well as with other Stratus users or Collab teams.
In addition to allowing a user to send simple text, Chat includes provisions for sharing listings, saved searches, websites, and also files from the user’s computer and Collab Documents page.
Stratus users create conversations wherein they define the participants and post messages. Messages can be sent:
- From the Message Stream panel on the Chat page
- Via the “Start a Conversation” button on the Chat page
- From any listing detail view
- From any list of listings
Chat functionality will be added to both the Collab web application and also the iOS and Android apps which are available for free download from the App Store and Google Play. Download the app “Stratus Collab”.
Visual indicators announce new messages on the app version of Collab. The app icon badges let you know that new notifications are available for viewing.
