Group chats are great, but sometimes, you want to discuss things 1-1. With Flock, you can send a message to any team member, and start conversations. When you need more people to weigh in on a decision, you can add a few colleagues to a 1-1 chat to turn it into a channel.
To start a 1-1 chat:
- Click on the Contacts Search bar and search for a contact.
- In the search results, click the contact to launch a 1-1 chat.
You can use keyboard shortcuts to search for a contact:
- Ctrl+N (Windows app)
- Cmd+N (Mac app)
- Ctrl + K (web app for Windows)
- Ctrl + K (web app for Mac)
1-1 chats are best used for quick conversations on a specific topic or for questions that you want to ask just one person. For group projects, create a channel and add all stakeholders to make discussions and decisions easier for your team.
1-1 chats are private. They are visible only to you and the person you are chatting with.
