All teams are configured with 4 standard chat groups: “Coaches Only”, Coaches/Players”, “Full Team”, and “Parents Only”.
In addition to the default groups members can create smaller group chat channels for specific purposes. For instance, Team Parents may want to create a chat channel for themselves or Team Captains might like a place to communicate together. Whatever the reason, it is easy to create additional chat channels.
First, go to the chat area of your team space.
In the bottom right-and corner press the “message” icon.
Press “Group chats”
(If you have created custom groups in the past, they will be listed here.)
Press “Create group chat”.
Next, give your channel a name and Save.
Your name will automatically appear as a member. Too add new members, press “Add users”.
In the “Search for user by name” field begin typing the a name. (You need to type at least 3 characters to initiate auto-search)
Select the person by pressing their name.
Then press “Connect”
You will be brought back to the directory search page where you can find additional members and add them to your group.
Once you have added everyone you need, press “Close”
Press the ‘X’ in the upper left-hand corner to exit and return to your team chat area. Your new group will be listed there. Just press it to begin a new conversation.
The chat group is now accessible only to those you have chosen. You can add/delete members of this group at anytime.
