How does the group chat function work?

If you want to start a private conversation with several of your neighbours, you can use the group chat.

When to use the group chat?

Note: it's important for the neighbourhood's health that you mainly post your messages in the neighbourhood feed (and not in private conversations). If not, there will be no more interaction in the feed! So use the chat primarily for things that are repetitive (e.g. a group to go running every Sunday) or stuff that needs to be talked about privately (among ambassadors e.g.).

How do you start a conversation?

Go to Chats. You can now select 'New group'. Choose a suitable name. Your neighbours can also see it, so make it clear. Then you can also choose a colour. Click or tap 'next'.

Now you have to select who will become part of the group. Go through the neighbour list, or quickly search for specific neighbours by using the search bar. You can also search on street level. Click or tap 'Next' once you have selected all members.

Now your group chat is ready to use. Your messages will appear on the right. Your neighbours' messages will appear on the left, along with their profile picture.

How can you see the group members?

Click or tap in the right upper corner to open the settings and then click on 'Edit group'. Here you can see, in addition to the settings, who is part of the group chat.

How can you change the settings of your conversation?

Click or tap in the right upper corner to open the settings and then click 'Edit group'. Here you can change the group name and colour, add new members and change whether or not you want to receive notifications of the chats.

How do I get out of a group chat?

Click or tap in the right upper corner to open the settings. You can choose 'Hide chat' or 'Leave group'. This cannot be undone. If you hide the chat, it is still shown to the other members of the group as if you were still a part of it. If you leave the group, you will no longer appear in the group list.
