The Users tab of the chat room editing interface allows management of users who are present in the respective room. It allows you to kick users, add users to the room and assign them administrator rights.


The tab features a list of users that are currently present in the chat room and users that have elevated rights for the room. Off-line users with no special permissions do not appear on the list.




Adding a user

Before adding the user to the room, you need to assign them certain permissions. For this purpose, the Admin level drop-down list offers the following options:

None - the user won't have any special permission.

Join - the user will receive permission to join the room, but no special management rights. This option is available only in private rooms.

Admin - the user will receive rights to administer the room. A room administrator can adjust the properties of the room, moderate messages and manage users present in that room.




User actions
