Invite others to join you
What's teamwork without your team? Adding people is super easy—just click on the People tab in a space and invite your colleagues by email. Once they sign in or sign up, they'll automatically be added to the space you've invited them to.
What is the difference between a space and a team?
You can think of a space as a virtual room with two or more people, where you can send messages, make calls, have video meetings, share files, and whiteboard with everyone in the space.
Teams help keep everything organized and are great for a group of people working together on multiple projects and across various spaces.
Sending someone a message
You can quickly contact internal or external people using chat for direct messages or creating a group space.
1Click the add icon "+" and choose to Contact a person or Create a space.
2Type the name or email of the person in the Search field.
3Click the person you want to chat with.
4Once in the space, type your message and press Enter. It's that easy.Learn how to send a message
Send a typo? No problem, hover over your message and click to edit your message. Then, make your changes and click Update. After you update the message, you'll see (Edited) next to it in the space.
To get someone’s attention @mention their name. They will see @ against the Space, showing that their name has been tagged. Or use @all to notify everyone in the space.

You can customize your message by formatting the text, inserting emojis and gifs, or adding attachments and screen captures. Let someone know how you feel about a message using emoji reactions.
