How Does Chat Work in a Mighty Network?
Updated over a week ago

Chat is a powerful feature that offers your members a way to connect and keep conversations flowing between themselves.

Here are some ideas on how you can use chat in your Mighty Network

  • Quickly coordinate meetup plans for a smaller group of members in a group chat

  • Reach out to a person directly to share a common interest or goal in a private chat

  • Gather recommendations for books, movies or music in a Space chat

  • And much more!

Chat is a great, light way for your members to engage and to let the people magic flow in your Mighty Network!

We offer private chat with just one member, group chats with up to 9 members as well as a chat feature inside of Spaces!

Start a Private or Group Chat

To start a chat with one or more other members, click the chat icon in the upper right and click “+” to start a new chat, then search for the names of the members you want to add, select them, and click “Start Chat”. Once a chat has been created, you cannot add new members to it. You will need to start a new chat.

You can also start a chat with one other member by going to their profile and clicking "Chat".


Space Chat

Inside of each Space, there is the ability to chat with other members. Depending on the type of community you're a part of, your Host may or may not have this feature flipped on.

You will see the notifications for Space chat messages as a number indicator in the left hand navigation next to the Space as well as in your conversation list.

At Mention

You can @ mention other people in Space, private or group chats by typing the "@"symbol along with their name.

When you mention someone, they will receive an email, in-app and mobile push notification.

If you mention someone in the chat that doesn’t have access to the Space chat or the private or group chat, there will be an error message shown that the member "will not be notified because they are not a member of this Chat."

Chat Replies

Chat replies help keep chats in your Mighty Network organized, more discoverable, and most importantly, FUN.

You can reply to chat conversations in Space, private or group chats by selecting the “reply” icon.

If enabled, replies will trigger email and mobile push notifications.

Chat threads will also appear in your conversation list and begin with “Replies to”.

Private Chat Options

Network Hosts can turn off private chat for all members in the Mighty Network or allow members to control their chat individually.

To access these settings go to Admin > Members > Private Chat

Toggling off private chat in the upper right corner will mean that members will not be able to directly chat with each other.

They will still receive Space chat notifications, but the "+" icon to create new private chats will be removed.

The second option will allow each member to individually decide if they want to send and receive messages using private chat.

If it’s toggled on, the member, Host, or moderator will be able to first visit their Personal Settings > Chat.

From there, they can toggle on or off private chat.

Show Similarities

This AI feature is available on Courses plans and up and can be found when you navigate to someone else’s profile. You and your members will see a prompt that says “Show Similarities”. Selecting that option will show the similarities between you and the other person.

Start a Conversation

This AI feature is available on Courses plans and up and is for you and your members. It will show when opening up a direct message or group chat with members you have never chatted with before. You will see the option to “Suggest a Conversation Starter”. Selecting that will show you a sample message to send based on your profiles and similarities. It will be in draft form and you can choose to send it, edit it or choose “Try Again” for a different suggestion.
