Are you a boss? Maybe not technically, but you should always be living the boss life. And that means taking control of your work environment so you can pop that collar and win those dollars
We’re always working to make HipChat a place that helps you not only communicate with your team, but also feel empowered to work the way you want.
We’ve gathered some ways to take the reins by customizing HipChat to fit your needs.
1. Use per-room notifications
Set the stage for success by focusing on important chats and silencing others. In HipChat, you can set notifications per room to moderate the noise level from each chat.
This feature is currently in the HipChat web app as a beta. In any room, just click the three dots in the top right corner, and click Room Notifications.
2. Customize your HipChat appearance
One size does not fit all. And the same goes for HipChat. Now in HipChat web, you can select how you want HipChat to look.
Choose a dark or light theme, adjust text density, add or remove avatars, and show either names or mentions.
The power is yours. Use it wisely.
3. Change your @mention name
Lastly, let’s find your chat identity. In HipChat, you can customize your @mention name, meaning you can finally be called Superman (or, in my case, BawsLady).
Just go to your Account Settings to change your @mention name.
When it comes to your work life, you’re in charge. We’re simply here to give you the tools that help put you on boss status.
We’d love to hear your from you: leave your thoughts on the beta features, and let us know what else you want to see on HipChat.
