When a chat message is received while Share is running, a chat panel expands below the Participant List.
Note: If you are presenting, the chat window will expand below your Participant View panel.
If you receive multiple messages, each message is minimized to a chat card in the chat panel. Messages from new users appear at the bottom and push the list up, while new messages from previous senders will return them to the bottom of the list. To reply to a message, expand the chat card by pressing the Expand button at the top of the card.
If the chat panel is minimized, the most recent message appears in the minimized tab displaying the first line of the new message, the name of the sender, and the number of new messages from the sender.
If the panel is collapsed, clicking on the most recent message will expand the chat window for that user only. To respond to older messages, the chat panel must first be expanded.
If the Share presentation is fully expanded and covering the participant list and chat panel, new messages appear in chat bubbles at the side of the screen. These chat bubbles can be expanded as normal.
When a Share presentation begins, the chat window defaults to expanded if there are active chats, or otherwise maintain its status when Share is initiated - it will remain expanded if it was previously expanded, or minimized if it was previously minimized.
