Using Chat
Hopin’s Chat feature can be used to make comments and ask questions, network with other event participants, and access technical support. Chat can be found on the right side of Hopin, and is collapsible while in sessions. There are a variety of chat types available to participants, depending on where they are in the event platform. Participants can toggle between the various chat options (ex: “Event”, “Session” and “Direct Message”).
  • Event Chat: This chat is visible in all sections of the event platform and is seen by all participants. Use this chat to make overall comments or questions about the training or platform, and to access technical support. This chat is the National Training Information Center and is monitored throughout the event.
  • Main Stage/Session/Booth Chat: These chats are available when participants are in the Main Stage, a Workshop Session, or in an Expo Booth. Each Main Stage and Workshop Session will have its own unique chat. These chats are only seen by participants while they are in these sections of the event platform. Use these chats to make comments or ask questions on the Main Stage, Workshop Session, or Expo Booth.
  • Direct Message Chat: This private message chat is available in all sections of the platform and is only visible to you. Use this chat to network with other participants one-on-one. Connect with others by clicking on their name in any of the chats, or search by name in the ‘People’ section (on the right side of the screen). Moderators may contact you this way to provide individualized tech support if needed or communicate a message related to the training that pertains to you. You will know you have a new chat to view when there is a red dot on the Direct Message tab of the chat box.
