Live Chat Feature
We are slowly rolling Freedcamp own chat now. Please watch for announcements!
Alex Ragozzino commented
Are there any plans for non-Slack version of a live chat feature?

This is critical! We are dying with Skype. Needs to be integrated here. At least have personal inboxes/personal chat. Group chat is very important. 🙏🙏🙏
It's supposed to be by the end of the year but sooner the better.
When will this be ready?

I just moved my entire team over here. I didn't pay for our previous workplace and it had chat implementations. This is the one feature the entire team is very disappointed with, which makes a huge difference in our decision to stay. What is the status of this? It's obviously possible with all the other workplaces now available online since the "almost ready" comment.
Would be great if the chat app is a stand alone app based on discussions board.
I would also like to know what the status of this is. The last comment from Igor said it was almost ready over a year ago now. This would be a great feature!

Any news on this??
The announcement for its availability was out since 2011. Any update on this?

I'm also wondering when this will be available?
New chat app was "almost ready" in february 2019.
Is it ready now ?
Or do we have a different meaning of "almost" ?
When will this feature be available?
This would be great!
Wondered if this will be looked at? Chat like FB messenger within Freedcamp would be ideal.
I just registered for free Freedcamp. Seems like a great tool but the one most important thing I was looking for was a real time chat with my team. I come from Ryver and their messaging system was perfect but they are no longer free and we can't afford it. Like many others have commented, a Facebook messenger style would be perfect. What I want is real-time, in the app notification when my team has responded so we can have a live conversation. I see that this thread is years old. Has there been any new plans in this regard?
I would like to be able to have a dialog with individuals without creating a private discussion for each person.

Interesting thread here.
I would prefer Desktop Notifications. Surely Pusher.com is not the only means to make this happen. I use a Help Desk system called Help Scout. Their push notifications are very nice.

the board/wall nor discussion applets are going to meet our requirements. we would like chat functionality and will have to migrate to something that has chat functionality built in if it is not something in the plans or process of being implemented. we love freedcamp though! helps us so much as a nonprofit to stay organized :)
@Wasim - sorry - we only build Freedcamp in-house after our recent journey with mobile apps development - https://blog.freedcamp.com/2017/09/07/android-application-status/
You can build any tool for Freedcamp when we will release API but I have no ETA for it at this stage either. Please subscribe to API feature and you will get updates from it.
Sorry for a late response - UserVoice put your response to spam and I only now decided to review and recover good posts from it.

Please checkout Facebook Workplace Chat, it's very similar to that.

I think chatting facility for each project should be there as well.
