How Do I Chat with Other Members?

Mighty Networks supports chat conversations with up to 9 members, Private Chat messages and Space chat in a Space.

Group and Private Chat

To start a direct 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 and will need to start a new chat.

In all chats, you can add images, emojis and GIFs, check out this article to learn more.

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

If you mention someone not in the chat, there will be an error message shown that the member "will not be notified because they are not a member of this 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.

Start a Conversation

If your Host has this AI feature enabled, then 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.

You can search for existing chat conversations from within a chat. By typing a name into the search bar, you'll see any relevant member names appear along with a text preview of the associated conversation. You can do this on both web and mobile through the chat conversation search bar at the top of the chat list.

Archiving Chat Conversations

Archiving a chat conversation will hide the conversation from your chat list. However, the chat will reappear in the list if another member adds a message to the conversation.

If you archive a chat and want to unarchive it, you can do so by recreating the conversation with the same people. Create a new chat, add the members, and when you click “Start Chat” the conversation will pick up where you left off.

If the archived conversation is with just one other person, you can also unarchive it by navigating to their profile and clicking “Chat.”
