The event chat screen works in much the same way that chats and comments work throughout TIMU.
The chat history is preserved, and you can scroll through it to review the conversation. You can react to individual messages by clicking the thumbs-up emoji icon, and selecting a reaction from the pop-up that appears. If you want to delete one of your own messages, click the triple-dot icon that appears when you hover over a message and select “Delete”.
To send a message, type your message in the reply box at the bottom of the feed and press Enter or click the “Send” button. As with all chat features in TIMU, you can attach files, share external links, and mention other users in the event with the @mention feature. Note that while @mentioning is supported in the event details, all users in the event will receive notifications for every message, regardless of whether they were mentioned in the message.
If any users are currently viewing this event, their profile pictures will appear to the left of the “Send” button.
