In real life, we know not to disturb someone when they are in a meeting. How do we know if someone is busy when we want to chat about some project on Flock? To help you determine this, Flock shows you two details at the top of every 1-1 chat - Presence and Last Seen.
To see your teammate’s availability:
Open a direct message to a teammate and look at the top section of the chat window. Beside their name, you’ll notice a few things:
Is your teammate available right now?
- Green is available
- Orange is unavailable
- Gray is invited but not joined
- Last Seen
Where was s/he last seen? On mobile or desktop? How many minutes/hours/days ago?
Presence and Last Seen details help you and your teammates connect at a time that works for all of you. So, take a quick look before sending a direct message to a colleague - see if they are available right now.
