Starting a Group Chat

You can start a group chat with the members of a group to which you belong.

  1. In the panel that displays the list of conversations, click the New icon.
  2. From the pop-up menu that appears, select New Group Chat.

    The Start A Group Chat panel appears.

    From this panel, shortcuts are defined when you right-click on a group, a department or an individual user that may allow you to send a message or update your favorites list.

    • If you right-click on a group, you can select Message Group to send a message to the entire group. If the group is not a favorite, select Make Favorite to make this group a favorite. If the group already is a favorite, select Remove Favorite to remove the group from your favorites list.
    • If you right-click on a department, you can select Message Department to send a message to the entire department.
    • If you right-click on a user, and the user is not a favorite, select Make Favorite to make this user a favorite. If the user is a favorite, select Remove Favorite to remove the user from your favorites list.
  3. Tap the name of a group. A list of the group members appears.
  4. Use the checkboxes at the right to select the members of the group with which you want to chat.
  5. Click Start Chat to start the group chat.

The Vocera Platform Messaging Console creates a chat room in which the selected members of the group are invited to be participants.
