Group Chat Notifications

Updates for admin users about new messages will only be sent once per hour. However, if there is a direct reply to message the notification will be send immediately. Admins can turn off notifications here

  • Student Ambassadors

Student ambassadors will be notified of new messages in a group chat once per hour. If any user replies directly to their message they will always be notified. Ambassadors can always enable/disable email notifications

  • Prospective students

I) When prospects are active in the Group Chat, they do not receive any notifications. The threshold of being "active"/"inactive" 3 mins, if tab is closed.

II) When prospects are inactive in the group chat, they will receive a notification once per hour if they have a certain number of messages unread in a particular chat group. They will also be notified every time someone replies to a direct message, and once per hour about non direct messages in the group chat.
