The Community tab offers a variety of methods and tools to communicate with employees in real time. The two main forums for communication are Team Channels and Direct Messaging.
Team Channels can be used to share information with large or small groups of employees. When accessing the Community tab, all active Channels and Direct Messages a user has participated in will be displayed. When a new message is received, it appears as the top row in the list, and a blue dot on the right indicates a new message is waiting.
At the top of the Community tab, a list of online users is displayed horizontally, each avatar marked with a green dot indicating online status. These users are active in the app and can be reached with a message in real time.
