The More the Merrier! Introducing Group Direct Messaging
With our latest update, you can now start group DMs with anyone in your Foko Retail community.
Just like regular direct messages, group DMs are private and only visible to the people involved. Group messages are perfect if there’s something you want to discuss with a few colleagues rather than share with the whole channel. This allows for more targeted and specific messaging – for example, you can now quickly get in touch with a group of store managers to ask a question or discuss recent directives.
How To Start A Group Direct Message
To start a new group message, tap the “+” beside ‘”Direct Messages”. You can search for users using the search bar at the top of the screen or scroll through the recently messaged bar displayed below. When you’re adding people to the DM, you can also de-select someone if you’ve added them by mistake by clicking their name at the top and then deleting it. Once you have added all the people you want to message, press “Start” and you’re all set!
