How do I start a private chat?

In some cases it can be useful to start a private conversation with a neighbour. E.g. to exchange personal data such as a telephone number or to come to an agreement when you lend something. Always treat each other with respect and the house rules are also applicable in a privatechat.

You can start a private chat in 2 ways :

Via the website :

Click on 'Neighbours' in the menu at the top.
Click the 'Private chat' button next to your neighbour's name.
Write a message at the bottom of the chat window and click 'Send'.

Or

Click on 'Chats' in the menu at the top.
Click the 'Start new chat' button.
Choose and select a neighbour.
Write a message at the bottom of the chat window and click 'Send'.

Via the mobile app :

Open the app.
Click on 'Neighbours' in the main menu.
Click the 'Chat' button next to your neighbour's name.
Write a message at the bottom of the chat window and click 'Send'.

Or

Open the app.
Click on 'Chat' in the main menu.
Click the 'Start new chat' button.
Choose and select a neighbour.
Write a message at the bottom of the chat window and click 'Send'.


PS : In the neighbours list there is a button 'Private chat' next to the name of each of your neighbours. There will be no button next to your own name as you cannot have a private conversation with yourself.
