Create a chat room
Use CreateChatRoom to create a chat room:
- Chat room short names must be unique. If a room with the same name already exists when you attempt to create a chat room, you will get a message to that effect.
- Chat rooms persist until they are deleted with DeleteChatRoom. You only need to create a chat room once.
Join the chat room
Choose File ▶ New ▶ Chat and enter the chat room short name to join the chat room:
Add an optional banner to the chat room
To add a banner to a chat room—for example, to give it a prominent title or description—see the workflow Add a Banner to a Chat Room.
