It's easy to create a link between an ipushpull page and a specific Symphony chatroom to streamline conversations about your data. Once you've created a link, two features are activated:
- a chat button appears on the ipushpull toolbar each time you load the page. Clicking the button takes you straight to that chatroom.
- the Share feature is activated on the right-click menu. This lets you share rows of data from the page into the chat, so users without ipushpull can see them.
Linking a page to a chatroom
To link a page to a chatroom, first load the page, click the Settings gearwheel, and select the DETAILS tab:
Next, find the Conversation ID of the Symphony chatroom you want to link the page to.
To find the Conversation ID:
- Launch the Symphony chat
- Click on any message timestamp in the chat. This will open the Message Status sidebar. Copy the Conversation ID:
- Paste it into the Conversation ID field in the ipushpull App
- Hit SAVE
Launching the Chat Room
After setting up this link, the Chat button will appear in the toolbar:
Click it to launch the chat.
Sharing Data into the Chat Room
If you select a range of data from your page then right click on your mouse, the Share option will be available:
When you click the Share button the app displays what you are about to share:
You can enter an optional message at this stage. When you click SEND the data gets sent to the chat:
Note that the ipushpull bot has to be a member of the room you are sending the message to.
