Our experience, knowledge and lessons learned - all here just for you.
Conversations allow you and your team members to freely communicate and share valuable information without needing to leave the platform.
You can create a conversation for a specific topic, discuss a translation, ask for help, or just give instructions. Once you are done you can simply close the conversation.
Conversations are shared within the whole organization, meaning all your team members are notified whenever a new conversation is created or a new message has been added to an existing one.
Accessing the conversations
The conversations can be accessed in two ways:
From the conversations icon
The general conversations window will be displayed.
- In the top navigation bar, click the conversation icon, as marked below.
From the editor side panel
The conversations window for a specific text segment will be displayed.
Access the editor, e.g. from the top navigation bar.
Select the text segment you want to add a comment to.
In the editor side bar, click add comment.
This will create a new conversation and automatically reference the selected text segment.
