Enable, Disable, and Delete Chat

Modified on Fri, 12 Aug 2022 at 04:42 PM

Expanded Chat controls for hosts during sessions and while using LMS integrations.

  1. Hosts / Instructors can disable participant-to-participant chat, while keeping communication open between hosts and participants. Other options include completely disabling the chat and allowing direct chats between all users.
  2. Hosts / Instructors can delete single chats from any user. While our Toxicity Filter blocks many disruptive messages from ever making it into the chat, we know there are other situations when an instructor might need to clean up the chat for the sake of clarity or classroom management.
  3. Hosts / Instructors can also clear the chat of all messages. All users may download the chat. Hosts now also have the option to delete the entire chat. This will remove the entire chat history for everyone in the session, including from the LMS portal (if applicable). Students and TAs are not able to clear the chat.
  4. Hosts / Instructors can turn off the chat or disable direct chat communication in a session.

Hosts Only: To turn the chat off or disable direct chat, click the gear icon to open the settings area where you can toggle chat on or off.
