Flock makes real-time communication easier by letting you know when your messages have been delivered or read. Read receipts and chat state in Flock are non-intrusive and easy to understand.
Read receipts in 1-1 chats
When you send a message in a 1-1 chat, Flock tells you if it has been sent, delivered, or read.
Here is the list of read receipts in Flock:
Sending - The message is being sent to the server.
Sent - The message has reached the server.
Delivered - The message has reached the recipient's app.
Read - The recipient has read the message.
Read receipts in channels
Read receipts in channels work a little differently than in 1-1 chats. Once you send a message in a channel, you can see a list of channel members that read it.
- Hover the mouse cursor over your message.
- In the Message Actions menu, click on the down arrow icon to see more actions.
- Click on Read By.
- Flock shows you a list of channel members that read your message, as well as a list of channel members that haven't read it yet.
Receipts for incoming messages
These receipts apply to messages you receive in both 1-1 chats and channels.
Unread - You've received a message but not read it.
Reading - You're reading the message.
Read - You've read the message.
- Once the recipient has read your message, Flock tells you if they are replying. In the Chat Area, just above the Message Editor, you'll see something like "Thomas is typing...".
