How can I stay notified ?

There are flexible notification options for WaiverChat.com. You can configure by channel what email you would like to receive and when by going to the information icon for the channel you are in:

Messaging

Sending messages in WaiverChat is self-explanatory: type a message in the message box and press ⏎ (Enter) or the Send Button ().

If you want to send multiple lines of text, press ⇧ ⏎ (shift + enter) to move to the next line.

Notify other Users

To get someone’s attention in a channel, type @ followed by their username, for example @guarilha. (They’ll see a red badge on the channel and be notified via email or their mobile device if they’re not online)

You can also notify everyone in a channel by typing @all. But avoid using @all because it notifies everyone. Although @all is useful for important announcements, it can be distracting if abused.

Deleting Messages

You can delete a message by clicking the gear icon in your message and then clicking the trash icon in the menu popover. A confirmation will be displayed before the message is deleted.

It's also possible to hide or show "Message removed" when messages are deleted.
