Our in-app chat room has been a hub for communications at events as well as at the membership level. These chat rooms were perfect for starting discussions, scheduling meet-ups, and other various communications with attendees/ members.
But what about the conversations you want to keep private?
Our solution: one-to-one messaging between app users.
Our new feature, one-to-one messaging, allows app users to communicate with one another directly in the mobile app.
To allow one-to-one messaging with another app user, you must first request to make a connection. This request will notify the user that you have a connection with them pending.
Once you have made a connection, your permissions for one-to-one messaging will be open for that user. Simply locate My Connections from the side menu, tap the user you want to message, and tap the Actions button to start a new message.
To prevent the possibility of spamming, we have also implemented the ability to block a user. Simply tap the Actions button on the user and select Block user.
Want this feature for your own app?
