iSymphony comes with a built in Chat system that allows Users to perform simple point to point instant messaging with other Users in the system.
The iSymphony Chat system does not rely on any external chat servers and will function out of the box.
Starting Chat Sessions
Users can click the Chat Button on a User Box in the Users Widget in order to start a Chat session with that User. A Chat session Account will be added to the Account List in your My Stream Widget. You can select this Account to view the Chat Panel for the session.
Once a Chat session is started and you have the Chat Panel open for the session you can enter the text of the message in the text area in the Chat Panel and hit the Enter Key to send the message.
To insert line breaks in your Chat messages you can use Shift-Enter.
Ending Chat Sessions
When you wish to end a Chat session you can click the X button on top right hand corner of the Chat Panel or select the X button on the Chat session Account on the Account list in the My Stream Widget.
