Setting your status is a great way to let your teammates know what you're working on and whether you're available.

To set your status, click on your name/picture icon in the top left corner. From here, you can Set yourself as away or online Update your status to share with the team what you're doing.

To view your team's status

Likewise, you can view your teams status to quickly know whether they are online or what they're working on.

On the left-hand-side underneath the "Team" section, you can see the teammates in your organization. If your teammates are online, they will have the green bubbled filled on their picture icon. To view their status, hover over the emoji next to their name.

Sending a direct message

To send a message, click directly on the teammates name. From here, you can communicate using the same interface that we use for texting.
