Chat Customizations

Customize Chat Apps to display content as a continuous stream of unthreaded chat, allowing your audience to engage in real-time conversation around live events or announcements.

These options are available from the Chat App:

  • Number of posts to load

    Enter the number of posts to display upon initial load. You may enter between 1 and 50.

  • Posts appear in cards

    If enabled, posts will be displayed with a surrounding box, and the background color dictated by the Theme selection applied.

  • Preview media

    If enabled, media attachments will be displayed as fully expanded media inline in the stream. If disabled, media is displayed as links only.

  • Number of listeners

    If enabled, the number of users active on the page will be displayed.

  • User tags

    If enabled, user tags will be displayed with posted content.

  • User avatars

    If enabled, user avatars will be displayed with posted content.

  • Users may share comments

    If enabled, users may share posted comments to Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn. For more information on enabling sharing, see Settings > Integration Settings > Social Sharing.

  • Additional sort option

    Allows you to offer sort options for your end users:** Most liked** or Most active.

You can customize Chat using:

  • Style and Config options for all Apps in the App Designer. See Customizing Apps for details on the standard Style and Config options for all Apps in the App Designer.
