Global Chat

  • This feature is still not intended for use on any live events, but will be released soon. It is only meant to be tested on non-live events. In order for this feature to be enabled, the Legacy CSS Theme must be toggled off and Attendee Global Presence must be enabled.
  • To enable both the experimental CSS Theme and the Global Chat plugin, please reach out to your Eventfinity Representative/Manager. Once enabled, Admin Users can establish the number of chat rooms, designate chat moderators, and determine which pages the chat will be accessible. Further documentation can be found on the Evenfinity Helpsite.
